Other WG activities:
The consolidated working group and task group minutes for this meeting are available here.
- The 802.11 Policies and Procedures document is under revision. An overview of changes can be found in document 06/811r0. The updated document with revision marks is available as 06/812r1. This document will be approved with a working group vote in the July meeting.
- The working group approved sending a reply to the liaison letter from TIA TR41.4. The approved response is in document 06/0796r2.
- The working group approved a motion to change the duration of letter ballots from 40 days to 30 days. This will allow the task group editors time to incorporate approved changes into a draft following a meeting, conduct a letter ballot to approve a letter ballot on the revised draft, and then conduct a letter ballot on the draft. With this change, it will be possible to complete this process in the time between meetings of the working group. This change will be incorporated into the revision of the policies and procedures, scheduled for an approval vote in July.
