[802SEC] Clause 20 Report regarding P802.15.4a to Sponsor Ballot
Dear EC Members
The following is the final report of the IEEE 802.15 WG on its conditional
approval to forward the IEEE 802.15.4a draft 4 to Sponsor Ballot. D4 was a
general clean-up of the draft, containing a number of editorial
revisions. This last recirculation, though technically not required since
there were no new no votes or voters on the previous recirculation, was
conducted to insure everyone was satisfied with the edits.
Bottom line, the conditions of conditional approval have been met.
Results from the third (and final) recirculaton, Letter Ballot 36:
* LB36 closed on 24 August 2006. There were no new "no" votes and we
had 5 previous "no" voters change their vote to yes.
* The cumulative results from all letter ballots on the 802.15.4 draft
standard now stands at 158/19/19 for an affirmation ratio of 89.3%, a
response ratio of 83.4%, and an abstention ratio of 9.7%. This is as good
as it is likely to get since many of the no voters stopped participating
after the termination of 3a.
* There were 7 comments received. 6 were editorial and one was a repeat
of a previously submitted technical comment by a prior no voter
* D4 will be submitted to Sponsor Ballot without change.
A complete final report including responses to rejected comments can be
