Subject: [802SEC] +++ EC Ballot closing Friday Nov 29 - liaison motion regarding 1905.1a +++
Dear EC members,
During a joint 802.1/802.11 session Thursday morning we discussed the fact that 1905.1 has a revision PAR
on the December NesCom agenda and agreed that we should become involved in the
project as soon as possible. The joint session unanimously approved the following motion.
Moved, that the Chair of IEEE 802 requests a liaison be established with IEEE 1905.1a.
Both Tony and I forgot to place the item on the closing EC agenda.
To remedy the situation, Paul has authorized me to conduct a 10 day eballot on the motion below.
A draft of the liaison letter is included below the motion.
