[802SEC] Working Group recirculation ballot of P802-REV/D1.4



*WG Chairs please note:* As with previous ballots, please coordinate
responses from your WG members and submit a single ballot if at all

This Email is attached to an official 802.1 Working Group recirculation
ballot form for P802-REV/D1.4 - Overview and Architecture. As this is a
Working Group ballot, only 802.1 voting members and liaisons are entitled
to vote; however, any non-voting participants in the activities of 802.1
may submit a "Comment Only" ballot on the draft. In accordance with
established practice in 802 and the IEEE, all comments received, whether
from voters or non-voters, are given due consideration during the Ballot
resolution process.

NOTE: As this is a formal WG ballot, if you vote "Approve" you are stating
that, in your professional opinion, you consider the document to be
technically complete, and ready for Sponsor ballot (i.e., the document is
essentially ready for publication, apart from final editing for style,
etc.). Hence, sending in an "approve" ballot response within a small number
of minutes of the ballot start time cannot possibly mean that the voter has
given the document the level of professional consideration necessary to
make such a judgment. I believe the record so far was less than 10 minutes
between posting the draft and ballot announcement, and receiving the first
"Approve" - and that was on a document That contained Editor's notes
indicating areas where work needed to be done!

As this is a recirculation ballot, some different rules apply:

- The balloting period is a minimum of 15 days.

- The subject matter of the ballot is NOT the entire document; the scope of
this ballot is ONLY those changes to the draft that were made in order to
resolve the ballot comments on the previous draft, any ballot resolutions
that may have been incorrectly applied, and any ballot comments that may
have been rejected.

- You need to return a ballot ONLY if you wish to change your previous vote
on P802.  If you do not return a ballot, your previous vote will apply

- Responses are particularly solicited from those voters that made
Disapprove votes on the previous ballot, in order to confirm whether or not
the agreed ballot resolutions address their concerns. To put it more
definitely, if you are an 802.1 voting member who has submitted a previous
Disapprove, we will have to hound you until we receive a response.

The 802.1 voting members that are entitled to a vote on this ballot are as
follows (NOTE: for a WG ballot, the voting population is fixed at the start
of the ballot, and does not change during any subsequent recirculation
ballots, regardless of any membership changes over the course of the
balloting cycle):

It should be noted that the ongoing retention of 802.1 voting rights is
predicated on active participation in Working Group ballots.  Active
participation is defined to be returning ballot forms in two out of the
last three Working Group ballots. The 802 Operating Rules allow abstention
for any cause other than "lack of technical expertise" to be treated as
though it were a failure to respond to a ballot. 802.1 applies this rule.

The other (non-802.1) Working Groups are entitled to vote via their WG

The closing date of this ballot is:

         6th July 2012
