Subject: [cabfpub] Ballot 98 - Public Voting

The CAB Forum wishes to require that the votes of Members on CAB Forum ballots be public information. For avoidance of doubt, a consequence of this change is that the voting information for ballots will be publicly posted.

Gervase Markham made the following motion, and Jeremy Rowley and Kirk Hall endorsed it:

... Motion Begins ...

Effective immediately, the CAB Forum Bylaws are updated as follows:

... Erratum Begins ...

* Delete bullet b) of section 5.1 ("Member Mail List and Member Web
  Site") in its entirety, and reletter the following sections.

* Update bullet c) of section 5.2 ("Public Mail List and Public Web
  Site") to read:

    "Messages formally proposing a Forum ballot (including ballots to
    establish, modify, or terminate Working Groups), individual votes,
    vote and quorum counts, and messages announcing ballot outcomes and
    voting breakdowns."

... Erratum ends ...

The review period for this ballot shall commence at 21:00 UTC on 8 February 2013 and will close at 21:00 UTC on 15 February 2013. Unless the motion is withdrawn during the review period, the voting period will start immediately thereafter and will close at 21:00 UTC on 22 February 2013. Votes must be cast by posting an on-list reply to this thread.

... Motions ends ...

A vote in favor of the motion must indicate a clear 'yes' in the response.

A vote against must indicate a clear 'no' in the response. A vote to abstain must indicate a clear 'abstain' in the response. Unclear responses will not be counted. The latest vote received from any representative of a voting member before the close of the voting period will be counted.

Voting members are listed here: http://www.cabforum.org/forum.html

In order for the motion to be adopted, two thirds or more of the votes cast by members in the CA category and one half or more of the votes cast by members in the browser category must be in favor. Also, at least sevent members must participate in the ballot, either by voting in favor, voting against or abstaining.
