Subject: Is it? RE: [chairs] OASIS Organizational Voting is Somewhat Absurd?

     This is an interesting thread.  It might be more accessible to members 
-- and also better would serve our hope to avoid long threads on this 
mandated list -- if it were moved to the general membership discussion list 
at oasis-member-discuss@lists.oasis-open.org.
     We do want to keep traffic on this particular list low-overhead, where 
possible, because the only way off this list is to stop being a TC chair.
     On the merits, I do have some thoughts, but will put them over in the 
anticipated oasis-member-discuss thread.
    Regards  Jamie
