As I said yesterday, I believe we are now under new rules.
We do not have a project number for the amendment, so there is no
project, and as a new project we will operate under new rules.

Then there are 4 ballots

NP can be ballotted in a SC34 plenary, provided it is on the agenda.
PDAM is a 2, 3 or 4 month ballot
DAM is a 5 month ballot.
FDAM is a 2 month ballot, which can be avoided if there are no 
  negative votes on the DAM ballot.

See ISO/IEC directives clause 2.
