Can bitbucket webhooks post to https endpoints that use a self-signed certificate?

We'd like to initiate a build on our Jenkins build server when changes are pushed to our Bitbucket repo and have set up a webhook, but the requests from Bitbucket fail with "net_err". 

Since that's all the information I have, I'm just guessing at the cause.  The fact that our Jenkins server is using https with a self-signed certificate seems like most obvious place to start looking for problems.  Can anyone confirm whether or not that is supported?

We do not currently support self-signed certificates for webhooks.

If it is 'currently', you may support it in the future?

I don't want to say we'll never support self-signed certificates, but it isn't very likely - especially now that Let's Encrypt is getting under way.

I expect it's going to be a while before Let's Encrypt solves everyone's SSL problems. In the meantime, is there a list of the CAs Bitbucket will trust? And are there any that offer free certs to organizations? I'd prefer a webhook to polling, but I can't see us paying a ton of money just for that feature.
