[cabfpub] Bylaw update proposal

I would like to propose a slight update to the bylaws to reflect our
membership requirements. Section 2.1, part (b) talks about what applicants
need to provide when requesting membership. As you know, one of the
requirements in section (a) is that if a CA, they ".actively issue
certificates to Web servers that are openly accessible from the Internet
using any of the mainstream browsers" (Ref 2.1 (a) (1+2))


However, in section (b) where we state what applicants must provide, we
neglected to ask for a website where we can see one of these certificates.
Hence, every time we get an application, this information is missing and we
have to go back and ask for it. And in some cases, the applicant didn't
realize it was required and hence isn't qualified yet. 


Therefore, I'd like to suggest we add a number (7) to section (b),
Applicants should supply the following information:


"(7) For Issuing and Root CA applicants, provide a URL of at least one
website visible on the public Internet which contains an SSL certificate
issued by your Issuing CA."


Before I make this a ballot, are there any questions or objections to this
