Given that we need a 21 day notification for a membership vote, I'd suggest we start that official notification now.  Anyone opposed to that?

Nat, can you create the posting for the home page of the OIDF website, which is also required?

Cheers,

Brian

Hmmm. While this option sounds attractive, we might want to take two phased approach.
I have just made motions for the urgent things. If we start requirement gathering at this stage, it will delay these changes.

So, my proposal is to do what the board vote approved in parallel to the longer term ammendment with requirement gatherings. (BTW, there are bunch of things that I want to list under this mid-term project.)

I will draft the ammendment to the Process document this weekend.

One of the motion is unrelated to the Process document, but to assign the committee liaison the power to take an initiative to facilitate and advance the specs process. i.e., David is now officially empowered to chase down the specs council members as well as to help out the proposers so that the process goes as quick as it can.

I have not seen much progress on OpenID+OAuth hybrid and CX specs council process. I hope this will improve the situation.

OK thanks Mike.  Do we have a "members" email address to start the membership notification period?

We can not amend the process doc without a membership vote, and the following criteria being met, as per section 3.4 of the process:

*          21 day notice period
*          Multiple electronic notice required (if the OIDF member has provided multiple addresses), including to a "legal contact," if provided
*          Prominent posting (at least 21 days in advance of the beginning of the voting period) on homepage of OIDF website
*          7 day voting period after end of notice period (if vote is not taken at a properly-noticed meeting)
*          OIDF members may designate a proxy from the member's registered OpenID identifier specifying the designated proxy's OpenID identifier
*          Any approved change is prospective only
*          Approval of a change requires either of the following:
Approval Option 1
o    Quorum of greater of 60% of OIDF membership or 30 OIDF members (no bypass option) and
o    Supermajority vote of those constituting a quorum, plus a majority concurrence by the OIDF Board
Approval Option 2
o    Quorum of greater of 30% of OIDF membership or 30 OIDF members (no bypass option) and
o    Majority vote of those constituting a quorum, plus a supermajority concurrence by the entire OIDF Board (where "absents" and "abstains" count as "no" votes)
Any change to the IPR Policy or Processes will not be effective until 21 days after approval, during which time then-current Contributors may withdraw in accordance with the IPR Policy or Processes as they existed prior to the change

Nat could produce an updated draft of the doc (which should have tracked changes on relative to the approved version) for legal membership review prior to the vote, but none of this can go into effect until the membership vote has occurred and met the criteria above.

                                                                -- Mike

Thanks to everyone for your timely voting.  While the polls are still open, all 4 of the motions made by Nat have passed.  Nat can you take care of modifying the OpenID process document?

Cheers,

Brian
