[802SEC] Motion on 802 News Bulletin

EC Members,


The following constitutes a revision of the Motion dealing with the support of the IEEE 802 News Bulletin.


Attached is the reply I received form Karen McCabe on the feasibility of working without a pre-plenary draft of the News Bulletin. She indicates that IEEE staff is willing to work without the pre-meeting input.


Bob Grow indicated that he may be willing to support a motion on providing input to the news within 3 days in lieu of the status report due within one hour of the closing of a plenary session.


Based on that I would like your comments on the following proposed motion for the closing EC meeting. I will only present if we get a chance of passing the motion otherwise we will take it up next time.




Whereas the IEEE 802 News Bulletin has become the standing means by which the IEEE 802 WGs and TAGs disseminate timely information, it is resolved that:


·      The requirement for the WG Chair to deliver  a "Plenary Closing Status Report" to the EC secretary within an hour of the close of the WG meeting be replaced with the following responsibilities:

      •  The WG chair is responsible for assuring that timely input is provided to the 802 News Bulletin coordinator to facilitate posting of a final version of the News Bulleting one week after the closing of each 802 plenary.  To this end a summary of the  WG accomplishments  shall be provided within three days of the close of the  Plenary session.
    • The WG chair may delegate this responsibility to a WG member.



Please let me have your comments and I will see if we are close to consensus.



Title: Re: Bulletin Motion


The advance/early input was put in place in efforts to be in a better
position to get the bulletin out in a "timely" manner. The objective was to
have as much input upfront (a week before the actual plenary) so we can
edit and flow into the layout, etc. Immediately after the plenary, we could
just add some edits and get the bulletin out.
But as we have experienced, getting the early input was difficult and we
wound up being behind the eight ball.

Getting the reports 3 days after the meeting works. We would need to
edit/proof rather quickly (say 1-2 days the most), then get back for a
review. If all parties are accessible, we could still manage to get the
bulletin out one week after we receive the reports--so in total this would
be 10 days after the Plenary ends.

Just let me know if you need any further information, etc.

The motion failed. Out of curiosity would you be willing to forget about
the advance work iof the SEC agrees to having stuff available in 3 days
afgter the meeting. On of the questions had to do with the need about the
advance work
