RE: [802SEC] Review of 2003 802 CD-ROM content


Could you do me a favor and compile a list of all the withdrawn or
'nearly-withdrawn' standard documents that we want to put on the CD-ROM
(dot2, dot4, dot6, dot7, dot9, dot12, others??) and send it to me and Bob

I'm at the Stds Board meetings this week and I'd like to give a the list to
Jerry Walker to ensure that they get included in the CDROM.

BTW, I think the withdrawn standards are the 802.4, 802.9 and
802.12 documents. However, the IEEE 802.12 listing on Get802
doesn't indicate that it has been withdrawn and both IEEE 802.9
and IEEE 802.12 appear in the IEEE On-line Standards Catalog
without any indication that they are withdrawn.

I'm not sure what the status of 802.6 is. The dates on the standards
are 1994 and 1995 so it seems that they must have been reaffirmed or
withdrawn recently.

I thought about sending that question too, but decided not to
bring it up.

To the extent that we produce the CD so that 802 standards
developers will be able to refer to the earlier standards
to see how a particular problem was handled, to get examples
of text for various situations, etc., the withdrawn standards
are still useful for this purpose.

It might be a good idea, assuming we include the withdrawn
standards, to make sure it is clear which documents are withdrawn.
(One way would be to put them under a separate Withdrawn directory.)
That would prevent some possible mistakes like referencing a
withdrawn standard.

Is it our intention (or not) to include withdrawn (but presumably not
superceded) standards in this collection?
I'm actually willing to go either way on this.
