I've successfully transitioned existing StartSSL certificates + HPKP / HSTS to letsencrypt.sh (via the Debian package).

I know I am not the first to do such a thing, but maybe you'd like to have some quick pointers to get this resolved ASAP.


PS. The most important thing is to initially tell letsencrypt.sh to reuse an existing private key for requesting new certs.
