Dear all,

In case you missed that tentative from Mozilla to clarify a bit CA and their subordinate CAs...
"Mozilla has warned certificate authorities included in its root CA Certificate Program that they only have a few weeks left to comply with the company's new policy, which requires CAs to adhere to the CA/Browser Forum Baseline Requirements and provide proof of audits of their subordinate certificates. The company made the policy change last year, but gave CAs about a year to comply and now that grace period is running out."
