Subject: RE: [office] ODF 1.2 Part 1 Public Review Ballot Motion

I don't understand how we actually deliberate on and vote on a motion that
is made on the list.  I don't think I have ever encountered this case in

So, as a point of procedure, I request that an e-Vote be made with the
motion with any modifications accepted by the mover (Michael) and a seconder
(Rob Weir?).

Also, isn't there some sort of majority and roll-call vote required to go to
public review (and even cd)?  I assume that an e-ballot would provide for
that.  Not sure how we would do so on the list.

I request that the motion be subdivided so that the acceptance as committee
draft is resolved before acceptance for public review.

I request that the public review be for 90 days for reasons that I have
already given concerning year-end holidays and the significance and
extensiveness of the material involved in this review.

Michael made a motion on the list.  I recommended a change and said I 
would support the motion as amended, and Michael agreed to the change. If 
the motion bears a resemblance to a motion made in a previous meeting, 
that is immaterial.   A meeting motion would is approved or not in a 
meeting, and a motion made on the list is approved or not on the list.  I 
don't think they necessarily carry over.

Michael made as single motion.  So, as given it is all-or-nothing. 
However, it is valid to ask the motion to be divided into separate 
questions, and if there is consensus to do so that is what we would do. 
But I don't think you would want three separate questions, since the 
format and external stakeholders questions are required for the public 
review ballot and should not be split out.  So at most you could have a CD 
ballot, and a PRD ballot contingent on the CD ballot passing.
