How does this follow?

Section 4.1: "Prior to the approval of a CAB Forum Draft Guideline as a
CAB Forum Final Guideline or Final Maintenance Guideline..."

A Draft Guideline may become either a FG or an FMG. How do you decide
which it becomes?

8.3 f): "'Final Maintenance Guideline' is an errata to or amendment of
an existing CAB Forum Final Guideline."

So if it's an edit to an existing document, the DG is aiming to be an
FMG, otherwise it's aiming to be an FG.

Back to 4.1: "The approval of a CAB Forum Final Maintenance Guideline
shall follow the same process except that the Review Period shall be
thirty (30) days."

If the end result will be an FMG (i.e. an edit) then the review period
is 30 days. Otherwise it's 60.

Why do you say that all Draft Guidelines need 60-day reviews?
