Subject: RE: [regrep] We had more business to conduct this morning!
More administration, from the voting rules (<http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/process.php#2.13>): ------------------------------------------- "Electronic Voting: TCs may conduct electronic ballots, either by using the TC's general mail list or the publicly archived electronic voting functionality provided by OASIS. The minimum period allowed for electronic voting shall be seven calendar days; the TC may specify a longer voting period for a particular electronic ballot. Any Specification Ballot conducted as an electronic ballot must permit each voter to choose "yes", "no" or "abstain." 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." --------------------------------------------------- So, even if we conduct the vote via e-mail, the minimum period allowed is 7 calendar days. We still need the electronic motion, second and discussion.... Then I can send out electronic ballots, or use Kavi ballots (either one has to be set for 7 calendar days). Sorry this is a bit confusing and detailed. These things were put into place to help us make the best specs and have a totally open process.

I thought we had voted to conducted ballots via email for the TC. Can we do that instead of KAVI? If so I vote Yes on all 4 ballots. 1. I agree that the RIM errata do not constitute a substantive change 2. I agree that the RS errata do not constitute a substantive change 3. I agree that the RIM errata be submitted for a 15-day public review 4. I agree that the RS errata be submitted for a 15-day public review Thank you. -- Regards, Farrukh Web: http://www.wellfleetsoftware.com
