Reverting to using a draft ballot to get things right on the first try,
since I can't make updates once the discussion starts . if a few eagle-eyed
people (Dimitris?  Ryan?) can review this ballot and the attached Bylaw
changes, I'd appreciate it so we can get it up for vote quickly.


Ballot FORUM-4: Fix mistakes made during passage of Governance Reform Ballot


Purpose of Ballot


The Governance Reform ballot (Ballot 206 under the old ballot numbering
scheme) was extremely complicated and took roughly two years to draft.
There were two changes to the Bylaws that the Governance Reform Working
Group intended to be included in the Governance Reform ballot that were
accidentally not included in the final version of the Bylaws attached to
Ballot 206:


1.	The changes to the rules about discussion periods that were approved
in Ballot 216.
2.	Dimitris' fixes for the numbers of the ETSI standards required for
membership, to more closely align with what we require for WebTrust


The attached version of the Bylaws restores the important discussion period
changes that were approved by the members but then accidentally overwritten,
and adopts Dimitris' improvements which were intended by the Governance
Reform Working Group to be in Ballot 206 but were accidentally omitted.


The following motion has been proposed by Tim Hollebeek of DigiCert and
endorsed by Wayne Thayer of Mozilla and Moudrick Dadashov of SSC.




This ballot replaces the "Bylaws of the CA/Browser Forum" version 1.9 with
version 2.0 of those Bylaws, attached to this ballot.




The procedure for approval of this ballot is as follows:
