As mentioned before, the exact number of certs required is still unsure (some platforms, like irc and www, may require more then one cert), but for now i want to prioritise
As for vendor, Comodo EssentialSSL seems to be the cheapest, they offer certs for e9.35 per year or 37.35 for 5 years.
So 6 * e9.35 = e56.10 would be a good start to get the very basics covered as soon as possible.
I'm pretty sure we'll need a few more for technical reasons and there are (probably quite a lot of) global sites that i forgot or didn't prioritise, so it'd be good to have a reasonable yearly budget (say max e250/year?).
