The Forum requests the list manager to establish a new Forum mail list called firstname.lastname@example.org. Current subscribers to the “management” mail list should be subscribed to the email@example.com list with no action required on their part. Forum members (both voting and observing) should be allowed to post to the firstname.lastname@example.org list. Anyone else should be allowed to subscribe and receive posted messages. But, until a mechanism for obtaining their agreement to the IPR policy has been implemented, they should not be allowed to post messages to the email@example.com list.
The Forum requests the Webmaster to post instructions for subscribing to the firstname.lastname@example.org list on the Forum Web site (cabforum.org).
The ballot review period comes into effect at 21:00 UTC on April 27, 2012 and will close at 21:00 UTC on May 4, 2012. Unless the motion is withdrawn during the review period, the voting period will start immediately thereafter and will close at 21:00 UTC on May 11, 2012. Votes must be cast by “reply all” to this email.
A vote in favor of the motion must indicate a clear ‘yes’ in the response. A vote against must indicate a clear ‘no’ in the response. A vote to abstain must indicate a clear ‘abstain’ in the response. Unclear responses will not be counted. The latest vote received from any representative of a voting member before the close of the voting period will be counted.
