5. Membership application of MSC Trustgate and iTrusChina

MSC Trustgate and iTrusChina were not trusted by a Certificate Consumer of the SCWG so according to the SCWG charter they were granted Associate Membership. The WG designated a period of time of 12 months. Before this time expires, the SCWG will re-examine the associate membership status of these two CAs.

A question was raised about whether these members needed to have applied for inclusion in any Root program. The discussion resulted that this was not a necessary requirement according to the SCWG charter or the Bylaws. In any case, Dimitris confirmed that both of these CAs had applied at least to the Mozilla Root store according to Bugzilla.
