CORRECTION: 
Tas just pointed out that Samrat Kishor has not yet been approved by the PGB as representative of the Baseline TSC and is not eligible to vote. 

That lowers the number of eligible voters to 8. 6 affirmative votes will still be needed in order to pass.

Dear All,

I'm very happy to let you know that the TSC of the Baseline Protocol met for the first time on 11/17, and Andreas and I have been given the responsibility of Co-Chairs for 2022-23. At the same meeting, I was elected to represent Baseline Protocol at the PGB. Since there is a step of acceptance by the PGB before I can vote, may I request an async vote to include me on the PGB such that I can vote on this open ballot before 11/28? The next PGB meeting is on 11/30.

Please advise.

Once again, I thank you all for your trust and support!

Cheers!
Samrat

Hi Samrat, 

Congratulations. Unfortunately, per OASIS rules, once a ballot is opened, people can't be added unless they were eligible when the vote opened and were left off by mistake.
