Re: [802.3_4PPOE] need opinions



As a person who is mainly interested in PoDL and the automotive related standards, this idea is fine with me.     If I was planning on attending the Interim/ Plenary meeting, having the PoDL meeting on Wednesday as opposed to Monday will not affect my travel plans.  Also, not having the PoDL meeting overlap with 802.3bp would be a plus for moving the PoDL meeting to Wednesday.

Yeah, I’ve had offline replies and one of them was a concern that it may decrease participation in PoDL. I’m thinking the reason I’m getting replies offline is cause when I hit ‘reply all’ for this email, I get only Dan in the TO line. Those that have responded, can you resend your response  and make sure to copy the reflector? It is my intention to have this conversation via the reflector and get it decided.


I will state that I just booked my flight for Atlanta and I am flying on Sunday and leaving on Saturday. Yes, this means that I give up two days with my family and I dislike that. I can only offer that this won’t be a permanent thing, just something that we try to help maximize the next three meetings as we try to hit D2.0 in July.

One thing that came to mind... this could increase PODL participation (good/bad? depends)

If bt members decide to work offline or take a hike somewhere, it might reduce our attendance.

I won't oppose the decision of the Task Force, just stating an additional concern.

All, an interesting idea has been posed to me about how to handle interims to better allow mid meeting work. Here is the idea:


Meet on Monday and Tuesday. Have PoDL meet Wednesday. They overflow into Thursday if needed. We use the remainder of Thursday and all of Friday. This gives us a whole day in the middle of the week for offline consensus building and problem solving for the blocking issues.


The down side is you have to plan to be there from Monday 8am to Friday 5pm. I can live with that as it maximizes our productivity. 


I’m curious to hear the groups thoughts about doing this for Atlanta. We have to make a quick decision as the requests will be due shortly.
