This CA has been assessed in accordance with the Mozilla project guidelines, and the change approved in bug 1176188. 

The next steps are as follows:
1) A representative of the CA must confirm that all the data in this bug is correct.
2) A Mozilla representative creates a patch with the requested change, and provides a special test version of Firefox.
3) A representative of the CA uses the test version of Firefox and the Certificate Manager to confirm (by adding a comment in this bug) that the correct change has been made.
4) The Mozilla representative requests that another Mozilla representative review the patch.
5) The Mozilla representative adds (commits) the patch to NSS, then closes this bug as RESOLVED FIXED.
6) At some time after that, various Mozilla products will move to using a version of NSS which contains the change. This process is mostly under the control of the release drivers for those products.
