I think it would be helpful also to define what rights and privileges a new proposed category of membership has. For example, do they get wiki access? posting privs to the public/mgmt. lists?

More updates have been added to the draft version 2.5 <https://url.avanan.click/v2/___https:/github.com/cabforum/forum/pull/32/files___.YXAzOmRpZ2ljZXJ0OmE6bzo1OGE2MWYyNjEwOTk2MmVjN2U5MTA4ZDRmMTExZDQ1ZDo2OmRhMDU6ZGMyZDdmMGVjZjVjYzY3NTdhMThjNWNmMDZhZGNiNGU4MDhlMTAyZjg1ZTA5MTRjNDA1NDJhZTJhZmJlZDI4ODpoOkY>  of the Bylaws. Here is a list of the remaining Bylaws issues <https://url.avanan.click/v2/___https:/docs.google.com/document/d/1EtrIy3F5cPge0_M-C8J6fe72KcVI8H5Q_2S6S31ynU0/edit?usp=sharing___.YXAzOmRpZ2ljZXJ0OmE6bzo1OGE2MWYyNjEwOTk2MmVjN2U5MTA4ZDRmMTExZDQ1ZDo2OmViODU6YzBhNzQ1YmMwODI2MWJkNjQ4MDdhYjU1NTRmYWIyMWI3NDAxYWRhNzk2ZWU1YTY3N2RkYmY2MWEwOGU3ZDhlODpoOkY>  to be addressed:

1.	Election issues
2.	Who must sign the IPR Agreement (when we have cases with a separate "CA Owner" and "CA Operator")
3.	Minimum days for review of draft minutes before approval for Teleconferences and F2F meetings
4.	Review and alignment of WG Charters
5.	Define specific release cycles for Guidelines

I believe we must address at least the election issues before going to ballot. In the meantime, I will also try to propose some language for items 2 and 3. Hopefully we can prepare a ballot by the end of April. Please let me know if any of you can endorse the changes proposed so far.

Items 4 and 5 need significant time and effort. I'm not sure we will have time to work on those items before the upcoming F2F but I would like to ask if there are any volunteers that can assist with proposing draft language, possibly using a separate GitHub branch.


Best regards,

We will go over these and other changes introduced by Tim about the elections, on Tuesday at the F2F#58.

In the meantime, please take a look and share any feedback.
