What is the status of the ICZN ruling on electronic-only publication of nomenclatural acts?

A proposed amendment to the Code outlined mechanisms to allow publication of nomenclatural acts in electronic-only journals (but not on websites or other transient electronic media). This was published in a range of journals and available for public input for a year, then submitted to the IUBS at its meeting in Capetown, South Africa, in November 2009, where it was ratified in principle. Further discussion is ongoing, with a vote by the Commission anticipated in late 2010.
