I'm told that the above is incorrect, with regards to OASIS TC formation procedure.  No OASIS membership vote is required to approve a new TC charter.  OASIS staff will still need to vet it for compliance with OASIS rules.  Then the proposed charter will be made available for OASIS membership to comment on for a period of time, and the proposer group will need to resolve any OASIS member comments received before the Call for Participation and the first TC meeting occurs.
