With the PAR making the expected progress, the GRIDMAN Task Group (TG) met to further progress the background material. The TG report summarizes the activity and progress. The TG decided to develop a System Requirements Document (SRD) and created an initial draft. It developed a Call for Contributions toward Session #104 but deferred release of that Call for Contributions pending aproval of the PAR. The TG scheduled a teleconference for 30 June, at which time the PAR status will be known, to plan the Session #104 agenda and help bring new participants up to date.
Update: The P802.16s project was authorized on 2016-06-30.

About IEEE 802.16
The IEEE 802.16 Working Group on Broadband Wireless Access Standards has developed and is responsible for maintaining the WirelessMAN® standards of IEEE 802.16 and 802.16.1 for wireless metropolitan area networks. The IEEE 802.16 Working Group is a unit of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee, the premier transnational forum for wired and wireless network standardization. A list of IEEE 802.16 standards and drafts is available on-line, as is an archive of previous Session Reports. The IEEE 802.16 Interactive Calendar includes sessions and deadlines.
"802.16 News" Mailing List
The "802.16 News" mailing list ("stds-802-16-news") has the sole purpose of distributing major announcements related to the Working Group. Those interested in following the progress of the group but not in the day-to-day details may wish to subscribe. Only the Working Group Chair is eligible to post to the list, and mailings will be rare: once after each bimonthly session and additionally for major news, such as the approval of a new standard. Those subscribing to the stds-802-16 mailing list, for active Working Group participants, need not subscribe to stds-802-16-news since the postings will be redundant.
