Hello Ben,

At F2F58 
had a discussion about the lessons learned from ballot SC60 
During that meeting, a proposal was made that seems to fix the ambiguity 
of the current Bylaws.

In line 93 of the proposed ballot, it says:

> /**(d)** There is a mandatory six-month probationary period during 
> which any representative of an Applicant must attend at least 30% of 
> all SCWG teleconferences (not counting subcommittee meetings) and at 
> least one SCWG face-to-face meeting (either physically or virtually). 
> After successful completion of the mandatory probationary period and 
> meeting all requirements of section 3(a) or 3(b), an Applicant may 
> become a Voting Member, if the SCWG determines by consensus among the 
> Members during a Meeting or Teleconference, or upon the request of any 
> Member, by a Ballot among the Members, that the Applicant meets the 
> requirements of section 3(a) or 3(b). Acceptance by consensus shall be 
> determined, or a Ballot of the Members shall be held, as soon as the 
> Applicant indicates that it has presented all information required and 
> has responded to all follow-up questions from the SCWG and the 
> Applicant has complied with the requirements of Section 5.5 of the 
> CA/Browser Forum Bylaws./

Instead of:

/"or upon the request of any Member, by a Ballot among the Members, by a 
Ballot among the Members, that the Applicant meets the requirements of 
section 3(a) or 3(b)" /

please update to:

/"or upon the request of any Member that challenges the Applicant's 
adherence to all of the requirements of section 3(a) or 3(b), by a 
Ballot among the Members."/

I read the rest of the proposed changes and they look good. If you are 
ok with the change above, HARICA would be happy to endorse the ballot.

Best regards,
