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


This is to officially inform you that voting to approve the XACML
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 Section 2 of the 
OASIS TC Process at

"If at the end of the voting period at least 10 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 10 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."

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.
