[802.3AZ] task force update and interim meeting announcement
The interim meeting was productive and we closed all comments on Draft
1.3 of IEEE P802.3az.
The editors have been directed to produce Draft 1.4, which should be
available for review on
Tuesday, May 19th. The comment deadline for this draft is Wednesday,
June 3rd 11:59 PM AOE.
The proposed responses to comments will be available on Monday, June 8th.
Our goal is for Draft 1.4 to be technically complete. As our interim
meeting was held earlier than usual,
we have the opportunity to have an additional Task Force review cycle on
the draft prior to submitting it
for Working Group preview. To that effect, there will be a one-day
interim meeting on Thursday,
June 11th to be held at and hosted by Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory to resolve comments.
Teleconferencing will be available for that meeting. Details will be
sent as we get closer to the meeting
The goal of the additional one-day interim is to direct the editors to
produce Draft 1.5 as a result of the
Draft 1.4 review. If the draft meets the requirements for Working Group
preview, we will request the
Chair of the IEEE 802.3 Working Group to make it available for Working
Group preview, with the goal
of seeking Working Group authorization to conduct a Working Group ballot
at the close of the July
Working Group plenary meeting.
If you plan to attend the interim meeting in Berkeley, please send me
the following information
(no later than Tuesday, June 9th):
Once I have entered your information in our site access system, you
should receive a parking permit via
e-mail. There will be food and beverages available for purchase near the
meeting room. Parking is extremely
limited, so I recommend carpooling and arriving early.
Once again I would like to thank the editors and contributors for the
great work. Because of their efforts,
we are on track to request a Working Group ballot in July.
