Under Bylaw 2.2(g), a ballot result will be considered valid only when more than half of the number of currently active Members has participated. Half of currently active Members is 10, so quorum was 11 votes - quorum was met.

Bylaw 2.2(f) requires a yes vote by two-thirds of CA votes and 50%-plus-one browser votes for approval.  This requirement was not met for either CAs or browsers.  At least one CA Member and one browser Member must vote in favor of a ballot for the ballot to be adopted.  This requirement was met

Accordingly, the ballot fails.
