Subject: Re: [docbook-tc] It looks like DocBook V4.5 will pass!
Mary, I agree with Jirka and Norm on this 100%. If the vote didn't actually make it in time because of this (I'm out of the country and don't have very good access, so I can't tell if we got that last vote or not), I think you have no option except to extend the voting period and send out a note explaining the situation. BTW, any possibility of giving an individual member .05 of a vote:-). I think I pay at least that percentage of the smaller corporate types for my membership. If so, count me as a yes!
