[802SEC] 802.11u has met the Clause 13 requirements to proceed to Sponsor Ballot

Dear EC members,

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

The 802.11u project (Interworking with External Networks) was one of four 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.

Complete details can be found at:
In the 802.11 plenary held Friday September 25th WG approval for the comment resolutions was 35/0/1 and for the EC report 39/0/0.

a) Recirculation ballot is completed.
*         Condition met:  recirculation ballot LB156 completed on August 18, 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 93%.   There was initially1 new valid DISAPPROVE vote.  Following discussions in TGu, the voter's single required comment was changed to not required (see email on slide #5). Hence, there were no comments which requested the TGu to change the draft.

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 did not approve 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 initially 4 new required comments from 1 existing DISAPPROVE voter.  These were subsequently changed to "not required" by the voter (see email on slide #8). The resolution of these comments found in 11-09-0940r7, did not result in any change to the draft.

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 or 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 18, 2009.
*          The vote tally is: Approve 148, Disapprove 11, Abstain 35.

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 11-09-715r9 report on page 15 (URL above) but are included here.

Over the next few days, please indicate if you have any comments or questions.
Sponsor Ballot group formation will close on Thursday October 1. Preparations will be made to initiate a Sponsor Ballot shortly after October 1.
