Subject: Re: [members] 15-day Public Review for Virtual I/O Device (#VIRTIO) V1.0 - ends July 28th

A Special Majority Vote must be run as an online ballot so no problem there. 

If you are going to approve the CS with non-material changes, then you'll want to follow these steps: 

1. Keep a list of the changes that are made. The TC Process requires that you provide a summary of the changes along with the working draft. The easiest way to do that is to provide a red-lined comparison document but a list of changes is ok as well. But it must be provided as a separate document. 

2. Load the record of the changes into Kavi and then include the link to it in your motion to request the Special Majority Ballot.

3. use motion language like this to request the Special Majority Vote: "I move that the TC request TC Administration initiate a Special Majority Vote to approve  <specification name and version #> contained in <URL for the revised working draft> as a Committee Specification? The TC affirms that changes have been made since the last public review. The changes made are documented in <URL for the summary of changes>. The TC judges these changes to be Non-Material in accordance with the definition in the OASIS TC Process (http://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/tc-process#dNonmaterialChange)."

4. Then just send me the ticket for the SMV at https://www.oasis-open.org/resources/tc-admin-requests/committee-specification-ballot-request 

I'll take care of it from there. 

Let me know if you have any questions on this...

Hello, Chet,
Policy guidelines state:

        The approval of a Committee Specification shall require a Special
        Majority Vote. The TC Chair shall notify the TC Administrator that the
        TC has resolved to request a Special Majority Vote for the advancement
        of the draft as a Committee Specification and provide to the TC
        Administrator the URI for the meeting minutes which record the TC's
        resolution, including the location of the editable versions of the files
        and any other ballot details (for example, Designated Cross-Reference
        Change motions).

There are some comments and non material changes since the last drafts,
so we would like to do the special majority vote soon, but several members
of the TC can't participate in phone meetings in the near term.  Is it
possible to execute this vote by an online ballot instead
of a meeting?
