Re: [802SEC] +++EC Email Ballot+++ Approval of November/Januaryminutes and reports

Disapprove, with the following comments:

(1) Approval of the "Motin" does not include approval of the January 
minutes since that is not in the text of the motion. However, the 
preceding paragraph may lead some reasonable people to believe 
otherwise. This situation is too ambiguous for me to vote Approve.

(2) As I understand the motion, we are approving everything at 
<>. There is a link there 
labeled "802 News Bulletin." However, that Bulletin is wrong (as it 
must be, since that link is nonexistent).

(3) I note that pages 127 and 129 are labeled with an "802.17" logo. 
According to the of the P&P, 'Proposed changes my be created 
by: a) Any working group or technical advisory group. A proposal 
shall require the affirmative vote of at least three fourths of the 
members present when the vote is taken..." b) Any Executive Committee 
Member.' Since the motion slide on page 125 is labeled with the 
802.17 logo, one might presume that it was submitted by the 802.17 WG 
based on a 75% vote of that group. If this is the case, it should be 
noted specifically in the minutes.

Also, although the January minutes are not part of the motion, I have 
the following comments on them:

(a) Under 5.02, the sentence "Jim Carlo has taken the initiative to 
have a letter drafted to present to the BoG and sent by Friday 
(1/16/2004) that
supports the 802.11 position." in incorrect. It would be nearly 
correct if "802.11" were replaced by "802". I would be satisfied with 
that change.

(b) Under 5.02, the following is misleading: "Stuart indicated that 
he will be in China for three conferences by May. He will carry any 
further positions of the EC with him." It could be interpreted as 
meaning that the EC agreed that Stuart will formally represent the 
EC. I do not believe that such a decision was discussed in the 
meeting. I would be satisfied with a change of the latter sentence to 
"He volunteered to carry any further positions of the EC with him."
