This topic has been reported in bugs multiple times already.

First, there was a close button.
Then people complained about the close button because they thought it was not
logical.
Then we removed the close button.

I think the cert manager is an individual window and not a dialog.

If we add an OK button, they will come and demand a cancel button.
And if we add an cancel button, this means we will have to make everything undoable.
That's just not possible currently, because all modifications are immediate,
might include hardware tokens, and are not revertable.

I suggest we leave it the way it is.

Please, if you disagree with me, try to find the bug that removed the close
button, and reopen it. By doing so you can discuss with people who advocated for
the button's removal.

That's fine - I will leave it alone.  Unless there is a standardized UI
guideline document that the client is supposed to be following.  Until I find
it, dead.
