One question on interpretation of Ballot 82 - it would suspend the IPR until a Forum governance vote "concludes in the approval of a new Guideline for organization governance or other form of organization governance reform agreement."
One option being voted on is "No change". In addition, as I understand it, if a new form of governance is chosen, it will not take effect unless it is adopted by the Forum in a subsequent vote - which may not happen.
Question: Under Ballot 82, when would IPR Policy suspension end if the Forum does NOT adopt "a new Guideline for organization governance," but continues with the current form of governance?
