[802SEC] 802.11z has met the conditional requirements to proceed to Sponsor Ballot

Dear EC members,

I am pleased to report that 802.11z has met the conditions required to proceed to Sponsor Ballot.

The 802.11z project (Tunneled Direct Link for peer to peer connections) was granted conditional approval to move to Sponsor Ballot by LMSC during the July 2009 Plenary meeting.

This email contains a summary report in compliance with Clause 13 of the LMSC Operations Manual.

WG11 approved all comment resolutions and the final report in our plenary concluded Friday September 25. Complete details can be found in the report at:

a) Recirculation ballot is completed.
*         Condition met: Recirculation ballot LB157 completed on August 26, 2009

b) After resolution of the recirculation ballot is completed, the approval percentage is at least 75% and there are no new valid DISAPPROVE votes.
*         Condition met:  The approval percentage is 96%.   There were no new valid DISAPPROVE votes.

c) No technical changes, as determined by the WG Chair, were made as a result of the recirculation ballot.
*         Condition met:  The comment resolutions in the last recirculation ballot (LB157) did not result in any changes to the draft.

d) No new valid DISAPPROVE comments on new issues that are not resolved to the satisfaction of the submitter from existing DISAPPROVE voters.
*         Condition met:  There were no new valid DISAPPROVE comments.

e) If the WG Chair determines that there is a new invalid DISAPPROVE comment or vote, the WG Chair shall promptly provide details to the Sponsor.
*         Answer: There were no new invalid DISAPPROVE comments.
o         There were no new invalid DISAPPROVE votes.

f) The WG Chair shall immediately report the results of the ballot to the Sponsor including: the date the ballot closed, vote tally and comments associated with any remaining disapproves (valid and invalid), the WG responses and the rationale for ruling any vote invalid.

*          The ballot closed on:  August 26, 2009.
*          The vote tally is: Approve 187, Disapprove 8, Abstain 38.

The composite of all unsatisfied comments and the resolutions approved by the comment resolution committee received during working group ballot may be found in the 11-09-879r7 report (URL above) on page 8 but are also included here.


Over the next few days, please indicate if you have any comments or questions.
