Re: [802.3_4PPOE] Definition of alt_pwrd_pri

Len art - Your intent of the change sounds good to me. I have to think a bit about whether there is a better description . The   wording ‘is to apply Power’ still falls into the trap of implying a  future action

Hi all,


We discussed this at the last meeting and I feel we did not end up with a good solution.

The definition of variables should be restricted to what the variable does or represents.
These variables' "TRUE" description includes behaviour that (should have) happened in the past, as well as making a forward looking statement.

If we look at how these variables are actually used, the definition really is very simple:

FALSE = The PSE is not to apply power to the XYZ Alternative.
TRUE = The PSE is to apply power to the XYZ Alternative.

Objections ?
