In case people aren't aware, to renew the kind of cert which expired
you need to prove your identity which includes a proof of address
which usually means a snail mail card in the post with a verification
code plus lots of mailing identity documents to people. This is why
it takes weeks. I have several alarms in my phone to remind me in the
weeks leading up to cert expiry so I don't forget.

I will admit some surprise the Boost certs weren't all renewed
immediately after Heartbleed. It might be a good idea to renew the
whole lot.
