Approve submitting Open Document Format for Office Applications V1.3 CS02 as a candidate for OASIS Standard

Do you approve submitting Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) Version 1.3 CS01 to the OASIS membership for consideration as a candidate for OASIS Standard?

The Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) Version 1.3 [1] was approved as a Committee Specification on 30 October 2020. The TC has received 3 Statements of Use from The Document Foundation, CIB labs GmbH, and Collabora Productivity [2]. Do you now approve submitting this Committee Specification to the OASIS membership for consideration as a Candidate OASIS Standard?

Approving this ballot will result in a 60-day public review after which, if no comments are received, the COS will be submitted to a membership-wide call for consent. If comments are received, the TC will be asked to vote by Special Majority Ballot on whether to continue to the membership vote. This is explained in TC Process section 3.4.2, Public Review of a Candidate OASIS Standard [3].

This ballot requires a Special Majority Vote [4]. The TC roster currently lists 8 voting members. In order to pass, at least 6 (2/3 x 8) members have to vote Yes and no more than 2 (1/4 x 8) members may vote No.

Amendment Posted on Wednesday, 27 January 2021:
My thanks to Alfred Hellstern for catching the typo in the question. The ballot approves submitting CS02 as stated in the title and the body, not CS01. My apologies for the conclusion.
