Subject: RE: [odata] Standing rule allowing email motions (to open e-ballots)
Yes, this email was intended to provide the context for the standing rule discussion. The TC discussed this and adopted the standing rule during the morning session. The decision has been documented in the minutes (in the chat room) and will be posted to the TC document repository shortly after the meeting. Thanks.
I support this.

The OASIS Technical Committee process section 2.13  requires motions (to open electronic ballots) to be processed only in Technical Committee (TC) meetings unless the TC adopts a standing rule that allows such motions to be made, seconded, discussed, and voted on over the TC mailing list. The ability to process such motions via email gives greater flexibility in the conduct of TC business and helps avoid unnecessary delays. Hence, I suggest this TC adopt a standing rule to that effect such as described below .
 Excerpt from OASIS TC process section 2.13 https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/tc-process#voting
A motion to open an electronic ballot must be made in a TC meeting unless the TC has adopted a standing rule to allow this motion to be made on the TC's general email list. When such a rule has been adopted, motions made on the mail list must also be seconded and discussed on that list.
