[STDS-802-16] guidance on unofficial participation in IEEE-SA Sponsor Ballot Recirc for P802.16Rev2



I want to inform you that the IEEE 802.16 Revision 2 draft P802.16Rev2/D7 is in Sponsor Ballot recirc now, having opened on October 8 and closing on October 29, 23:59 EST  (not AOE!).  Members of the Sponsor Ballot Group should already know this fact.  This note is for those of you who wish to participate and are not a member of the Sponsor Ballot Group or wish to use an alternative to the official comment submittal process.


If you are a member of the Sponsor Ballot Group, you should have already been provided with instructions on participating using IEEE-SA's myBallot system. You may enter your comments individually through the myBallot web page, or you may upload a group of comments using IEEE-SA's specified XLS, CSV, or XML templates. When the ballot closes, all of these comments will be automatically transferred into Commentary format for WG review and resolution. We will be providing an opportunity for reply comments prior to Session #58.

If you are not a member of the Sponsor Ballot Group, you are not entitled to vote. However, you may submit comments. These should be prepared in Commentary using the appropriate "Ballot ID" and submitted to the 802.16 upload directory < >, specifically to "sb_16Rev2".

Sponsor Ballot Group members may also submit comments in Commentary according to this procedure. However, please be aware that no comments uploaded to the WG upload directories will be considered as part of a Disapprove vote. For any comment to be considered as a valid element of a DISAPPROVE VOTE, the comment must be entered into the myBallot database by the voter!   Also please do not submit the exact same  comments to both the myBallot database and to the upload directory.


Finally, if necessary, your comments may refer to an uploaded contribution document. Contributions must follow the usual WG submission procedures <>. In order to ensure that all parties to the Sponsor Ballot are explicitly aware of your contribution and where to find it, it is essential that you refer to it properly, by document number (not by file name) in your comment. Upload your contribution to the upload directory for Maintenance.
