Bylaw 2.3(f) requires:

  * 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 also met_.

Under Bylaw 2.3(g), "aballot result will be considered valid only when 
more 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 *10*, so 
quorum was *11 votes *– _quorum was met_.
