[STDS-802-3-25G] FW: [STDS-802-3] IEEE P802.3by 25 Gb/s Ethernet 2nd Sponsor recirculation ballot results

Forwarding on to the 3by reflectorŠ

Congratulations to the 802.3by Task Force, we are done our work!  With the
closure of the 2nd recirculation sponsor ballot on Friday with no new
comments and with no negative votes, the task force work is complete.  The
final approval process will now commence.

I¹ve said it before and I¹ll say it again, there has been significant work
put in here by many but particularly the editorial team.  A huge thank you
to Matt Brown, as Chief Editor, and his editorial team of Adee Ran, Arthur
Marris, Chris Diminico, and Jonathan King.

We are canceling the additional interim, scheduled for Wed Apr 20th.  It
was always known we might cancel this if there was no work to accomplish
and that is how it has worked out.

I¹ll update the group more as we get closer to final approval and

Chair, IEEE P802.3by 25 Gb/s Ethernet Task Force
