Subject: Re: Clarification about who votes on a ballot for OASIS Standard approval

Hi Kris,

  It's actually neither ;)  Each organizational member gets 1 vote. That vote may be cast by anyone listed as either primary or alternate. I believe that if both a primary and alternate each cast a vote, the primary's vote takes precedence; otherwise I believe it's first-in that counts. The roster is updated on the 1st of each month; if you download it today it's likely that there will be a handful of new members that won't be listed.

  If you view an actual ballot (http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/voting/ballot.php?id=1955 in progress) you'll see only the primaries listed, unless an alternate has cast a vote. Yet when you look at the roster page you'll see everyone who could possibly cast a vote for a company.

  When I create the ballot on the 16th I determine exactly how many 'yes' votes are needed to pass and include this in the message to members; Kavi rounds up, and since we can't have a fraction of a voter, its 15% is different from mine.

Hi, Mary.

Thanks for pointing out the Kavi group “OASIS organizational voting”. Can you clarify for me whether all members of this group (currently 427 in number) will be voting on DITA 1.2 or whether it is only the individuals listed as “primary” (currently 327 in number)?

TC members, you can access the Kavi group at http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/voting/members/roster.php and download it as an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file.
