Subject Re: [DISCUSS]: Digital signing of documents and macros
Date Fri, 18 Apr 2014 14:20:34 GMT
Hi,

Besides we validate issue below with some self-signed certificates that are
attached to this issue, we are looking for volunteers to test this feature
with the upcoming RC4 by:
1. Create a new authority certificate and use this to create new test certs
2. Test the validation with these test certs

Please let us know your test results and share(upload) your test documents
with valid and good certificates, in below issue if possible. Thanks!
