FW: [802SEC] Sponsor Ballot periods--temporary policy on minimum duration
Dear SEC Members,
Based on the feedback received on the suggested policy on minimum
of Sponosr Ballot periods of yesterday (Thurs Feb 6 2003), the
temporary policy will be observed.
The minimum duration of Sponsor Initial and Recirculation Ballot periods
ambiguous. Henceforth, as a matter of temporary policy, the IEEE 802
LAN/MAN Standards Committee shall observe the following practice with
to Sponsor Ballot periods:
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
3) the LMSC Chair reserves the right to modify the above durations on a
by case basis depending on circumstances.
This temporary policy would is in effect until the LMSC Operating Rules
formally modified to remove the ambiguity in the duration of Sponsor
and Recirculation Ballots.
Chairman, IEEE 802
