Subject: [cabfpub] Voting Begins for ballot Forum-12 - Update CA/B Forum

The following motion has been proposed by Dimitris Zacharopoulos of HARICA
and endorsed by Mike Reilly of Microsoft and Tim Hollebeek of Digicert. 

Purpose of Ballot: 

The Forum has identified and discussed a number of improvements to be made
to the current version of the Bylaws to improve clarity and allow the Forum
to function more effectively. Most of these changes are described in the
"Issues with Bylaws to be addressed
ynU0> " document. 

Here is a list of major changes: 

1.	Clarified the use of the term "Member" so it is clear when we
discuss about all Forum Members (which includes Associate Members and
Interested Parties), and when we discuss about the "Voting Members". Adding
the word "Voting" in front of the word "Member" removes this ambiguity.
Also, the term "Members" or "Forum Members" is now the union of "Voting
Members", "Associate Members" and "Interested Parties".

2.	Added the term "Voting Representative" which is designated by each
Member. Only votes submitted by Voting Representatives will be considered.

3.	Replaced "Forum wiki" with the properly defined term "Member Web

4.	Removed references for Webmaster in the definition of "Public Web
Site" since it is repeated in section 5.2.

5.	Added the Photography Policy in Exhibit D.

6.	Clarify 4.1 (2) that Forum Members nominate representatives 

7.	Allow Informative Changes to Guidelines

8.	In 5.3.1 require that a Certificate Issuer is trusted in the
"latest" software produced by a Certificate Consumer

9.	In 4.1 the Chair is eligible to be elected as Chair after having
vacated the position as Chair for at least one (1) term, instead of two (2)


Amendment to the Bylaws: Replace the entire text of the Bylaws of the
CA/Browser Forum with the attached version (CA-Browser Forum Bylaws

NOTE: There are three redline versions: 

1.	PDF (attached as "CA-Browser Forum Bylaws v2.3-redline.pdf")

2.	DOCX (attached as "CA-Browser Forum Bylaws v2.3-redline.docx")
