Re: [802SEC] The 'Next round' of P&P changes
My only comment is that the last set of four changes was a bit
overwhelming to many of us and it is hard to keep up, particularly since
we are making changes during the plenary week.
I would recommend keeping the changes to separate votes on
related topics and not arbitrarily grouping them together just to have
less ballots. I think if we can isolate them we can easily identify the
easy ones and resolve those quickly. The more difficult ones should be
separate anyways since they are difficult and by combining them we make
passing the vote more difficult.
Having long list of unrelated changes grouped together is
Also, please show the changes in the text when you resolve
comments, don't just make a note of the plan to make a change. That way
we can see what changed by looking directly at the text.
Maybe now would be a good time to use a more structured approach
like we do in letter ballots instead of just a bunch of emails.

Subject: [802SEC] The 'Next round' of P&P changes
I'm in the process of preparing the next round of P&P changes. My
opinion is the 'mechanically' it is simpler to combine multiple sets of
changes into a single document, rather than have separate documents for
each change as I have in the past. What I would do is provide separate
'rationale' followed by a 'proposed change' for each change. I would
still ballot a single document. If a particular issue becomes sticky,
we will simply divide the question for the final vote.
Do people think this is a good idea, or a bad idea?
PS - I will be adding line numbers this time around. Geoff, no need to
