Ballot 196 - Define "Audit Period"

Purpose of Ballot: It appears that CAs are sometimes confused by the phrase
Audit Period. This ballot adds a definition of that phrase to the BRs, in
the hope of heading off any further misunderstandings. 

The following motion has been proposed by Gervase Markham of Mozilla and
endorsed by Ryan Sleevi of Google and Jody Cloutier of Microsoft:



Add the following definition to section 1.6.1 of the Baseline Requirements:

Audit Period: In a period-of-time audit, the period between the first day
(start) and the last day of operations (end) covered by the auditors in
their engagement. (This is not the same as the period of time when the
auditors are on-site at the CA.) The coverage rules and maximum length of
audit periods are defined in section 8.1.



The procedure for approval of this Final Maintenance Guideline ballot is as
follows (exact start and end times may be adjusted to comply with applicable
Bylaws and IPR Agreement):

showing the set of changes from the Final Guideline section(s) intended to

the Final Guideline section(s) as they exist at the time a ballot is

proposed subsequently, except as provided in Bylaw Section 2.3(j).
