[OpenID board] Reducing the Vote Notification Period for New Working Groups

After the Specs Council has recommended a working group proposal, we  
send a message to the specs at openid.net mailing list stating that we  
have done so and announcing that there will be a Membership vote  
fifteen days in the future.  I would like to see us reduce this  
notification period – the Membership voting period is seven days – and  
would recommend a three day notification period excluding weekends and  
holidays.  This would reduce the current process from taking a maximum  
of 29 days to a maximum of 25 days which still seems very lengthy.  I  
do wonder about the need of the notification period considering that  
the voting period is seven days and every member receives an email  
when the vote opens.
