As recommended by the LE devs, we've lowered the autorenew time from 85 days down to 60 days. This should give people more time to resolve issues, should anything go wrong. Quote: "The Technical Advisory Board, chose a 90-day certificate lifetime to start with, with an expectation that people will want to auto-renew at the 60-day mark. “. Also, the rate limit has been changed from 5 to 20 top-level domain requests per week. There is nothing to change in DA, but lets you make more requests, if needed.
