Subject: [openc2] Standing Rules of the OpenC2 Technical Committee
From: "Brule, Joseph M" <email@example.com
Date: Wed, June 14, 2017 1:41 pm
Recall that we had our kickoff on June 7, 2017 and at that time we adopted a
standing rule (rule 2) with unanimous consent. It is logical to have a rule
(rule 1) regarding the standing rules. I also included a standing rule
regarding agenda items (rule 3)
Please consider this wording. If there are no objections to the wording, I
will ask the Executive Secretary to post rule 2 on the OpenC2 TC homepage.
If there are no objections to the wording of rule 1 or rule 3 I will set up
Thank you and please advise,

2. Prior to consideration, the chair will call for objections.
3. Any member present may object. An objection must include a brief reason
for the objection.
4. Any other member present may support one or more objections
5. If a threshold of 25% or more of the members present object, then the
committee will take it as sufficient cause to send the artifact back to the
subcommittee for further deliberation.
6. If the threshold is not met then a motion to consider the artifact may
7. If the artifact is called to question, the voting members present may
accept, reject or send the artifact back to the subcommittee for further
