New certs are already being generated, but nobody had the time to do the transition, there is a risk of the automation failing (I think the web server needs to be made to reload the certificate, which is problematic as an ordinary user and there is no way I'd ever run any of that letsencrypt stuff as root), it is also a step backwards as the letsencrypt one is a domain-only certificate, and due to TLS's idiotic design decisions it's not possible to just deliver both certificates...
Thus the current situation.
Lack of time for proper testing being the biggest issue though...
