Codesigning & notarizing

I am using LC 9.6.2rc2 and to the best of my knowledge, it does NOT 
codesign standalone for you. Codesigning and notarization (on macOS) is 
up to you. I codesign and notarize and stable under macOS Mojave using 
Terminal commands and all is working for me.

Apple just sent a notice to developers that an Intermediate Certificate 
expired recently and instructions as to what to do about it. I don't 
know if that may impact you as it depends on what version of Xcode you 
are using and whether you are signing for Mac Store distribution or 
distribution from your own web site.

I have a Levure-based app and my build-codesign-notarize process has been working fine, until I tried with LC 9.6.2 rc2. If I leave the codesigning done by LC get a bunch of errors back when I notarize. If I codesign (but not notarize) the 9.6.2 rc2 built app with AppWrapper it crashes on startup with a "Service exited with abnormal code: 255” error.
