Subject: SIPFORUM WGLC - SIPconnect 1.1 v 14 Ballot and process information
The purpose of a Working Group Last Call is in the style of "speak now or
forever hold your peace" regarding the document under consideration.
This notice serves to open the SIPconnect 1.1 Task Group Last Call period.
The period will close at 2400 UTC on 15 July 2009. The SIPForum's
Recommendation process requires rough consensus of the active participants
in the Task Group.
We consider an active participant to be individuals whom the Task Group Lead
can identify as having contributed substantive comments, text, or analysis
to the Recommendation. To be considered in the consensus determination,
active participants are those who contributed
at least one comment or body text submittal to a pre-last-call draft of the
Recommendation. The Task Group Lead my chose to include recognized subject
matter experts at his/her discretion. The Technical Working Group Chair
arbitrates any disputes over whether an individual is an active participant
Per the SIP Forum Recommendation process, any SIP Forum Participant Member
may participate in the Task Group work, and there is no special dispensation
for Full Member companies with respect to the acceptance or rejection of a
Upon conclusion of the last call, we will have a follow-up conference call
on 17 July 2009 to discuss any issues raised during last call and discuss
appropriate actions. Should there be no substantiate issues surrounding v
14 the Technical Work Group Chairs will then make a
determination to recommend the document to the SIPforum Board of Directors
for approval as a SIPforum Recommendation.
We have decided to employ the following procedure for Working Group Last
Call on SIPconnect 1.1 v14. The document under consideration and its delta
were uploaded to the list on 6/27
Rather than employ the usual IETF 'silence is consent" we are choosing a
more formal ballot procedure typical of IEEE 802 like documents.
The procedure for balloting is a follows.
1. Members reply by email in order to submit their ballots and comments
using the attached spreadsheet file to the list by the deadline.
2. The ballot is submitted with the Subject line indicating the overall
verdict (Approve, Disapprove, Abstain). Example: SIPConnect 1.1 Ballot -
3. An Approve or Abstain vote need not contain any comments, but if
they are included they are non-binding, in other words a change to the
document is not necessarily required for approval. (see sample spreadsheet
4. A Disapprove vote MUST including comments citing specific sections,
text and proposed text changes (sample spreadsheet enclosed).
5. The enclosed ballot spreadsheet should includes the balloter's
initials or name (so as to avoid overwriting someone else's ballot when it
6. Comments MUST provide specific changes to the text which would
satisfy the objection.
7. Along with the enclosure, a summary should be included in the body
of the ballot response email (see below).
