FW: [802SEC] +++ SEC EMAIL BALLOT +++ MOTION: Authorize conditional forwarding of P802.11g/D6.1 to Sponsor Ballot

I would back Stuart in this effort. I believe I have already seen
that claim compliance with 11g and it would nice to actually have an
amendment out there to which these products could be held accountable.

I believe that you observation may be indeed correct in the past. But I
feel that we should have some degree of flexibility here, with regards
to the enormous pressure that the 802.11 standard and the amendments is
having applied to it in the commercial market place, especially in this
period of economic downturn. I am fully aware that this should not
influence the IEEE/SA process of the end product.

This said, WE WILL NOT allow a sub-standard poor quality amendment out
of 802.11 or indeed the recognized IEEE process before it is ready. I
have clarified this with my WG and TG, and have been assured, and
verified myself that this amendment is ready to go. Careful proven
process has taken place with the 802.11g amendment.

I don't ever recall seeing a Conditional Approval email ballot. I
think that Conditional Approval was invented to cover the case in
which a ballot is not quite finished at the time of an SEC meeting.
If we aren't in a meeting, the SEC is normally asked to review the
ballot after it closes.
