Re: [802SEC] +++ LMSC P&P Revision Ballot +++ P&P_Revision_Process
My "non-voting" vote on "LMSC P&P Revision Ballot
DISAPPROVE, my vote will change to approve upon satisfactory resolution
of the issues mentioned below.
First, I would strongly suggest that all ballots be distributed as PDF's
and have line numbers on each page so that (a) page location of text is
stable and (b) referenced text can be pointed to precisely.
18.104.22.168 sub (2)(a)
CHANGE "my" TO "may"
22.214.171.124 sub (2)
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, quorum requirements shall be as specified
in subclause Error! Reference source not found. Error! Reference source
a) Any currently active working or technical advisory group. A
proposal shall require the affirmative vote of at least three fourths of
the members present of such working group or technical advisory group.
When the vote is taken, quorum requirements shall be as specified in
subclause [to be supplied by 1st Vice Chair].
Clarity and precision, proposal can only be made by active groups.
126.96.36.199 Proposed changes
I do not understand the intent of this change. As closely as I can tell
the only effect is that it will no longer be proper to discuss issues
"formerly known as assigned for study" at the Sunday P&P
meetings. This seems counterproductive. As such, I would be opposed. I am
perfectly willing to mandate that "FKAAFS" go the bottom of the
agenda on Sunday.
I also don't know what "may not be
considered again until a future session" means.
Do you mean "shall not be
considered again until a future plenary session"?
...or do you mean something else?
What does "not considered" mean? Does that mean discussion on
the topic is forbidden on the EC reflector? Please define
"considered" in this context. I am particularly concerned as to
what this may mean if we enable "future sessions" to be
teleconferences. I do not think we should be revising our P&P away
from the plenaries.
I am willing to say that "FKAAFS" will not be balloted on
before the next plenary meeting of the EC.
To the following text:
An up to date LMSC P&P should be maintained on the IEEE 802
"The currently in-force LMSC P&P shall be that which is on the
IEEE 802 website."
(I would prefer that we also specify an unchanging URL)
Appropriate changes to the surrounding text should also be made. My
position would be that a version of the P&P "is
qualified" to be put in force at the end of the plenary session but
that it is not in force until it is posted. What folks can get is what
should be the law, not what they "are supposed to have". This
will keep us clean with AudCom and probably (once again) make us the
shining example of how things should be run.
188.8.131.52 Editorial Discretion
I have some problems with this. It needs to be less absolute so we have
somewhere to go in case of a dispute. For example, there should be
provision to roll back to the last voted text if there is a change in
dispute. We should be notified if there is an non-voted update.
I look forward to our discussions to satisfactorily resolve all of these
With best regards and sincerest wishes for a Happy new Year,
