RE: [802SEC] +++ LMSC P&P Revision Ballot +++ Ballot on WG Membership

Hi Mat,
    I also vote disapprove; my main concern is the either/or of attendance or letter of intent in  I think many people today understand the 75% rule for two plenaries...I think it's reasonable to ask them to confirm their interest after they have met an attendance criteria, but not simply to get voting rights on the basis of a LOI.  Similarly, there could be a somewhat relaxed attendance requirement for transition from a Study Group, but still confirmed with an (electronic) LOI confirmation.  This would avoid the automatic voting rights issue that I think a lot of us are uncomfortable with.
P.S. And my apologies for not using the comment form, but I only have the single comment.....

Mat -

I vote Disapprove. While broadly in a greement with the intent, there are a couple of things which need fixing still. Comments attached.

Dear EC members,


Below is the status of the LMSC P&P Revision Ballot on WG Membership.  The ballot closes April 28, 2003 11:59 PM EDT. This is a couple of days away, and this is your FINAL warning to vote on this ballot.  Please get in your votes and comments so we can have a successful comment resolution on the ballot.  (Remember if you do not vote or abstain it is equivalent to a DISAPPROVE vote). But more importantly, to have successful ballot resolution we need to know why you disapprove.  So make your opinion known.  Please identify any inaccuracies you detect in my status report. Also, not everyone has been using the comment form I provided for their formal comments.  When I say comments provided, they have often been informal comments that I intend to include in ballot resolution.  Note that due to the large number of rules issues all running at once, I am not now taking the time to summarize all the comments to date as I have in the past.  I will generate a summary document and distribute it well before comment resolution on this ballot occurs.


Best Regards,
