I would like to now proceed to the EC electronic ballot on the attached updated draft IEEE P802.3bz 2.5/5GBASE-T project update press release I circulated on Friday 22nd May for comment. I've also attached a diff to the draft I circulated then, my thanks to those that provided comments. The most significant change is the addition of a quote from Adrian Stephens.
One of the comments I received during the draft review was that it is unusual for us to issue a press release at a step other that a process step (PAR approval, Working Group ballot, etc.). In this particular case I believe it is justified based on the substantial interest in this activity from industry, and the activity making significant progress, as well as one of the primary application of this IEEE 802.3 project the support of IEEE 802.11, providing the opportunity to demonstrate cross IEEE 802 collaboration.
Paul has delegated the conduct of the EC electronic ballot on the following motion to me. To ensure this release is issued as soon as practical I'm announcing the possibility of an 'early close' to this ballot (see below).
The EC supports the IEEE P802.3bz 2.5/5GBASE-T project update press release, to be released with editorial changes as deemed necessary.
Move: David Law
Second: John D'Ambrosia
Start of ballot: Friday 29th May
Close of ballot: Sunday 7th June, 11:59PM AOE
Early close: As required in subclause 4.1.2 'Voting rules' of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) Operations Manual, this is notice that, to ensure the release is provided in a timely manner, this ballot may close early once sufficient responses are received to clearly decide a matter.
Sufficient responses to clearly decide this matter will be based on the required majority for a motion under subclause 7.1.1 'Actions requiring approval by a majority vote' item (h), 'Other motions brought to the floor by members (when deemed in order by the Sponsor Chair)' of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) Policies and Procedures.
