When timestamping is enabled for a digitally signed Export as PDF, the signing code needs to read the URL of the configured TSAs and select the one currently set as default.
It will then use that URL to retrieve a timestamp to embed in the signature.
This request is only for implementing the selection mechanism.
The code only needs to be executed if timestamping was enabled for this particular export. Else the default (time from local computer) should be used as it is currently

Part of Bug 84881 - Add RFC 3161 timestamp when digitally signing PDF (tracker)
Status -> NEW
Severity -> enhancement
Does "select" here means that the user selects manually, or that there would be code to select one automatically, based on some heuristic (like reachability and response time)?
No. The code must select the one TSA URL configured as default in the Options. Basically, it should just read in the config, get the TSA URLs (if multiple) and select the default one. That URL is then to be used in the next step (#88431).
This will be in 4.5 (It's in nightly since about March 1st). Thanks for the excellent work!
