a "yes" vote by two-thirds of Certificate Issuer votes and 50%-plus-one
Certificate Consumer votes for approval.  Votes to abstain are not counted
for this purpose.  This requirement was met for both Certificate Issuers and
Certificate Consumers.
at least one Certificate Issuer and one Certificate Consumer Member must
vote in favor of a ballot for the ballot to be adopted. This requirement was

than half of the number of currently active Members has participated". Votes
to abstain are counted in determining a quorum.  Half of currently active
Members as of the start of voting was 9, so quorum was 10 votes - quorum was
