Notes mod_md v2.2.0
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  does.

===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 :)

In have Logevel 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 ?
