Re: [802SEC] Get IEEE 802 program status report; motion proposal
I salute the Task Force for moving us forward and, particularly, for
their genuine responses to the questions that have been raised. I am
satisfied with the answers at this stage of the process and will
support the motion.
P.S. Some of the information in the Task Force report was, I believe,
considered sensitive by Jerry. It is now open to the world on the SEC
reflector. Was this intended?
