Subject: WSDM Vote closes, Quorum Needed on March 3 call

Hi Folks,

Ta Da!
WSDM Vote was 67 Yes, 7 No.  So we have enough votes to pass to OASIS standard. (Good job getting out the vote!)

The process now is that the TC must vote whether to ask for Standards Approval despite the 'No' votes, withdraw the submission, or resubmit an amended specification into the process again.  (see process at end of this note).  

The No votes were all in the same vein as the Oracle posting. See http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/voting/ballot.php?id=692&vr=1  for details

Agenda for the call this week, we MUST have Quorum:
1. Roll
2. Discussion of votes and comments
3. Decision on how to proceed with WSDM 1.0

Talk to you ALL on Thursday

If at the end of the voting period at least 15 percent of the voting membership has voted to approve the proposed standard, then if no votes have been cast to disapprove the proposed standard, it shall become an OASIS Standard immediately following the end of the voting period. However, if negative votes amounting to less than 15 percent of the voting membership have been cast, the TC will be notified of the negative votes, after which the TC shall have 30 days to take one of the following actions by resolution: (a) request OASIS TC Administration to approve the specification as submitted despite the negative votes; (b) withdraw the submission entirely; or (c) 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.
