This is the last call for Board members to submit their votes and comments.  While many members have voted, some have not.  We will close the vote on Wednesday, May 22, at 11:59 PM EDT. 

For your convenience, the ballot is included below.  As a reminder, all votes should be sent to the Board list.


CVE ID Syntax Change - Second Round Voting Ballot 
- Deadline May 22, 2013, 11:59 PM EDT

This is the official voting ballot for the Second Round of voting 
for the CVE ID Syntax Change.

The Second Round voting period is from 12:01 AM US EDT on
Wednesday, May 8, 2013 until 11:59 PM US EDT on Wednesday,
May 22, 2013.


A summary of the two options is listed as OPTION A and OPTION B. 

Option A is modified from the first round, per discussion on the CVE
Editorial Board mailing list. 

The previous Option C has been eliminated from further consideration.

1) You MUST fill out the entire voting ballot and post it to the entire CVE 
   Editorial Board mailing list.

2) All votes MUST be received by 11:59 PM US EDT on Wednesday,
    May 22, 2013.  Please allow for possible delays in email delivery
    and adjust accordingly.

3) There is only one vote per organization.

4) Only the FIRST valid voting ballot counts for each organization. A valid
    voting ballot lists the first and second choice, and provides reasons for
    each choice (details below).  If another ballot is received at a later
    time, only the first valid ballot will be counted.

5) A ballot will be marked as "invalid" and returned to the voter if any 
    of the following occurs:
   - the first and second choices are not clearly identified
   - there is no reason provided for one or more choices
   - it is not clear which reason is associated with which option
   - the ballot is not published to the Editorial Board mailing list
   - the ballot is not received by the deadline.

   The voter may fix an invalid ballot and resubmit a valid ballot as long 
    as it is submitted before the deadline.

6) Other details about procedures are covered in the email sent to the 
    CVE Editorial Board mailing list on May 7, 2013, with the subject line
    "CVE ID Syntax Change  - 2nd Round Voting - Procedures and Timeline
    (starts May 8, 2013)".

Filling out the ballot

1) As specified in the VOTING BALLOT below, clearly indicate your
    FIRST CHOICE and SECOND CHOICE.  For each choice, list either
    "OPTION A" or "OPTION B".

   - Each option can only be listed once.

   - The FIRST choice is the syntax option that is your primary choice.  
     This is the option that you most want CVE to use.

   - The SECOND choice is the option that you would select *if* your
     FIRST choice is not accepted.

2) For each choice, fill out the associated REASONS section to give your
    reason(s) for supporting (or not supporting) your choice. The reason(s)
    must be in plain text and included in-line with the form, not as
    an attachment. There is no limit on the length of your response.
