Thanks for this note. I would like to make a single clarification in two parts:
1. Any change to D4.3 (including small editorial changes) will cause us to circulate a D4.4 package and presubmit D4.4 to REVCOM. Any new negatives that are not withdrawn will also cause a D4.4 recirculation.
2. If there is even one proposed substantive change, we fall into a different level of the decision tree:
2a. If there is not sufficient representation at the meeting to make it clear that the proposed change represents the intent and will of the Task Force at large, it is unlikely that we will have a D4.4 recirculation until after the July plenary meeting.
2b. If there is sufficient representation at the meeting to make it clear that the proposed change represents the intent and will of the Task Force at large, we will recirculate a D4.4. But, if there is any reasonable risk that a change will result in a negative ballot against D4.4, we should chose to not presubmit to the June standards board (i.e. delay approval till September).

| Subject: [802.3ae] Tomorrow's 802.3ae meeting
| This is to remind everyone that the 802.3ae meeting for April
| 30 (tomorrow)
| is still on. Comments received in the recirculation of D4.3
| include: new
| Negative ballots (Technical Required comments), significant Technical
| comments and even some editorial comments that are
| substantive. There has
| been discussion on some reflectors about proposed changes
| with words like
| "the only thing worth changing in the draft at this time".
| Everyone should
| recognize that any changes made in response to these comments
| require an
| additional recirculation, and any comments in that
| recirculation will delay
| approval until the September Standards Board meeting. The
| meeting will be
| carefully evaluating these comments.
| I look forward to seeing you at the meeting. As usual, the meeting
| information is available on the web site.
