RE: Revision of Item #1 of the Implementation Plan

Question:  What are the IEEE indemnification rules?

Comment: Assuming IEEE indemnification adds value for 802 participants, I'm
ok with releasing the names only under strict "not available for other
contact" condition.

like one of their standards; you sue IEEE (who actually have some money to
go after).

what benefits our members would derive from being on their list.
