Subject: [802SEC] +++SEC MOTION+++ TENTATIVE RESULTS Authorize Forwarding of the 802.11g draft to RevCom

Dear SEC members,

There was some question as to whether or not the chair has the authority to extend the ballot duration or what the proper procedure is to do so, therefore I did not attempt to extend the ballot.   (This is an area that we need clarification on for future ballots.)  Therefore the ballot on the motion to authorize forwarding the 802.11g draft to RevCom is closed as originally posted. 

As of 10AM EDT June06 2003, below is the tentative result (7APP, 4DIS, 1ABS, 1DNV) for the ballot .  The final tally will not be posted until after 10PM EDT June 6, 2003 in order to comply with the SEC rules on electronic balloting (extract below) to allow for email delivery time.  Please verify that I have captured your vote correctly.


--Paul Nikolich 

" Executive Committee Electronic Balloting

The Chair, or an Executive Committee member designated by the Chair (usually a Vice Chair), shall determine the duration of the ballot, issue the ballot by e-mail and tally the votes after the ballot is closed. Executive Committee voting members shall return their vote and comments by email. 

The minimum duration of an electronic ballot shall be 10 days unless the matter is urgent and requires resolution in less time. Maximum advance notice is encouraged for all ballots on urgent matters. The tally of votes shall not be made until at least 24 hours after the close of the ballot to allow time for delivery of the e-mail votes.

The affirmative vote of a majority of all voting members of the Executive Committee is required for an electronic ballot to pass."

        Attached is a summary of status of the three "no" voters (O'Farrell, Moreton, Gilb) and the one new "yes" with comments voter (Monteban).

Tim O'Farrell, Supergold

        Tim voted NO on the first Sponsor Ballot, i.e. Draft 6.1 of IEEE 802.11g.  We have not been able to contact him sense.  E-mails were sent on both recirculation ballots requesting his response.  At the April 2003 session of 802.11g, multiple attempts were made to contact Tim to no avail.  On the first recirculation ballot, Tim provided five comments.  One comments was editorial, and it was accepted.  The other four comments were technical.  Tim had two comments related to removing optional functionality, which were both rejected.  Tim also had two comments related to ACR which were both rejected.

-        Summary for Tim O'Farrell
o        Voted "No" on first sponsor ballot
o        Has not voted on last of the recirculation ballots
o        Attempts at contact have failed

Mike Moreton, Synad

        Mike voted NO WITH COMMENTS on Draft 8.2.  All of Mike comments were editorial.  Mike currently maintains his NO vote based on previously circulated comments.

o        None of the technical comments are new
o        All comments were rejected

Leo Monteban, Agere       

        Leo voted YES WITH COMMENTS on Draft 8.2.  Leo submitted two editorial comments.  Both editorial comments were found to be non-substantive by IEEE 802.11 Task Group G, thus both were rejected.

-        Summary for Leo Monteban
o        Cast a "Yes" vote with two comments
o        Both comments were editorial
o        Both comments were rejected


All Comment Resolutions are included in Doc#: 11-03-381 rev.7 as posted to the 802.11 web site, which contains all the comments from the recirculation of Draft 8.2. . A copy of which is attached for you convenience.  The document also contains Tim O'Farrell's comment from the first sponsor ballot and Mike Moreton's and James Gilb's comments from the first ballot.

As there were no new no votes or comments and no subsequent change was made to the 802.11g Draft 8.2, this ballot is concluded and D8.2 and supporting documentation will be forwarded to RevCom for action at the upcoming meeting in June.
