Process for Updating the Policy

The general process that will be followed to update the Mozilla CA Certificate Policy is as follows. Issues and potential changes will be tracked in the policy issue tracker.

  1. A Mozilla representative will bring forward an item for discussion in the forum.
  2. There will be a discussion of how, if at all, to modify the policy for the item.
  3. At some point, which may be at the start, a Mozilla representative will draft proposed text.
  4. A Mozilla representative will summarize a consensus that has been reached, and/or state the official position of Mozilla in both the discussion in and in the policy issue tracker.
  5. The draft policy in Github will be updated, if required.
  6. The issue will be closed.

At intervals, a new policy version will be released based on the current draft, along with a timeline for compliance.
