1. You haven't provided the required information.
a. There is no schedule for the recirculation ballot. All the package says is the recirculation must complete one week before RevCom meets. How about some actual dates that give us confidence that the LMSC 15 day recirculation period has been remembered, and that the ballot will have been opened by the RevCom submittal deadline as their conventions require.
b. It looks like you have provided a complete comment report, nice to point at but not what is requested. It isn't my job to filter through the comments to see which ones are linked to negative ballots. I expect a separate unresolved negative comment report.
2. There is confusing and unnecessary info to distract EC members. Actually the only critical information in the Procedure 10 presentation is slide 9.
a. I find inclusion of the WG/LB ballot stuff in the procedure 10 presentation confusing. The only thing that matters for RevCom submission is the Sponsor Ballot process/results as required in the procedure 10 bullets. Move LB info to supplementary material rather than leading with it.
b. Slide 9 -- I don't need to be confused by "conditionally change their vote to yes". They are either yes or no at this moment. If you don't have an email flipping the vote (no conditions), don't promise a higher approval percentage. If you have the email or some other kind of sign-off for a ballot flip, be prepared to produce it if asked.. You will be able to report conditional flips (e.g., I want to look at it in the draft during recirculation, but I should be satisfied) to us when you report the results of the D1.6 ballot.
c. The items in the Procedure 10 numbered list are something you report to us after the D1.6 recirculation to justify leaving the submittal on the RevCom agenda. Yes you need your own check list now for project management, but the EC should be focused on the facts, not speculations about what will happen with D1.6.
d. The draft is nice but not required for Procedure 10 EC review. Having it though and seeing that there were changes to the title, I compared it to the PAR. Now you get to explain on the RevCom submission why the document title balloted and the PAR do not agree (e.g., why did you delete "LAN", the "Amendment" thing is obviously for adaptation to current publication style).
3. Slide 10, item 4 comment is prejudicial. The number of comments in the comment report is sufficient justification that comment resolution has been largely completed. To indicate a prejudice to not make any changes in response to D1.6 1st SB recirculation comments that you haven't seen isn't good.
Per the instructions given to 802.11 at the Portland ExCom Closing Plenary meeting I am enclosing the information regarding agenda item 5.12 - 802.11j for consideration for approval, to forward to RevCom under procedure 10 of the LMSC P&P (now paragraph 21 - revised July 16, 2004).
I know that I may be asking a lot of you but, please could you kindly review the complete package before I send this to Paul for the ExCom motion, which I will of course incorporate any valuable suggestions of yours before sending to him. I would like to send the pack by Thursday this week, so an early consideration would be very much appreciated.
Attached is the complete package of P802.11j documentation sent to me by the Task Group (Sheung Li) which I have reviewed and amended accordingly, including;
1) Procedure 10 Presentation, including vote tallies for 802.11 ExCom members.
2) P802.11j D1.6 clean draft, expecting no further technical changes.
3) P802.11j D1.6 redlined draft.
4) Sponsor Ballot comment resolution document, indicating resolutions.
I believe that item 1) above is the executive summary that the ExCom members are looking for.
Carl Stevenson has agreed to second the ExCom motion, particularly in the light of Paul's stance regarding the News/Closing reports, should be cleared by tonight with regards to 802.11.
Thanks for your help in advance,
