the three groups.

Hayes: Will WPAN use thinned-down 802.11 MAC? Or

a completely different MAC? Which WG does this belong in?

Ian Gifford: Rev 8 of PAR. Geoff, Bill want copies of Rev 8.

The points of contention in PAR concern requirements for

discuss ongoing relationship with 802. Carlo agrees. Will arrange

and SEC subcommittee meeting.

Nikolich asks if Amer is recommendation termination of study group.

Amer says he will not ask for study group to be renewed.

Carlo says that it would require positive action to renew study group,

will not need a motion to disband.

Bob Love would like to see SEC take a more proactive position to

direct SG to resolve issues. Should meet Thursday PM to work with

membership of other WGs to resolve issues, to attempt to create a

positive outcome.

Carlson: Are people who participated in SG attending the plenary this week?

Amer: Some are some are not.

Carlson: Is it reasonable to have a meeting if some of the key participants in the SG

are not here, having not expected to hold a meeting this week?

Rigsbee: Take whole subject out to an SEC subcommittee to generate options.

Hal Keen: Points out that a Thursday afternoon meeting would exclude 802.1.

Carlo: Sets a time for SEC subcommittee meeting Tuesday 2:00 to discuss QoS/FC in

5.21 802.10 Registration Authority Request - Carlo 9:40 am

Removed from agenda. Will be carried forward to a future meeting.

Geoff Thompson, speaking as the chairman of the RAC: "nobody

told us anything, this places a substantial ongoing burden on the RAC.

RevCOM doesnít have a very strong filter in this area. Nobody gets

to add an item to the RAC without approval of the SEC."

5.22 WG Reflector membership Hayes 9:50.

802.11 has two reflectors. Received a request from an individual who

wished to join 802.11 WG reflector, presumably for the sole purpose

of obtaining access to drafts. Vic would like support for a policy of

being able to limit membership on reflectors.

Grow: Should be up to discretion of chair.

Rigsbee: Sees no harm in having two reflectors, one public, one for WG members.

Thompson: Generally acknowledges all requests to be added to reflector.

Russell: Limits access to information on website to active participants only.

Hal Keen: Should be left to individual WGs to decide.

Rigsbee: Should be some minimum threshold rules for membership/access.

Carlson: Our operating rules should say that access to reflectors/web sites is up to

discretion of chair.

Hayes: Agrees with Hal Keenís point. Chair should have the authority.

Marks: Would like to see any IEEE rules on this subject.

Carlo: Will take this issue up in an SEC subcommittee session tomorrow 11:00 am Tuesday.

draft a guideline.

5.3 International Survey Results - Jeffree 10:00 am Handouts

see file (ISOSurvey.pdf)


Carlo clarifies point from Robin Taskerís proposal that SC25 would be added to set of liason


Lidinsky: Congratulates Robin Tasker for generating proposal that solves the problems. Agrees with Harry Goldís


Rigsbee: Would adoption of Tasker proposal reduce the amount of JTC1 coordination?

Jeffree: Would reduce it to practically zero.

Rigsbee: Should it reduce the IPF?

Carlo: Donít bet on it.

Thompson: Agrees with Lidinsky. Add to proposal that liason letter should be sent when PAR is approved.

Jeffree: Agrees.

Carlo: Set a time of 3:00 Wednesday afternoon to discuss/formulate motion.

5.31 ARC process Hal Keen 10:28 am

The question is what is an ARC, and how to get one?

An Object Identifier ARC may be useful, for instance for management.

ANSI assigns them for our projects.

Hal to freshen document which explains ARCs and how to get them, add to website.

Thompson: Suggests that ARC assignments be included in 802 Overview and Architecture.

BREAK at 10:30 am.

Meeting reconvenes at 10:40 am.

Carlo reviews SEC meeting attendance. Asks that it be included in minutes. Notes that Paul Eastman is no

longer a voting member of the SEC.

Geoff asks that Tuesday morning topics be moved.

Lidinisky asks if there are any requests for items for a Tech Plenary Wednesday morning?

No requests.

Carlo suggests moving SEC business meetings from Tuesday am to Wednesday at 4:00 (AlphaGraphics and Reflector)

Alphagraphics wed at 4:00, reflector Wednesday at 5:00.

5.32 802.5t Ballot resolution Process on DisApproval Vote Love 10:45 am

Question came up with respect to ballot disapproval vote. When does conversion from disapprove to approve get noted?

Suggestion that Disapproval gets changed to Approved based on comment resolution/pending recirc with notification to IEEE.

Thompson: This engendered discussion with Mike Binder, but RevCom was not included in discussion. Mikeís suggestion

would make things more clear cut. Binder doesnít get to make a rule on his own.

Love: Satistified with current status of this issue.

5.33 Draft Standard availability process. Pribula 10:49 am

Needs pointer to draft, needs password, access information.

Thompson: You get sent a Working Group ballot notice from 802.3 which has pointer, login, password.

Pribula: Thatís okay, but not all groups do this.

Carlo: The question is, how to make communication with Denise more specific.

email with subject line saying "updated draft for 802.X available".

Love: We should be aware that IEEE electronic distribution is mainstream.

Grow: Must make full draft available, not just change pages.

Thompson: Need standardized mail headers, but not a slew of specialized mailings.

Carlo: Please send a specific email to Denise.

Zelenty: Direct notice to Denise is helpful.

Thompson/Carlo: All drafts should be available for sale.

Carlo: Direct and explicit notice necessary.

Rigsbee: Multiple announcements, comment availability, change pages, drafts, etc.

Love: Denise needs to define a procedure that works for her, and up to us (all WGs) to follow it.

Carlo: When you have a draft for sale, send an email to Denise with pointer, login, password.

Zelenty: Posted and available for sale within 2 weeks.

Thompson: 2 weeks is too long. 15 day recirculation requires faster turn around so that

draft is not obsolete.

5.34 SEC Reflector Frazier 11:00 am

Frazier suggests cutting over next week.

Frazier will copy archive.

Action Item: Frazier to copy 802exec reflector archive to IEEE web server, activate

No objection to moving reflector.

5.35 SEC web site Frazier 11:01 am

Frazier says that SEC private web site has been set up.

Will distribute username/password via mail slots.

5.36 Web pointers vs attached files Carlo 11:02 am

Donít use attachments for simple files.

Maybe set up server for this meeting.

5.37 use of by vendor Hayes 11:03 am

A vendor is using Can we do anything?

IEEE has no trademark process for things like this.

Carlo will bring this issue up again at Stds Board.

Carlo assigns action item to Frazier to register and

Will need motion on Thursday to authorize expense. How about motion today.

Moved: Lidinsky

Second: Nikolich

Authorize Frazier to spend up to $1000 to obtain rights to www.802.??? or

as appropriate domain names.

SEC Motion 7/0/3 passes at 11:06 am.

Action Item: Frazier to register and and domain names.

5.38 AlphaGraphics Rigsbee 11:07 am

Staff turn over at AlphaGraphics causing problems. Lost drafts, etc. Ongoing problem.

Use of the service is diminishing. Should we continue doing it all?

Rigsbee recommends scrapping AlphaGraphics

SEC Motion:

Do not renew AlphaGraphics Agreement.

Assist IEEE in providing an alternative distribution service.

Moved: Rigsbee

Second: Lidinsky

Hayes: What service do we have to establish?

Rigsbee/Grow: Distribution of minutes and other documents via www.

Thompson: Add "for documents available only in hardcopy". Friendly ammendment, accepted.

Motion as ammended:

Do not renew AlphaGraphics Agreement.

Assist IEEE in providing an alternative distribution service,

for documents available only in hardcopy.

Frazier: If it is not in softcopy, scan it. WG scans it and posts it on www site.

Thompson: Examples of unsuccessful attempts to get documents from AlphaGraphics.

Vote on Rigsbee/Lidinsky motion: 11/0/0 Passes 11:15 am.

Carlo: subject of 4:00 Wednesday business meeting is what to do with old materials?

5.39 Y2K Issues with 802 Standards Carlo 11:16 am

Carlo: Check standards for Y2K compliance? Do any standards need revision because of Y2K issues.

Lidinsky: Y2K is a computer problem, not a people problem.

Grow: Except for MIB objects.

5.4 802.3ab (1000BASE-T) Thompson 11:23 am
