RE: Actions and Issues from June Meeting

As Jonathan is suggesting, that if there are multiple parties interested in
a same topic listed, it is preferred to work together to create a unified
proposal.  I agree it is a good idea.

Since I have signed up to present Item 3-- BER, and Item 7 - Support for
installed cable, I am looking for anyone who is interested in these issues
to jointly propose the proposals to help committee.

I have expressed my approaches in the reflectors in many pieces time to
time.  Please contact me directly to discuss the interest, or further

reasoning why this needs to change.

the 5 criteria.
