This document lists the technical policies and procedures established by the OTC in accordance with the project bylaws and the requirements specified by the OMC.

Voting Procedure

The following regulations complement the OTC Voting Procedures stated in the project bylaws:

The proposer of a vote is ultimately responsible for updating the votes.txt file in the OTC Git repository. Outside of a face to face meeting, voters MUST reply to the vote email indicating their preference and optionally their reasoning. Voters MAY update the votes.txt file in addition.

The proposed vote text SHOULD be raised for discussion before calling the vote.

Public votes MUST be called on the project list, not the OTC list and the subject MUST begin with “VOTE:”. Private votes MUST be called on the OTC list with “PRIVATE VOTE:” beginning subject.
