Re: [802.3_1PPODL] IEEE P802.3bu 1-Pair Power over Data Lines (PoDL) 3rd Sponsor recirculation ballot results

Hi Geoff,

Motion #4 in the October meeting:

"Move that The IEEE P802.3bu Task Force chair is authorized by the Task Force to submit Draft 3.3 to RevCom as a contingent submission."

The fact that our contingency has been met (D3.3 passed without new negatives or need for any substantive technical change) creates a question that I am seeking resolution to by David Law.

If in fact, we have met all necessary requirements (including a motion to advance to RevCom), there may be no need to hold a Task Force meeting in San Antonio. I am seeking clarification on this question right now. Its possible that via Motion 4, the wheels have been set in motion already.

Upon confirmation of the answer to my question, I will be posting a notification to the Task Force on this reflector.

Chair, IEEE P802.3bu PoDL Task Force

Dear Task Force Participants,

As you can see from the email below, the IEEE P802.3bu 3rd Sponsor Ballot Recirculation passed successfully with zero comments.

This means there will be no comment resolution to perform at the upcoming meeting on Monday, November 7th.

We will have work to do however. The primary activity of the Task Force on Monday will be to produce a motion to request 802.3 approve our request to advance to RevCom. The DRAFT text of that motion will be presented at the meeting which will occur on Monday at 13:00 in San Antonio FOR CONSIDERATION, MODIFACATION AND VOTE FOR APPROVAL.

I will be posting the agenda for next week's meeting within the next few days.

Congratulations on producing a successful draft and I look forward to seeing you in San Antonio.

Safe Travels,

Dan Dove
