Subject: Please vote to approve/disapprove the new charter

Hello all,

Following up on Tuesday's CCG call, the chairs proposed we adopt the new 
charter and updates process 
.. This must be adopted following the process in the current charter, which 
requires a 30-day voting period and 2/3 of votes cast signaling approval[1]

Action requested: We request that you signal your approval/disapproval by 
responding to this email with "approve" or "disapprove", and then feel free to 
promptly mute this thread, which may get noisy.


Kim on behalf of chairs

[1] see "Amendments to this Charter" Relevant excerpt:

The group can decide to work on a proposed amended charter, editing the text 
using the Decision Process described above. The decision on whether to adopt 
the amended charter is made by conducting a 30-day vote on the proposed new 
charter. The new charter, if approved, takes effect on either the proposed 
date in the charter itself, or 7 days after the result of the election is 
announced, whichever is later. A new charter must receive 2/3 of the votes 
cast in the approval vote to pass. The group may make simple corrections to 
the charter such as deliverable dates by the simpler group decision process 
rather than this charter amendment process.
