Move 802.5 to Hibernation Status

Bob, technically, there are 802.5 PARs on the Standards Board agenda for

P802.5x (C/LM) Standard for Virtual Bridged Local Area Networks: Source
Routing - Supplement to IEEE Std 802.1Q
P802.5z (C/LM) Supplement to - Information Technology Telecommunications
and Information Exchange Between Systems - Local and Metropolitan Area
Networks - Specific Requirements - Part 5: Token Ring Access Method and
Physical Layer Specifications - Aggregation of Multiple Link Segments

Please answer the following;

Are there any other open PARs in 802.5 besides these two above?

I would prefer to do the hibernating ballot after all PARs are officially
withdrawn. We can do that the last week in June (after Standards Board
meeting) or wait until Monday of Plenary (it is not necessary for you to
attend to hibernate).
