>   * To manage the production and versioning of guidelines and other

>   * To perform other activities ancillary to the primary activities

> subcommittees or working groups for further consideration.
> *Participation*- Any member of the CAB Forum is eligible and may 
> declare their participation in the Forum Infrastructure Subcommittee 
> by requesting to be added to the mailing list.
> *Chair*- Jos Purvis shall be the initial Chair of the Forum 
> Infrastructure Subcommittee. The Chair shall not have a fixed term, 
> but the Subcommittee may change its Chair from time to time by 
> consensus of the Members participating in the Subcommittee or by 
> voting method chosen by the Members by consensus.
> *Communication*- Subcommittee communications and documents shall be

> accessible, and the Subcommittee shall publish minutes of its meetings 
> to the Forum wiki.
> *Effect of Forum Bylaws Amendment for Subcommittees*- In the event the
