Subject: [cabf_validation] Simpler language for


My team was going over the first paragraph of that says:

"Confirming the Applicant's control over the requested FQDN by confirming the presence of a Request Token or Random Value contained in the content of a file or on a web page in the form of a meta tag one of the following under the "/.well‐known/pki‐validation" directory, or another path registered with IANA for the purpose of Domain Validation, on the Authorization Domain Name that is accessible by HARICA via HTTP/HTTPS over an Authorized Port."


and had a very hard reading and understanding the requirement. This 6-liner sentence is very hard to read, especially for a non-native English speaker and probably needs some language improvement. Could the working group please spend some time and try to make it a little more simple?



Thank you,
