(Note: substitute perl -e 'use MIME:: Base64;print decode_base64(join("",));' for base64decode if needed). Using expect you can simulate a user accepting the certificate. I created this so that I could download code from svn in a Dockerfile. /usr/bin/expect -f set svn_username [lindex $argv 0] set svn_password [lindex $argv 1] set svn_url [lindex $argv 2] spawn svn --username=$ --password=$ list $ expect "(R)eject, accept (t)emporarily or accept (p)ermanently?
