FW: [802SEC] Sponsor Ballot periods--recommended minimum durations
Dear SEC Members,
The minimum duration of Sponsor Initial and Recirculation Ballot periods
ambiguous. Therefore, as a matter of temporary policy for the IEEE 802
LAN/MAN Standards Committee, I hereby recommend that henceforth:
1) the duration of a Sponsor Initial Ballot shall be greater than or
to 30days*24hours in duration and
2) that the duration of a Sponsor Recirculation Ballot shall be greater
or equal to 15days*24hours.
The above periods are equal to our Working Group Initial and
This temporary policy would be in effect until the LMSC Operating Rules
modified to formally remove the ambiguity in the duration of Sponsor
and Recirculation Ballots.
If there are no objections to the above policy, I recommend we follow it
starting immediately. I can make sure the above minimum durations are
observed by the SA balloting center.
Chairman, IEEE 802
