Some additional fixes have been made to the Bylaws document. Here is the
The changes are:
1. Fixed formatting of "Member" in the definitions section.
2. Changed the list formatting throughout the doc to comply with the quirky
rules of markdown. Lists that used to be lettered are now numbered and vice
3. Addressed side-effects of moving membership criteria out of section 2.1
and into the WG Charters. Here is the redline:
* We still vote in categories at the Forum level, so those category
definitions are needed in the Bylaws. I added language that aligns Forum
membership categories with CWG membership categories.
* Associate Member and Interested Party membership still happens at the
Forum level. Added references to those membership types in section 2.1
This last change is significant, so I will appreciate everyone's review and
comments. I now have two endorsers, so if there are no concerns with these
changes we can begin the discussion period.
