Subject: [802SEC] EC electronic ballot on 802.22 press release
Paul has delegated it to me to conduct an EC electronic ballot on the
approval of the attached proposed 802.22 press release.
In response to my earlier motion, I received some editorial comments
from Roger, which I appreciate and think add clarity, so I'm attaching a
version of the document which shows the changes that Roger suggested and
I find acceptable and THAT is the version that's the subject of this
MOVE: That the EC approve the release of the attached press release on
802.22's progress (document PR_P02_22V4r1.doc).
Second: Shellhammer (Dr. Shellhammer has read the document - including
the editorial changes in "r1" - and agreed to 2nd my motion.)
INFORMATIONAL - this DRAFT press release accurately states the current
status of 802.22 and points to the significant progress that 802.22 has
achieved by going from 10 initial proposals to a single merged proposal
(baseline) between November 2005 and March 2006. I think that, coupled
with Stuart's press release indicating similar movement towards
consensus in one of his TGs, it is important to give 802 some positive
press rather than simply allowing them to feed on the occasional
contentious deadlock as has, unfortunately, been the case in the past.
(Karen McCabe had reviewed, edited, and approved the previously
circulated version (prior to Roger's editorial suggestions), so I am
simultaneously cc'ing the "r1" version attached to her for her review
and approval and do not anticipate that she will have any problems with
the editorial changes that Roger suggested and I've accepted. However,
regardless of the EC vote on this ballot, I will not ask Karen to
release the press release in the event she does have problems with the
changes. I will also inform the EC ASAP if she indicates to me that she
*does* have any problems with the changes and I will re-start the clock
on the ballot on a "r2" version that addresses any unanticipated issues
she may have with the revised version.)
This ("10 day")EC e-mail ballot will close at 11:59 pm EST on April 9th,
2006, or when all EC members have voted, whichever comes first.
Your prompt attention to voting will be appreciated.
