Re: [802SEC] Clause 19 Report regarding P802.11y to Sponsor Ballot


In reading the ballot report, I think it says that all comments
accompanying the new negative ballot were on unchanged text.  

1.  To be ruled invalid, the comments also must not be related to
changed text, and I didn't find that assurance in the report.  Are all
comments also not related to changes in the balloted draft?

2.  The report indicates that changes were agreed to be made in response
to those out of scope comments.  All substantive changes must be
recirculated.  Are any of the changes in response to these comments

3.  The report does not indicate if approve comments were submitted and
what the disposition of those comments was.  Were any substantive
changes made to the draft in response to Approve comments or for any
other reason?

4.  If the answer to #1 is yes and #2 and #3 is no, then I don't see any
reason why an additional recirculation is required.  

5.  For purposes of the conditional approval, it isn't relevant, but I
can't figure out how the invalid Disapprove was counted.  Per the SASB
Operations Manual, if the new Disapprove vote is only based on
approved portions of the document and the voter does not change the
negative ballot when informed the comments are invalid, the Disapprove
vote then becomes a Disapprove without comments.  The tally does not
indicate a Disapprove without comment, was the "invalid Disapprove"
counted as a Disapprove without comment?
