Subject: DocBook TC IPR Transition Ballot

To: Those OASIS member voting representatives and individual members who are voting "TC Qualified Members" for the
DocBook TC
   As you probably know, OASIS adopted revisions to our IPR Policy effective on 15 April 2005.[1] TCs formed before that
date continue to operate under the old ("legacy") policy. However, they may convert to the new policy by making a
"transition" under the terms of the OASIS IPR Transition Policy [2], by the specific voting procedure described in the
transition policy.
   The OASIS DocBook TC has notified OASIS staff that it successfully conducted a Transition Request vote under the IPR
Transition Policy, to select the "RF on Limited Terms" IPR Mode. Accordingly, I am opening a Transition Approval Ballot,
in which the primary representatives of all voting members of the committee may cast a ballot. A list of the current TC
voting members, as of the date of the Transition Request, is attached. In this ballot, which will run for 14 days, the
TC Qualified Members [3] each may cast only a single vote. The ballot will allow for YES, NO, or ABSTAIN votes. Approval
of a Transition Approval Ballot requires:
   (i) a minimum of 50% of all TC Qualified Members to vote,
   (ii) no NO votes cast, and
   (iii) one or more YES votes.
   The ballot has opened and can be seen at [4]. Please note, for organizational members, it is the primary OASIS
representative who votes, so if you are not a TC member, you may wish to consult your organization's active TC members
regarding this vote.
   We will notify the DocBook TC list and the voting "TC Qualified Members" of the results.
