As far as I've seen gist caches the gist_cacert.pem in /tmp and doesn't remove it when it's done uploading the gist. This can lead to stale certificates when upgrading between version of gist.

For me there are 2 possibilities to handle this:

  • (desirable) remove /tmp/gist_cacert.pem when gist is created
  • (not desirable) find a way to check for corruption/wrong /tmp/gist_cacert.pem

I submitted a fix to the homebrew Formula to work around this by deleting /tmp/gist_cacert.pem on install: mxcl/homebrew#18558
