Re: [802SEC] +++ LMSC P&P Revision Ballot +++ Creation of Operations Manual

Fellow EC members,


As previously noted this ballot closes at the end of today.  A comment
resolution call is scheduled for 6/2/08 and I require some time to
process the comments.  So far I have received comments from:


            Bruce Kraemer

            David Law


Please note that while I will accept comments and process them after the
end of the ballot, the whole point of initiating the ballot early is to
have time to resolve the comments.  This is a complex ballot, and
resolving comments during the next LMSC plenary session is difficult at
best.  We have two comment resolution teleconference scheduled, and I
need time to process comments and proposed resolutions prior to each
teleconference.  I ask all EC members to please participate in the
process and get their comments in to me in as timely a fashion as
possible.  Waiting till the week before the plenary isn't reasonable or
fair to the rest of the EC if you want them to reach a consensus
including your opinions.


I'm hoping to see a massive influx of comments before the end of the
day.  If not, then please get me your inputs as soon as possible after
the close of the ballot.


Best regards as always,

Dear EC members,




Attached you will find the ballot document for an LMSC P&P revision
ballot titled 'Creation of Operations Manual'. This ballot was approved
at the Friday March 21, 2008 EC meeting. The actual revisions to the P&P
/ OM are in the EC e-mail archive as indicated in the ballot document.
The text is identical to that presented at the meeting.  The purpose and
rationale for the ballot are as given in the attached ballot document
but relates to objections AudCom had to our P&P and a desire to address
the objections before the end of the year deadline imposed by AudCom.


There are some differences in this ballot relative to prior P&P revision
ballots.  I've allowed closer to 45 days because the changes involved
are so extensive.  I have attached a ballot response form and request
that all EC members use it to ease the task of compiling and addressing
comments.  The ballot response form that is in Excel. I recognize
different WG have different traditions about ballot response forms, and
not everyone will be pleased with my selection.  But since I will bear
the brunt of compiling the comments I ask that you please work with me
on this.


Finally I am scheduling two comment resolution teleconferences prior to
the July Plenary.  The first will be a week after the close of the
ballot, and the second will be about a month after that.  Here are the



Ballot Opens: April 9, 2008


Ballot Closes: June 24, 2007 11:59 PM EDT. 


First Ballot Resolution Teleconference:  May 30th, 2008 @ 11 AM EDT


Second Ballot Resolution Teleconference:  June 27th, 2008 @ 11 AM EDT


Details on the ballot resolution teleconferences will be provided at a
later date.


WG chairs, please distribute this P&P revision ballot to your WG, and
invite them to comment through you. 




Thanks & Regards,
