Subject: Re: [amqp] Standing rule to allow electronic voting

As we discussed at the inaugural TC meeting on Oct 14^th , this TC
(Technical Committee) will meet every other Tuesday starting 25 October,
so we can make steady progress in advancing the AMQP 1.0 specification
to an OASIS Standard. While meeting every other week is essential to
make progress, it would also be useful for us to adopt a standing rule
in this TC that would allow us to make decisions (via email and
electronic ballots) in-between regularly scheduled TC meetings.

I suggest that we adopt such as standing rule (along the lines as
detailed below) during one of our upcoming TC meetings.

   1. In accordance with OASIS Technical Committee Process 2.13
      the OASIS AMQP TC allows motions to open electronic ballots to be
      made, seconded, discussed and voted on over the TC's mailing list.
   2. The OASIS AMQP TC Chairs are allowed to hold electronic ballots
      via the TC's mailing list or via the TC's electronic balloting

Such a standing rule would allow us to make continued progress
in-between regularly scheduled TC meetings and avoid having to wait
until a regularly scheduled TC meeting to make decisions.

Please let me know if you have questions or comments.

Sounds reasonable to me as long as there is a fixed minimum time between the announcement of an electronic vote and its completion.
