(j3.2006) (SC22WG5.5231) RE: Ballot result - did the DTS 18508 ballot pass or fail?

John - I agree that we haven't reached consensus on TS 18508 so the N2012 ballot should fail.  I also think the strategy of J3 revising the TS at the June meeting and then having one more ballot is a reasonable way forward.

Thanks					/Stan

I am not sure what result to attribute to the ballot. While the tally is 6-4-2, I am inclined to say that it has failed - we have not reached consensus. Nevertheless, the comments are far less severe this time and I would like to ask J3 to prepare a revised version for approval by WG5 at the end of the June meeting without a further ballot.

It would still mean that we are behind our agreed schedule (see N1979):

     Edits agreed by J3               2013-10  J3
     WG5 ballot of draft              2013-10
     PDTS ballot initiated            2013-11

Instead we would have:

     Edits agreed by J3               2014-06  J3
     WG5 ballot of draft              2014-06  WG5 meeting
     PDTS ballot initiated            2014-07

Let's do our best to avoid getting any further behind.
