[8023-CMTF] Next steps: September interim...
For those that
missed the 802.3 WG closing plenary in San Diego last week, I'd recommend you
read an earlier post from me with the subject "Status of P802.3ar". It is
intended to provide a quick summary.
Now, we need to
think about where we are going (literally). After the Tuesday afternoon meeting,
I floated the idea of co-locating with IEEE 802.1 in York, UK September 26-29,
2006. Several TF memebrs replied that they thought it was a good idea. I then
discussed the proposal with Tony Jeffree (IEEE 802.1 chair) , Mick Seaman (802.1
Interworking TG chair), and John Messenger (meeting host). I received the green
light to co-locate.
Given that several
TF members have interest in 802.1 congestion management, the plan to co-locate
with 802.1 (as we have done a few times) seemed to make the most sense. However,
this was before the failed motions to approve the revised TF objectives and
Broad Market Potential criterion.
It was suggested
that 802.3ar co-locate with 802.3 in Montreal/Ottawa in September (the week of
the 18th) in the hopes of educating and convincing more 802.3 WG members to
support the project. It was suggested the TF could invite members of other TFs
to attend a potentially non-overlapping meeting. Nothing has been arranged yet
So, I would like to
poll the TF, binary question:
Do you prefer
802.3ar co-locates with 802.3 in Montreal/Ottawa, September 2006 (week of
Do you prefer
802.3ar co-locates with 802.1 in York, 26-29 September 2006?
