I hope you are aware of the MDNotifyCmd, which is executing a script
on the event that a renew is OK. I am not a coder: for me looks it
not that difficult to make an Else statement when it is NOT_OK. To
notify on error is much more needed then notify on all fine.

We have quite a base of early adopters, my
comments/testing/requests/behaviors are mostly based on the feedback
from them who trying to run on the latest versions. Sadly enough there
are users that are stopping, mostly for them it is not that easy to
understand, special on errors. Also some do not see an added value
over for example certbot or letsencrypt-win-simple, a typical feedback
is at www.apachelounge.com/viewtopic.php?p=35905#35905 .
Time for us to advertise the add value over them.

If yes, then I have to remove the test mod_md download from Apache
Lounge and cannot give anymore support there to the users I
represent. Do not under estimate the many users that are testing via
me, not only windows.
Please don't ask these questions, we all value the ton of time that
you are spending in giving user feedback for mod_md, nobody will ever
ask you to stop trying to improve httpd :)

To be completely honest, the above sentences are not really nice to
read, but I do think that there was no intention to send strong
statements, only to suggest improvements. From my point of view, both
of you are bringing up valid points:
1) Stefan is saying that we should not concentrate on all the things
that can be improved before this first release, but on serious error
conditions that could indicate a broken behavior for our users. The
MDNotifyCmd endless retry (if I got the context correctly) is surely
something to improve in the future, but it is such a difficult subject
(executing scripts in response to an event and figure out what is an
error and what is not) to get right straight away, that it might be
enough for the moment (in my opinion) to release now and then get all
the feedback from a broader users community (the one testing latest
2) Steffen is trying to avoid confusion for our users when dealing
with a directive that might raise some questions due to also to the
fact that the docs do not state exactly what should be the right
Thanks to both for all the work that you are doing, I hope to see some
consensus soon :)
