Hi Jason,

>        4) await verdict from Certification Team
>        5) celebrate or cry pitifully

You might get less problems if you don't ask for payment in advance.
Once people have paid money, they really expect perfect service and  
feedback, and ways to get re-evaluated, or file complaints. Without  
money in advance, you can simply do the point 4) based on "no  
correspondence on decisions possible". :)

That I'll handle. Will go fine.

That I can set up too. It will be a mailing list actually, one that's  
not free to subscribe to. :)
