I think what happened here is that not the certificate you issued will
expire but the identity validation; which is what you actually pay for
not the certificate itself. That means from august on you wont be able
to create new certs unless you pay the fee and get your identity
validated again. But in our case its simple: just revalidate just before
our cert is about to expire.
