This email captures the comment resolution discussions held on the last two
TP2 con-calls, and represents the attendance of those calls.
Specifically, see the proposed resolutions given below in blue text.
Comment 49 & 50
No disagreement that overshoot masks should
be relaxed. Lew was not on call to present his view that overshoot masks
should be eliminated, so final value decision was deferred. Plan to
discuss next week.

principle. Set Y3 = 0.8.
Re-raised concern that absolute overshoot
power may need to be limited for Rx linearity. No specific proposals were
given, and no specific comment was submitted, so this is a potential
Comment 81 & 83
Recalled that prbs pattern is for component
level testing. Normative test will use a subpattern from AnAi or
Agreed that final prbs pattern must be
better defined, preferably referencable through another standard.
Agreed that final prbs pattern should be
convenient, preferable built-into pattern generators.
- It is understood that prbs7 is probably not adequate, but more work is
required to determine the best option. Work is planned (see TP2 notes).
Discussion about insertion of extra zero to
balance prbs pattern not conclusive.
Agilent has reported that
"zero-insertion" is standard on new equipment.
Idea was raised to insert long(er) runs of
1's and 0's into pattern to stress lower frequency impairments. Not
Plan to discuss again next week.

- Add footnote to table
68-5 '2^9-1 PRBS': 'A suitable pattern may be generated by the
polynomial x^9+x^5+1 as specified in ITU-T V.52. The data sequence d(n)
is given by d(n)=d(n-9)+d(n-5), modulo 2. The pattern is
not inverted such that there is a run of nine ones in its length
of 511 bits.'
- Add another sentence

Okay. Waiting to discuss MATLAB code 1/20
on TP2 call. Editorial format for the code, including scope of comments,
should follow precedence of other standards (clause 40). TL - clause 40
appears to have minimal comments.

calls. Insert at Figure 68-6.

Instead of an annex,
the TP2 group proposes to put text in body of document adjacent to
Figure 68-6. I propose it be subclause 126.96.36.199.1. The title of the
