[Cscwg-public] Updated CRL Revocation Date Clarification Pre-Ballot

Hi Corey,

Rather than marking up the document, I have a few comments:

  1.  When should we use revocationDate and revocation date OR invalidity date and invalidtyDate? I think we should make the use consistent in this section.
  2.  Do we want a footnote or a Note similar to what is done in the SSL BRs?
  3.  It would be good to clarify if the effective date applies only to future revocations or all revocations. As such, could we state that "For Code Signing Certificates revoked on or after 2022-07-01, if the CA includes the Invalidity Date CRL entry extension ..."

Thanks, Bruce.

Thank you to Rob, Bruce, and Dimitris for the valuable feedback on the original pre-ballot draft. I have incorporated the conclusions from our discussions on the list and the last call into the latest draft; please see the attached.

There were two changes:

  *   There is now a footnote that better explains the rationale for using the revocationDate field to convey the "invalidity date"
  *   The effective date for the Invalidity Date extension value change has been pushed back to July 1st, 2022.

Let me know if there are any questions or comments. Barring any further substantial changes, I think we're ready at this point to look for two endorsers to push the ballot forward.
