[Wg-uma] Call for votes: approval of August meeting minutes

A reminder: Please review the minutes, and please vote.

Note that in Kantara, the chair has discretion to manage quorum  
requirements in the following way:


 From Section 3.7:

"All Participants present at a WG meeting are voting members of the  
WG.	For the purpose of maintaining a reasonable ability to achieve  
Quorum, any Participant in a WG who fails to attend two consecutive  
meetings of the WG may, at the discretion of the Chair, be re- 
classified as a non-voting member. Voting member status may be  
reacquired by attending a meeting of the WG. In the case of an  
electronic vote of the WG, if the electronic vote occurs while a  
Participant is in non-voting status, the Participant may not vote in  
that electronic vote."

I may have to resort to this after this ballot closes, if the response  
has been very low.  If you want to retain list posting rights (that  
is, exercise your right to contribute IP according to the group  
participation agreement you filled out) but have no intention of  
attending any meetings or voting in electronic ballots, feel free to  
let me know offline that you're a serial non-voter. :-)
