Hi all,

There has been some extensive discussion of support for wildcard domain 
validation in https://github.com/letsencrypt/acme-spec/issues/64.

After talking about this with Peter Eckersley in person today, I wrote 
up a proposal for handling wildcard domain validation: 
https://github.com/letsencrypt/acme-spec/pull/97. Feedback is very welcome.

Thanks,
Yan
