Dear EC Members, On April 21, 2004 the CRG of 802.17 met to resolve comments on the Sponsor Ballot Recirculation of P802.17 D3.2. The recirculation ballot closed on April 16, 2004. I regret to inform the EC that I believe we have failed to meet the conditions set forth in Procedure 10. Specifically, (item 4) we have chosen to make some changes to the draft that do constitute technical changes (and are detailed below). That being said, as the volume of comments were down substantially from previous ballots and the operational technical change corrects a rather obscure corner case I will be requesting the EC to grant conditional approval again under Procedure 10 via an email ballot (to follow after this email). ------------------------------------------------------------------------ P802.17 D3.2 Recirc Statistics: Ballot closed on April 16, 2004. 76 Approve 4 Disapprove 5 Abstains = 95% Affirmative No new disapprove voters: Note: One of the disapprove voters had flipped his vote via email to me but did not submit a new ballot. Therefore the Approval ratio could be as high as 96% (77/3/5). 67 comments were received from 7 commentors: Only 1 negative balloter submitted comments (30 comments) 30 Editorial comments 9 Technical Binding comments from an existing negative voter 28 Technical Non Binding comments from approving voters No new valid disapprove votes or comments on new issues that were not resolved to the satisfaction of the disapprove voter. 5 unresolved comments from a negative voter. All comments were against non-changebar text. 4 were restatements of issues raised in previous ballots, 1 was an editorial change (to reformat a table) marked as a technical issue. Technical/Operational Change: -An error was found in the protection state machine. A corner case/race condition that is highly unlikely to occur in a real system but is theoretically possible was fixed. Technical/Non Operational Change: -IETF review of the MIB found that a few initialization values / indentifiers were incorrect and caused MIB compilation to fail. Pseudo-Technical / Editorial Change: -inconsistent use of units for 1 variable. One variable was marked as being in micro-seconds (with its default being 1000), whereas the other related variables in the same state machine used milliseconds. -3 changes in existing PICs statements -2 optional PICs statements added -missing references -other minor editorial fixes Moving Forward: http://www.ieee802.org/17/member/draftballots/d3_3/index.htm contains the latest draft and all associated documentation. Draft 3.3 and associated comments were created and forwarded to SA Staff for Recirculation Ballot. Balloting started on date April 23, with end date May 8. Assuming that the EC grants conditional approval for 802.17 D3.3: A teleconference will be held Monday May 10th, 2004 to review comments / determine if we can submit to RevCom. Recirculation ballot will be started May 13th (as appropriate). cheers, mike ---------- This email is sent from the 802 Executive Committee email reflector. This list is maintained by Listserv.
