I just wanted to share an issue with el Capitan and latest preview of Mono.

This the code I used which worked in Yosemite and below:

public static bool InjectCA(X509Certificate2 caCert)
            if (caCert == null) return false;

            Log.Entry(LogName, "Injecting root CA: " + caCert.FriendlyName);
                var store = new X509Store(StoreName.Root, StoreLocation.LocalMachine);
                return true;
            catch (Exception ex)
                Log.Error(LogName, "Unable to inject CA");
                Log.Error(LogName, ex);

            return false;

The above function prints out the following error:
"Access to the path /usr/share/.mono is denied"

Just wanted to let you folks know
