[802SEC] disbanding 802.5
Thanks for volunteering to make the motion, but we may have to postpone the
ballot. After I posted the disband email, I was informed by SA staff that
some 802.5 documents may not be withdrawn yet, they are still viable until
the end of 2008. If this is the case, we can't disband 802.5 yet. I have
the 802 staff liaisons, Mike Kipness and Kathryn Cush, checking in to the
status of the documents for me.

If David doesn't confirm and you want to get going with the ballot, I'm
willing to make the motion. An 802.3 interim concluded this afternoon on
the East Coast so he might be in transit.

Dear EC Members,
The time has come to disband the 802.5 Working Group. I have checked
with the hibernating 802.5 WG chair, Bob Love, and he confirmed there is
no interest in keeping the WG in hibernation. To my knowledge, all the
802.5 standards have been withdrawn, nor due any of the 802.5 LOAs
(http://standards.ieee.org/db/patents/pat802_5.html) have an impact on
any other 802 documents.
The 802 P&P state:
"188.8.131.52 Disbanding a WG After all standards, recommended practices, and
Technical Reports for which a hibernating WG is responsible are
withdrawn or transferred to another group or groups, an EC electronic
ballot of 30 days minimum duration will be conducted to determine
whether the hibernating WG will be disbanded. If the EC electronic
ballot on disbanding the group passes, the WG is disbanded. If the
ballot fails, then the EC Chair shall determine a future date when the
disbanding of the group will be reballoted."
I believe David Law is willing to make the motion to disband 802.5
(please confirm David), I will need a second to begin the 30 day
electronic ballot. Any takers?
