Here are some additional comments on Trend Micro's proposal, with the
aim of refining and clarifying it before the next vote.
Header: "Specific details, bylaws, rules, and intra-member agreements
would be drafted and approved by the Forum later if this governance
proposal is approved." Would it make sense for Trend Micro and others to
start that process now, so we can see what we are voting for with more
Part A, 1: votes and voting results are not specifically mentioned here.
Are they to be included in the public part of the Forum's workings?
Part B, 1: Who draws up the Working Group charter? Is the idea that a
Working Group is created when the Forum votes to approve the charter,
using the normal mechanisms?
Part B, 3: Non-members of the Working Group do not have to agree to the
IPR policy, but may provide comments on proposal drafts. Is that
correct? Is there an issue here?
Part B, 3: If the CAB Forum itself has a meeting, are 'independent
parties' (e.g. those involved in one or more working groups) permitted
to attend the proceedings, perhaps with observer status for those bits
not related to their working group?
Part C, 4: "Consider creation of an Executive Committee..." Can we
either make this part of the proposal, make it not part of the proposal,
or give some details as to how we will decide whether or not we need one?
