To: Those OASIS member voting representatives and individual members who are voting "TC Qualified Members" for the OASIS LegalXML eNotarization TC
As you probably know, OASIS adopted revisions to our IPR Policy effective on 15 April 2005. TCs formed before that date continue to operate under the old ("legacy") policy. However, they may convert to the new policy by making a "transition" under the terms of the OASIS IPR Transition Policy , by the specific voting procedure described in the transition policy.
The OASIS LegalXML eNotarization TC has notified OASIS staff that it successfully conducted a Transition Request vote under the IPR Transition Policy, to select the "RF on Limited Terms" IPR Mode. Accordingly, I am opening a Transition Approval Ballot, in which the primary representatives of all voting members of the committee may cast a ballot. A list of the current TC voting members, as of the date of the Transition Request, is attached. In this ballot, which will run for 14 days, the TC Qualified Members  each may cast only a single vote. The ballot will allow for YES, NO, or ABSTAIN votes. Approval of a Transition Approval Ballot requires: (i) a minimum of 50% of all TC Qualified Members to vote, (ii) no NO votes cast, and (iii) one or more YES votes.
The ballot will open at 8amET on 28 August 2006 and can be seen at . Please note, for organizational members, it is the primary OASIS representative who votes, so if you are not a TC member, you may wish to consult your organization's active TC members regarding this vote.
We will notify the LegalXML eNotarization TC list and the voting "TC Qualified Members" of the results.
