Subject: Re: [wsbpel] New BPEL Issue process - please read - will effect yournew issues

I had understood that we only required a super majority of present 
members, not a super majority of the entire group. I believe that 
requiring a super majority of the entire group penalizes those who show 
up for meetings.
