Log message:
Sort PLIST files.

Unsorted entries in PLIST files have generated a pkglint warning for at
least 12 years. Somewhat more recently, pkglint has learned to sort
PLIST files automatically. Since pkglint 5.4.23, the sorting is only
done in obvious, simple cases. These have been applied by running:

  pkglint -Cnone,PLIST -Wnone,plist-sort -r -F

*NOTE* *This only applies if WWWOFFLE is compiled with SSL/https support*
       WWWOFFLE creates SSL certificates with a 1 year expiry period.  When they
       expire web browsers will start to give errors.  If the WWWOFFLE root
       Certificate Authority certificate expires then all sites will give SSL
       errors.  Deleting the existing WWWOFFLE CA certificate from the browser
       and installing the new one will fix this problem (the WWWOFFLE CA
       certificate can be loaded from https://localhost:8443/certificates/root).
