Subject: RE: [xri] IMPORTANT: New Ballot

Just to further clarify Gabe's note about ballots and TC membership: by
OASIS's recent TC process revisions, it is now required that all voting
members of a TC return 2 out of any 3 consecutive ballots for any
official online TC vote. Failure by a voting member to return any 2 out
of 3 consecutive ballots (absent special extenuating circumstances) will
result in the voting member reverting to Observer "non-voting" status.
Since the XRI TC has elected to conduct our official business online
(vs. telecons or in-person meetings), this is the primary mechanism by
which voting membership in the XRI TC is maintained.
Because we are coming up on a particular important vote - the XRI 1.0
Committee Draft Specification - we will be conducting at least three
votes over the next three weeks both to decide the remaining key issues
and to confirm the active voting members of the TC prior to the
Committee Draft Spec vote. The ballot on the resolution simplification
proposal is the first of those votes.
So, all current voting members who wish to remain active, please take
the 60 seconds it requires to submit your vote (yes, no, or other) on
each of these ballots.

Subject: [xri] IMPORTANT: New Ballot
Those of you who are official XRI TC voting members should be getting a
notice about a new Ballot that I've created on the TC. This ballot is on
the question of whether or not to adopt the simplified resolution
Voting on this ballot is important for 2 reasons: 1) The proposal I made
was relatively large, and I'm hoping to call attention to the fact that
its something that may affect your attitude towards XRI on a macro level
and 2) we need to start using ballots to ensure membership in the TC is
well-defined (according to new Oasis membership rules). 
So, everyone who wishes to continue being a member of the TC MUST vote
on this ballot in the next 7 days. There is an option to abstain and an
"other" option. You have no excuse!!! (Except not getting this email
until too late, but we'll deal with that if it becomes an issue). 
<http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/xri/ballot.php?id=202> & 
If you are unable to vote and believe you should be a voting member of
the TC, please let me know. We will be using these upcoming votes to
clean up the membership status of the folks subscribed to the TC. We
won't kick anyone off the email list, but rather want to make sure when
it comes to important votes that we are clear about who is officially a
voting member.
