[802SEC] Conditions for 802.11 TGs to move to Sponsor ballot have bben met

Dear EC,

During the July 2010 closing plenary the IEEE 802 EC granted conditional approval to P802.11s (Mesh networking) to proceed to sponsor ballot.
*          Based upon the results of the most recent WG 802.11 recirculation ballot (LB166) on P802.11s_D7.0 the terms of the conditional approval have been met.
*          Conditional approval checklist status is summarized below.
*          The task group met in September and full details are to be found in the updated EC presentation at

*          As per LMSC OM Clause 14:
*          a) Recirculation ballot is completed. Generally, the recirculation ballot and resolution should occur in accordance with the schedule presented at the time of conditional approval.
-         The Ballot completed August 12, in accordance with the schedule presented to the EC in document 11-10/0695r04.
*          b) After resolution of the recirculation ballot is completed, the approval percentage is at least 75% and there are no new valid DISAPPROVE votes.
-         The approval percentage is 95%
-         There are no new valid disapprove votes.
*          c) No technical changes, as determined by the WG Chair, were made as a result of the recirculation ballot.
-         No technical changes were made as a result of the recirculation ballot.
*          d) No new valid DISAPPROVE comments on new issues that are not resolved to the satisfaction of the submitter from existing DISAPPROVE voters
-         Initially in LB166, there were 11 comments received, of which 4 were associated with 1 no voter. Those comments were subsequently withdrawn.
-         The net result was that there are no new 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.
-         There were no new invalid disapprove comments.
-         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 2010-8-12
-         The comments associated with remaining disapproves and the WG responses are in   on slide 8
-         As indicated above, one negative vote received in the recirculation was subsequently changed by the voter to approve coincident with withdrawal of all disapprove comments from that recirculation.

*          The sponsor ballot group formation closed on Sept 13.
*          We expect to start the first sponsor ballot within the next week.
