In https://cabforum.org/pipermail/public/2016-April/007459.html, Jeremy asked for endorsers and stated that review would start 29 April 2016 at 17:40 UTC.
In https://cabforum.org/pipermail/public/2016-April/007484.html, on 28 April 2016 at 15:14 UTC, Trustwave endorsed.
In https://cabforum.org/pipermail/public/2016-April/007500.html, on 29 April 2016 at 10:31 UTC, GlobalSign endorsed.
That lead me to believe that the ballot as written was endorsed and under review the review period. The ballot text says "Unless the motion is withdrawn during the review period, the voting period will start immediately thereafter and will close at 2200 UTC on 13 May 2016."
I realize that there is lots of discussion, but I was under the impression that the motion either needs to be withdrawn or move to a vote at this point.
