Brian, et al.,

You are correct, and we have plans to generate a new set of test SMDs before 
that date. I published the current set of test SMDs in order to provide the 
community with valid test SMDs while a new set of test SMDs (containing a 
certificate with a longer expiration date) is generated.

The TMCH pilot CRL has a "Next Update" on  Jun 25 23:59:59 2018 GMT, and we 
have that date in our calendars.

The TMCH pilot CA will expire on Jun 25 23:59:59 2023 GMT, and we also have 
that date in our calendars.

Gustavo et al.,

I have been trying to update our system to use the new test SMD files, and 
wanted to make sure I'm not missing something (which is certainly possible, as 
I am not an expert in all this).

Looking at the contents of the old and new SMD test files 
(Court-Agent-Arabic-Active.smd in particular), they both contain the same 
embedded certificate, the one whose string begins with "MIIFLz". That 
certificate is valid from June 26, 2013 to June 25, 2018. So even though the 
new test files say they are valid from August 23 of this year until July 10, 
2023, won't they cease to function properly after next June? Would it make 
sense to generate test files with a longer useful life? Or am I
