Subject: [tc-announce] CPPA voting - negative votes


This is to officially inform you that voting to approve the ebXML CPPA 
Committee Specification as an OASIS Standard has ended, and that 
sufficient affirmative votes have been received to approve the spec. 
However, there were also two negative votes, with comments.


There are not sufficient negative votes to turn down the approval, but 
because there are negative votes the TC must now make a decision on what 
to do next.

For the process for handling these negative votes see the fourth
paragraph of Section 2 of the Process at
http://oasis-open.org/committees/process_aug2001.shtml#sec2 (note that
the CPPA spec was submitted under the 2001 version of the Process, not 
the new Sept 2002 version).

"However, if negative votes amounting to less than 10 percent of the
voting membership have been cast, the negative votes and accompanying
comments, if any, shall be forwarded to the originating TC for
consideration. After notification of the results, the TC shall have 30
days to take one of the following actions by resolution: (x) request
OASIS to approve the specification as submitted despite the negative
votes, or (y) withdraw the submission entirely, or (z) submit an amended
specification, in which case the amended submission shall be considered
as if it were a new submission, except that information regarding
previous votes and any disposition of comments received in previous
votes shall accompany the amended submission."

The TC now has 30 days to notify OASIS what you would like to do: 
request that the spec be approved despite the negative votes, withdraw 
the spec, or withdraw it and submit a new spec later.

I will await your decision.
