No

From the readme:
------------------------
At the moment it is not possible to store these
certificates permanently, but you will be prompted
every time you connect. This feature is intended for
one of the next releases.
------------------------

Any eta on when this feature will be available? Our
certs are provided by Comodo and openssl does not
appear to have their CA.

    There will not be an 'Auto Accept of Unkown Certificate'. What may be in future is a private store for certificates, where you can store certificates that davfs2 may accept. But you will have to verify the certificates before you store them. But I have no plan when I might be able to do this (e.g. I personally think support for national languages is more important and I should do this first).

    Best thing anyway:
    If you trust certificates signed by Comodo, install the Comodo CA Certificate on your system. Your have to read some OpenSSL documentation, but it is not too hard.

    Next best solution:
    Have a look into the patches list.

    Greetings

    The new release 1.2.0 supports certificates that can not be verified using the system's CA certificates.
    You will have to store the server certificate on disk and configure your mount in davfs2.conf to use this certificate. When the server presents this certificate, it will be accepted without further verification.

    Cheers
