I think this can be added to the end of a Maintenance Guideline ballot (for new Guidelines, the review period will be changed to 60 days).

Comments?  Edits?


The procedure for this Maintenance Guideline ballot is as follows:

Start time (00:00 UTC)

End time (00:00 UTC)

Discussion (7 days)

Straw ballot (7 days).  If positive, proceed to:

Review Period (Chair to send Review Notice) (30 days).  If no Exclusion Notices filed, proceed to:

Vote for approval (7 days)

Votes must be cast by posting an on-list reply to this thread on the Public list.

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: https://cabforum.org/members/
In order for the motion to be adopted, two thirds or more of the votes cast by members in the CA category and greater than 50% of the votes cast by members in the browser category must be in favor. Quorum is currently nine (9) members- at least nine members must participate in the ballot, either by voting in favor, voting against, or abstaining.
