Dear All,
        solicited by Peter, I add my cent to "what the rest of the CESG 
has to say".

Frankly speaking the concise definition of Consensus we have in the Yellow 
Book is fine to me as captures the essential aspects we need (i.e. an 
agreement - possibly - at the cost of many small individual 
renunciations). BTW, this is also consistent with CESG/CMC Polls where one 
disapprove - and not majority -  is sufficient to stop the progress.
It looks to me that the current discussion put much more accent and the 
process to reach consensus. This is indeed a very interesting (and 
delicate) topic where guidelines [not rules, IMHO] can be commendable but 
not in the Org&Procs Yellow Book.

For Sec I think that the one word change  < Project 
changes that imply significant change in resource requirements shall be 
subject to CMC approval via polling. > was implicitely rejected in San 
Antonio when we were told that CMC requires to have full 
control/visibility of resources. 

I must also say that I do share Chris statement about the fact that "we 
already have far more bureaucracy than we need and are in danger of losing 
track of the real reason for the existence of CCSDS".

As Nestor suggested 2 options 
Option A: put on hold, discuss, agree and send to CMC for further review 
Option B: phase approach, go now to CMC for review and introduce other 
changes in the next review

I would go for B.

Best regards
