I am not sure if this a VOTING PERIOD time for the ballot. The ballot does not appear to be updated based on discussion feedback. I also do not see who has proposed the ballot (assume Tom), nor do I see the endorsers (assume Ben and Martijn), but it would be good to clearly state, so we know everyone proposing is still on board.
If this is the voting period, then Entrust votes No to ballot SC-59.

Thanks, Bruce.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [Servercert-wg] SC-59 Weak Key Guidance - Move to Vote

After consideration and consultation via the SCWG mailing list, we have decided to move forward with the Weak Keys Guidance Ballot (SC-59) as is, save for the effective date.

We believe that the requested date of November 15, 2023, will allow enough time for Certificate Authorities to enact any changes to their systems to ensure that they perform the weak key checks on all CSRs submitted for TLS certificates. As such, we would like to move the ballot to the voting stage.

- Motion Begins -

This ballot modifies the "Baseline Requirements for the Issuance and Management of Publicly-Trusted Certificates" ("Baseline Requirements"), based on Version 2.0.0.

Notes: Upon beginning discussion for SC-59, the then-current version of the BRs was 1.8.4; since that time several ballots have been approved, leading to the increment of the version to 1.8.7 and eventually 2.0.0, which is the latest approved version of the BRs.  The changes introduced in SC-59 do not conflict with any of the recent ballots. As observed with other ballots in the past, minor administrative updates must be made to the proposed ballot text before publication such that the appropriate Version # and Change History are accurately represented (e.g., to indicate these changes will be represented in Version 2.0.1).

MODIFY the Baseline Requirements as specified in the following Redline: https://github.com/cabforum/servercert/compare/a0360b61e73476959220dc328e3b68d0224fa0b3...SSLcom:servercert:958e6ccac857b826fead6e4bd06d58f4fdd7fa7a
