Hi Martin, any news in that regard?

I'd be happy to help in that regard if needed on the âtechnicalâ part,
i.e. providing the actual initial patch once the auditor gives us the
list of Debian Trusted Organization and other data needed (links, text,
or whatever), and update the needed page or pages to be defined. There
were some wording changes proposal in this bug report, I'd like a formal
acknowledgement from the auditor before changing anything (well, the
auditor is welcome to take care of these changes directly, of course!).
