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


Technically, I think a better way to look at my motion was as one to amend
your motion to change the Public Review duration from 60 days to 90 days. 

Since you (the mover) did not accept my amendment, I withdraw the motion to
amend the Public Review duration.  

I think that is tidier.  

I appreciate that an extension of an in-progress Public Review period is
permissible, and we can take that up with a new motion if and when the need

 - Dennis

PS: I think, technically, it is not possible to table a motion to amend
another motion.  The motion to amend must be dispensed with first.  In any
case, I withdraw the motion and will be more precise in the language I use
in future motions on the list.

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

[ ... ]

Dennis further made a motion to extend the public review period to 90
days. This motion has been seconded. This means that we not only have to
vote regarding a CD and a public review, but also about the duration of 
the public review (60 or 90 days).

To consider that motion on the hand, and to provide the TC with the
flexibility to possibly revise the draft after 60 days review or to
conduct a combined review of all three parts after 60 days on the other
hand, Rob has made the following proposal: We start with a 60 day public 
review, but possibly vote for extending the review by 30 days towards 
the end of the review. He has further confirmed with the OASIS TC 
administration that this is possible.

Essentially, this means that the requested ballot regarding extending 
the public review to 90 days would be deferred towards the end the 
public review if it is not withdrawn or replaced by other motions. If we 
include the option to run a ballot regarding extending the public review 
any time between now and the end of the public review, we actually 
consider both motions that have been seconded, but also Rob's proposal.
