Action Item Review


Liaison Reports

Steve, reporting for 1076, has not been engaged with 1076 for a period but expects to be active again soon. He will discuss incorporating P1735 material, some by reference, into a future 1076 version. Dave and Joe confirmed that Steve may use the unpublished draft from our private Twiki to begin this work.

Jeff asked about 1800. As we have no 1800 liaison, Dave will discuss the 1735/1800 relationship with Stan and cc Karen Pierper.

Ballot Status

Recirculation ballot closed on September 25 with no changes to the previous votes (100% approval). The only comments were confirmation that the draft meets expectations. No additional ballot action is needed and we will proceed with submitting to RevCom.


Dave reviewed the current schedule:





Recirculation ballot




RevCom preparation




Revcom opportunity




General Status

Working Group work is complete.

Joe and Jonathan discussed the process from here:

  • Dave will create the RevCom pakage for RevCom submission. Dave will work with Jonathan on any questions related to this. The submission deadline is October 20, but Dave plans to submit this week.
  • The RevCom committee consists of 12-15 members who will review that the process and procedures were followed per our PAR and IEEE rules.
  • Typically one or two RevCom committee members will review the packet early and ask Dave or Stan any questions. Dave will work to resolve any issues. If needed, Dave will call an additional WG meeting if a technical discussion is required.
  • The RevCom meeting will be held December 10 where there will be a vote to recommend approval to the Standards Board. The Standards Board generally follows RevCom's recommendations. They meet and vote on December 11.
  • After the Standards Board approves, there is a publication cycle. Joe estimates publication will be complete by mid-March.

Dave will emaill status updates on all of the above to the email reflector.

Everyone is invited to continue using the email reflector to exchange ideas about a possible future PAR.
