Using the proposal below (with a 60-day review period), would it be best to
go back to version 1.3.7 of the  Baseline Requirements and add the language
of Ballot 173 (Removal of requirement to cease use of private key due to
incorrect certificate info),  Ballot 174 (Reform of Requirements Relating to
Conflict with Local Laws), and Ballot 175 (Addition of given name and
surname) back in to come up with a version 1.4.2 of the Baseline


For the EV Guidelines for SSL and EV Code Signing, what if we followed the
proposal below (with a 60-day review period) to re-adopt them as they are
currently stated in version 1.6.0?

I think this can be added to the end of a Maintenance Guideline ballot (for
new Guidelines, the review period will be changed to 60 days).

Notices filed, proceed to:



Vote for approval (7 days)
