Adrian,---------- This email is sent from the 802 Executive Committee email reflector. This list is maintained by Listserv.
Thanks. That figure is worth a thousand email replies.
Basically, someone losing "2 of 4" status would be dropped from the Voter category in one of two distinct conditions:
(a) has participated in 0 of 4
(b) has participated in 1 of 4
It seems that 802.11 practice is to categorize someone in either condition into the state "0 of 4". The problem here is with case (b). An individual who has participated in 1 of 4 sessions is treated as if she had participated in 0 of 4. Essentially, 802.11 erases her remaining valid session participation credit. I don't know why, but, as far as I can tell, this is some kind of penalty for having lost her membership. Then, when she later turns up at a plenary, having validly participated in 2 of 4 per the rules, she is denied membership. This contradicts her rights under the rules ("membership in a WG is established by achieving participation credit at the sessions of the WG for two out of the last four plenary sessions; one duly constituted recent interim ...").
I don't see anything in the rules that allows the WG to strip a participant of validly earned participation credit and deny membership on those grounds. That's why I think that membership would be granted on appeal.
