FWIW - I’ve reviewed the changes and support adoption of this process document.

Below are a few issues that I do *not* intend to block adoption, but maybe suitable for either quick resolution or future discussion.

* 2.5.3 now says that an AB or TAG seat is vacated when "the Chair asks the participant to resign”, without any context or limitation. That seems like an unusual amount of power for the Chair to have at their disposal.

* 3.4 says "A group charter should include formal voting procedures (e.g., quorum or threshold requirements) for making decisions about substantive issues.” but 6.2.6 says "A charter may include additional voting procedures, but those procedures must not conflict with the voting requirements of the Process Document.” These are (mildly) in conflict; I’d suggest changing the “may” in 6.2.6 to a “should."
