[802.3ae] Fwd: Electronic Invitation P802.3ae: Re-opening!


The "Invitation to Ballot" to become a member of the Sponsor Ballot Group 
for the balloting of:
         P802.3ae, Physical Layers and Management Parameters for 10 Gb/s 
has been reopened.

If you wished to vote on the 10 GbE draft at the IEEE level then this is 
your opportunity to apply to do so per the message below.

For your application to be successful you must be a member of:
         The IEEE -or- The Computer Society
         A member of the IEEE-SA (Standards Association)

If you have successfully applied earlier AND your e-mail was confirmed by 
the balloting office AND your e-mail address has not changed THEN you do 
not need to reapply.

IMPORTANT: There are 4 categories shown. You will be required to check one 
of the categories. They are:
      General Interest
Categories and balance between categories are a requirement of ANSI. The 
pool is being reopened because the current list doesn't meet the balance 
requirements. Too many of the applicants have described themselves as 
"Producers". Please encourage colleagues from the other categories to sign 
up. If there is any ambiguity in your description of yourself as "Producer" 
or something else then please choose another category. If we do not achieve 
"balance" then the ballot cannot go forward.
