Re: [10GBT] Agenda
Considering 8 of the TBDs are in the power backoff
table, 3 are related to the delay parameters and 2 are the variance in timer
values, I expect that to review the changes and explain the final values for
the TBDs should only take about an hour.
How much 802.3 agenda time are you planning on for on
Thursday afternoon to go through the changes from 1.4 -> 2.0 and to explain
the final values for the 13 TBDs?

Dear Task Force members,
I'm not sure how many of you
have reviewed the number of TBDs in the P802.3an draft, but the draft has gone from ~200 TBDs in D1.2
to ~110 TBDs in D1.3 to 13 TBDs in D1.4. The Task Force has made excellent
progress on generating a technically complete draft, which is the goal of
Task Force review and a requirement for Working Group ballot.
I applaud the members of the Task Force for their hard work
and focused effort. As per the approved schedule, the goal for this
coming meeting will be to request approval to submit D2.0 to Working Group
ballot. From the comments I have reviewed on D1.3 and D1.4, the Task
Force is shifting from adopting technical proposals into the draft to making
technical refinements of the draft. This is a very good indication
that the Task Force is ready to make the move to Working Group ballot and
To support the schedule, the plan will be to work
Tuesday and Wednesday until all the TBDs and comments are closed.
Then, the Task Force will conclude any remaining business including
decisions on generating D2.0 and forwarding it to Working Group
ballot. Upon completion of the Task Force meeting (assuming a request
to go to Working Group ballot), the Task Force editors will use the
remaining time for the generation of D2.0 and a D1.4-to-D2.0 comparison
document. In other words, if the Task Force completes its business by
noon on Wednesday, Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning will be used by
the editorial staff to prepare for the Working Group ballot request.
For all other members of the Task Force, the time will be yours to use as
you see fit.
Chair, IEEE P802.3an Task Force
