RE: CD PROPOSAL: INCLUSION - Interim Decision 8/23

Concur that the number of "voters" varies considerably depending on the
subject and the schedule of the voter(s) to review and put some thought into
their vote.  I too would like to see at least three non-Mitre members vote,
no offense Bill and Dave {8>)
But I agree with Steven here that for the older "known" vulnerabilities
probably two non-MITRE votes should suffice.
If I recall correctly, non-voting members are those who chose to remain in
the background "observers" if you will, but still want to be aware of what
is going on with the board.
Anyone who wants to be considered a "voting" member should make an effort to
participate as often as possible given the circumstances of work, schedule,
availability, etc. As difficult as that may be at times.

Craig, what do you think of the approach of 2 non-MITRE for "old"
vulnerabilities that are tested by tools, and 3 non-MITRE for newer

I'm only starting to get a handle on the Board's voting patterns at
this time, so I don't think I could define "active voting member" very

How's this:
  - an "active voting member" at a particular time is one who either:
    - (a) has voted in the previous two weeks
    - (b) has voted several times in the previous month
    - (c) has not declared themselves inactive
  - the votes must be in a "similar issue," e.g. votes for candidates
    are all a "similar issue," or votes for content decisions, or
    votes for membership, or votes for other Board decisions

(a) and (b) assume that voting activities have taken place on a
regular basis, which is the case for the foreseeable future.  (c)
allows someone to state that they should not be included, e.g. due to
vacations or deadlines.  The "similar issue" votes are a recognition
of the different roles that Board members play.
