RE: Free access to drafts
I would like to add my support to open access to the drafts in progress.
I think it is extremely important for the ability of implementers to be able
to review the proposals. Not everyone can actively participate in the
standards process as has been well explained in previous emails. However,
the process, the standard and ultimately the marketplace would suffer if
access is limited.

I also support free access to drafts.
An open standards process requires open access to drafts in progress.
Early and broad exposure to a variety of inputs strengthens the final
In past 802.3 standards efforts we have always welcomed input from folks
who did not have the opportunity to actively participate in meetings.
