[10GMMF] Message from David Cunningham regarding this month's meeting

I forward the following on David's behalf,
Regards, Nick.


Dear 10GBASE-LRM and Sponsor ballot Pool Members, 

I have been contacted by various people asking if there needs to be a
interim meeting of IEEE802.3aq. There were six comments. All comments
clearly out of scope. Formally, as there were comments, even out of
comments, I have to hold a meeting. However, the meeting will be very
and is likely to last only an hour or so. The only topic on the agenda
be the responses to the six comments. I expect that Nick Weiner our
will upload the comments and responses to the public area of the 
10GBASE-LRM web page tomorrow see:

I understand that many of you will not want to travel for so few
and such a brief meeting. Therefore, I am in the process of arranging a 
teleconference number for the meeting. When I have the number it will be

distributed on the 10GBASE-LRM reflector and will also appear on the web

page for the IEEE 802.3 Austin Interim meeting at:
