Successful conclusion of P802.3bf Sponsor Ballot 2nd. recirculation


In case you did not see this message from David Law:

"Dear Colleagues,

The IEEE P802.3bf Time Synchronisation second sponsor recirculation ballot
closed successfully on Thursday 7th April with 100% approval and no
comments. As a result of this Steve Carlson, the IEEE P802.3bf Task Force
chair, has cancelled the IEEE P802.3bf interim meetings that had been
scheduled for 20th April and 24th May 2011. The ballot statistics are as

115 Voters
 97 Approve
  0 Disapprove with comment
  0 Disapprove without comment
  7 Abstain
104 Ballots returned


 90% Response Rate (>= 75% required)
  6% Abstain Rate (< 30% required)
100% Approval Rate (>= 75% required)

In accordance with the IEEE 802 LMSC Operations Manual Clause 14 statement
that 'When conditional forwarding to RevCom has been approved by the
Sponsor, the submittal may be forwarded to RevCom before the conditions have
been fulfilled in order to meet the submittal requirements for the next
RevCom meeting.', I have already submitted IEEE P802.3bf to RevCom for
consideration at its May meeting under RevCom convention #6 'RevCom Policy
for Recirculation Ballots in Progress at the Submittal Deadline (25/15 Day
Policy)'. "

The work of the P802.3bf Task Force is finished and no further meetings will
be held.  Thank you to all who participated in this project, especially
Marek Hajduczenia, our Chief Editor, and David Law for all of his support.
There will be a final report presented at the 802 Plenary meeting in July.

Best Regards,


Steven B. Carlson
