Re: FW: IEEE 802 & IPF
To debate this issue, I need to fully understand the specifics of the
IPF. I haven't been able to locate any information on this topic.
For example, I'd like to see the current agreement between 802 and
JTC1. I'd also like answers to the following questions (which might
be answered in the agreement):
-Exactly what is JTC1?
-Exactly what does JTC1 do with our money?
-Aside from the IPF, what is the relationship between 802 and JTC1?
-What is the history of the IPF donation to JTC1:
-Who in 802 agreed to the fund transfer?
-When did the IPF start?
