[OpenID board] Spec Process Improvement Motions for Membership Vote

Not following you David.  I thought your recommendation was that the exact wording had to be done before beginning the 21 day notification, so that was what I was asking Nat to provide when ready.  I'm also working with Refresh Media to see if we have an official mailing list for all members we can use per the email from Mike Jones below.  I'm sure Nat would love to work with you for what goes on the OIDF homepage, Nat?  Just trying to keep this process moving per section 3.4 and the dialog below.

Cheers,

Brian

I take it that you're ignoring what I said and not even acknowledging it with a direct response?

As to emailing the members, we need to email legal contacts as well if the members provided them which I'm unsure how the membership tool currently captures.  We do however have legal contacts for many of the companies that signed contribution agreements for working groups which the ones I know of can be found in http://openid.net/ipr/Non-Assertion-Agreement/executed/.

I'm also happy to help draft/edit this blog post given that it is valuable to tie into a larger narrative about how the IPR work we did has since influenced other communities in a major way.

Nat, please let me know when you have the wording completed so we can post on the OIDF homepage and send out an email to all OIDF members for the notification period before the vote.

I believe that Mike was objecting to starting the 21 day clock without actual text changes in the document.  I would advise that this work be delegated to the IPR Committee (if we even still have one) and for them to come back to the board once there is actual blessed text to review.

I still believe that given a 21 day review period coupled with the high degree of notifications and voting required to change the IPR Policy and Process that taking an extra few days to round up any other changes is truly the best path forward.  We know this Process is broken as we've tried to use it a few times and we have groups like "Step2" creating new work outside of the OpenID Foundation because our Process is too complex and difficult to navigate.  Let's fix that instead of trying to ignore the entire set of problems for expediency especially when the Specs Council is now actually starting to work again.

Sorry if I wasn't clear, I only meant to start the 21 day clock for the 4 spec process improvement motions that Nat made that have already been approved by the board.  The exact wording for those motions are the same as they word for the board votes.

Yes, I am opposed.   The notification must include the precise proposed text changes to the IPR documents, preferably as tracked changes to the approved originals, so the lawyers know exactly what changes are being considered to our IPR policy and process.  Until those precise changes are drafted and available, we can not start the 21-day legal review process.

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,

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.

Given that there are some other things we'd like to amend to the IPR Process, should we try to capture the entire list of changes we wish to make so we only need to do this once?

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?
