This is to complete my action item resulting from the following Conference Call item:
Thompson gave verbal update. There was discussion regarding Thompson’s update.
I promised to provide material on the topic in advance of the EC Meetings in Vancouver so you would be prepared for discussion there. I asked to hold off on sending out such material until after the interim to see if any progress was made on my issues. That meeting was held last week. While some progress was made, things are not yet resolved. There were proposals at the close of that meeting to make some changes in the project documentation (PAR, CSD plus the project objectives which are internal to 802.3) but I haven't seen any proposals yet.
THE PROJECT and TITLE
THE PROJECT SCOPE
And, as per our 802 Operations Manual 9.2
The CSD statement shall be reviewed and approved by the WG and the Sponsor as part of the approval process for the following:
• Forwarding the PAR to NesCom
• As part of the WG ballot to assure the draft is consistent with the CSD
• Forwarding the draft to Sponsor ballot
• Forwarding the draft to RevCom
It is this review for "Forwarding the draft to Sponsor ballot" that is expected to be on the EC agenda in Vancouver.
The issue: I do not feel that the draft is consistent with the project documentation (PAR, CSD plus the project objectives which are internal to 802.3)
THOMPSON ISSUES WITH THE PROJECT
Broad Market Potential
THOMPSON'S ISSUES ARE UPHELD
THOMPSON'S ISSUES ARE NOT UPHELD
I have no ax to grind here about product. I care that we follow our rules, I think they are there for a reason. I care that Ethernet means Ethernet instead of any wired LAN. I do think that a PLCA standard should be developed with a distinct identity.
