[Bug 63877] New: User notes mod_md v2.2.0

Bug ID: 63877
Summary: User notes mod_md v2.2.0
Product: Apache httpd-2
Version: 2.5-HEAD
Hardware: PC
Status: NEW
Severity: normal
Priority: P2
Component: mod_md
Target Milestone: ---

Already posted this on dev list, but maybe better to post here.

Mod_md v2.2.0 from trunk did a complete cycle with "renew-window": "86d" and
"warn-window": "87d",

All looks fine including the stapling renew, but some user notes:

The mod_md times are in the log and mod_status in GMT, it should be better the
computer/local time zone and not only in GMT, this like mod_status and log

===server-status [Sun Oct 20 08:50:46] Activity: Renew in ~4 hours

After that ~4hours the renew time has reached but not run yet:
===server-status [Sun Oct 20 16:50] Activity: Ongoing...
Maybe better a message that explains what is ongoing ?

When the time for the next run has reached, it is renewed :
===server-status [Sun Oct 20 18:56:10] Activity: The certificate for the
managed domain has been renewed successfully and can be used from Mon, 21 Oct
2019 15:56:08 GMT on. Next run in ~22 hours

It is already valid/usable by restarting Apache and we do not have to wait ~22
hours. It conflicts also with the Valid-From date in the certificate which is a
day earlier (the real valid date), that is Sun, 20 Oct 2019 15:56:08 GMT

Maybe better to explain more ?

After that ~22 hours the Notify command starts my script which restarts
Apache, and we have the new certificate running :)

When Loglevel is info: the only entry from mod_md during the cycle is with the
restart :
[Mon Oct 21 18:01:54.277303 2019] [md:info] [pid 8656:tid 776] AH10068: staged set activated

Maybe to consider more log entries for loglevel info.
Suggestion log every status change from server-status Activity.

Also there is a job.json file left in the md/tmp. This file has more info then
the copied file to md/domains, namely is contains also at the top:
"detail": "new certificate successfully saved in domains",
"activity": "moving tmp to become new domains"
"type": "message-installed"

I think it is save to delete the md/temp/job.json ?
