Re: [802SEC] +++ 10 day EC email ballot to approve 802.24 formation press release +++


The timing is delayed for a variety of reasons. My expectation is that it will go out within a 2 weeks.

Likely, this will arrive before the end of November, so IMHO it is OK to say that first documents will arrive in November.

I don't want to delay this any longer (it is already months late, due to an extremely full work schedule for me in the last few months). If we delay it and add new information, then there will be a new round of balloting to approve it.

It is certainly too late to drive attendance at this session, but I expect to have many more sessions as well as teleconference meetings, so improving interest in the group is still good.

However, your points are well taken. If we are indeed successful in getting some documents written and approved, I think an follow-up press release with the elections, results of the session and documents produced would be a good idea.
