Are there any objections to Roger's comments? I have none, and will
implement them in an updated resolution next week if I have heard no

I'm finding the color-coding tough to decipher.
So, please tell me if this version would
introduce this line:
"When appropriate, a new working group is formed
following approval of a PAR by the IEEE-SA
I think that this language would waste an
opportunity to clarify the text. The P&P has
always been ambiguous on this issue, and I think
this language still is. Does it mean that a new
WG is effective immediately upon the PAR
approval? Or does it mean that the EC can form a
new WG after the PAR is approved?
I think it should mean the former. The name of
the WG is an element of the PAR. If the SASB
approves a PAR that was forwarded by 802 and that
includes the name of a WG that had not previously
existed, then I think the WG should come into
existence immediately. There is no point to defer
the decision, because the EC already made the
decision when it forwarded the PAR.
So, I would suggest this language: "If the
IEEE-SA Standards Board approves a PAR, forwarded
by the LMSC, that assigns the work to a new LMSC
Working Group, that Working Group shall
immediately come into existence."
Another comment: "A study group may meet for up
to two plenary cycles, at which point a PAR is
expected to be submitted to the EC for
consideration." should be moved to the section on
Study Groups. A SG reading the P&P could easily
miss this instruction entirely if it sits under
