What changed in Let's Encrypt Subscriber Agreement


Disclaimer: I’m not a lawyer, and this document does not constitute legal advice. My paraphrases might be imprecise or entirely wrong.

Let’s Encrypt just released a new version of their Subscriber Agreement. It will take effect on August 1. Despite the fact that Let’s Encrypt is a young, progressive initiative, they’re preparing the document in Microsoft Word and publishing it as PDF. And that’s it: no list of changes, nothing at all. The community is already grunting about that on the forums, while more enthusiastic of us post text versions and git diffs of the documents.

Unfortunately, the output of git diff (even with --word-diff option) is hard to comprehend at times, so I decided to save you some effort and prepare a more human-readable list of changes.

So without further ado—what was changed?

And that’s it: all the differences between versions 1.0.1 and 1.1.1 of Let’s Encrypt Subscriber Agreement, listed nicely in a human-readable form. Hope this helped!
