The number of votes required is determined at the time the ballot is created
(since the number of organizational members changes from month-to-month.) Or,
you could always check the ballot notice for the ballot that's currently out for
vote in tc-announce archives ;)

Thanks Will. That's very good to know. I've sent to Mary so that if 51 is not
the number of YES votes that we need then she can correct. John's right I think..we ned to get the big guys in early. John, do you know
someone who might be willing to approach Tony or someone who knows the MS voting

By my count, there are 334 OASIS members listed between the pages:
We need 15% "yes" votes, which would be 51. Though I'm not 100% sure if I'm
counting the OASIS Organizational members correctly.

The problem will be if there are no votes, it doesn't take many to kill it. I doubt there will be any organized opposition this time.
Getting some of the big guys in early will be important.
MS will probably abstain because of their policy of not voting on specs that
they are not participating in. We can ask Tony if they will make an exception
though he is not the voting member.

What does everyone think of an organized voting/socialization campaign for this
vote? By that I mean we... 1) Collectively determine which reps we know and list them, then determine who
will approach each in a 1-1 manner (face2face, phone, email) 2) Track responses we get from 1on1s, including responses on whether they would
be able to do a yes vote in August and detailed feedback on the spec 3) When we get some # of votes needed (min + ?) then we submit 4) If necessary revise and regen a new community draft based on comments
You know me..I can't resist saying that an OASIS Tool to do the above would be
very nice..maybe vote.oasis-open.org (and wrap voting on specs in their as
well). I know there's not enough cycles, but food for thought.
In theory, yes, I _think_ we have time to request an OASIS Standard vote before
July 15. However, that would place the actual vote in August. And the actual
voting itself always takes place the last two weeks of the month.
So a very real question is: do we want to try for an OASIS Standard vote in
August, when more than half the members are on vacation? Or should we wait for
Mary: the TC could really use your input on this.

we now have the required 2/3 'yes' votes for Committee Specification. Assuming

So time to start planning for the next steps...
- once the vote is final, i'll generate the new CS version of the spec, and get
that to Mary to be published.
- we need three "statements of use". Mary, do you have a few examples we can
reference for what those should look like? Also, do they need to come from the
Organizational Member's primary contact, or can it be anyone within the
- do we know that we have three organizations that can provide Statements of
Use? Looking at the TC Process, it appears that they must come form
"Organizational Members", which means Yahoo! will not be able to count as one of
the three. Google certainly can, and I believe George indicated that AOL would
likely be able to. Who will be the third? Is XDI currently publishing or
Once this current CS vote is closed and we have the three statements of use in
hand, we must have one final vote to request that XRD be submitted for an
OASIS Standard vote. That must commence before the 15th of the month. If we
move quickly, we can do that by July 15th, otherwise we can do it next month.
(and even though we do have the required votes for CS, I'd like to have as near
a unanimous decision as possible.... please go vote if you haven't
