Re: [802SEC] Submission of P802.1s


So your plan is:?
         1) If no new disapproves or draft changing comments
                 Submit 11/1 for December with no new recirculation
         2) If new disapproves or draft changing comments
                 Submit for March REVCOM meeting

There is no point to doing comment resolution at the November meeting if 
you have submitted except in the VERY limited circumstances set forth below.

The Sponsor Ballot process requires that you "consider" all comments. I 
would have to assume that the "consideration" of comments is not serious if 
the session for doing that is not scheduled until after the package is 
submitted to REVCOM. It would be arguable at REVCOM that you were not 
following the process if you were to do that even if all of the comments 
received were APPROVE/Editorial. The only way out that you would have to 
argue against this point (and you should argue this) is that the comment 
resolution meeting has the right to pull the package from the REVCOM agenda 
if there is any comment resolution which would change the draft or require 
an additional recirc.

The only other appropriate draft changing "product" of the November comment 
resolution meeting would be a list of changes that the publications editor 
could "consider" during preparation for publication.

The other method, of course, is that you could have a comment resolution 
meeting between close of recirc and Nov.1.

I 'spect you know all of this, but I figured it was a good opportunity to 
keep things clear for all of the other WG Chairs.
