     In lieu of a TC member acting as chair, Karl has asked me to serve as 
interim chair -- extremely "interim", merely to facilitate your 
election.  Thank you to Tyky for stepping up.

     I plan to set up the ballot shortly.  OASIS rules generally give TCs 
some power over the manner of balloting.  So let me make the following 
suggestions.  Would anyone with comments or objections please post them 
back to this list.  If I hear none, I will assume this method is acceptable 
to all and will implement them this Friday 2 May Pacific (US) time.

Proposed election method:
     1.  I will post a separate XCBF list message later today, proposing to 
close nominations for chair 24 hours later (that is, tomorrow, 1 May, at 
close of business Pacific time).  This will allow the inclusion of any 
other eligible party who may be nominated.
     2.   I propose to use the TC's automated database ballot, which this 
TC has used before.
     3.   I suggest we run the ballot for one week (7 days), starting 2 
May.  OASIS has a 5 day ballot minimum.

     Anyone with questions about procedures should feel free to call or 
write. Also, please note, you might find useful the plain-English set of TC 
guidelines we have posted at
to explain and complement the normative rules posted at

Best regards
Jamie Clark
