DigiCert votes YES on SC-65v2.


While the ballot motion contains a potentially confusing redline link, it
does not affect the actual text changes introduced by the ballot.
Additionally, the reformat proposed by this ballot is valuable in getting us
closer to consistently formatted documents, so it is good to not delay this
work further.


Moving forward, it would be useful to develop guidance for ballot authors on
how redline links should be created to ensure that proposed changes are
clearly communicated.

3647 format v2



The Extended Validation Certificates guidelines (EVGs) were developed and
written in a specific format. Since then, the RFC 3647 has been the basis
(and the de-facto standard) for the CA/Browser Forum to develop other

This ballot aims to update the EVGs to follow the RFC 3647 format without
changing any content, just moving current sections to those defined in the
RFC 3647. There are no normative requirements changes.

(BRs) which needs to point to the new sections of the EVGs. Both documents
will be updated according to the latest version published.

This ballot is proposed by Iñigo Barreira (Sectigo) and endorsed by Pedro
Fuentes (OISTE) and Ben Wilson (Mozilla).
