Re: [802.3_NGBASET] IEEE P802.3bz 2.5G/5GBASE-T Sponsor ballot recirculation results, website updates, and meeting time

Geoff - David and I discussed this prior to putting in the comment. As I understand it, The title of the amendment must be within the scope of the par (which includes Mac parameters). It was looking at the par that sensitized me to this - the par title includes the Mac whereas the one on the draft didn't. Question is, does the amendment need to EXACTLY match the title in 2.1 of the par:

2.1 Title: Standard for Ethernet Amendment: Media Access Control Parameters, Physical Layers and Management Parameters for 2.5 Gb/s and 5 Gb/s Operation

I do appreciate your advice in this, as my objective is to keep the draft correct within the rules.

If you wish to accept Mr. Zimmerman's comment
then you will have to put in a PAR modification package
along with the REVCOM submittal package.

The title of the project is controlled by the PAR.
One of the things that revCom checks is whether the title on the draft matches the title on the PAR.
