There was one comment received from Geoff Thompson that reads as follows, a number of EC members indicated support for the comment.


I believe that the way the document is mentioned in the release is not the proper form.

It says:
	"IEEE 802.3bm is available for purchase at the IEEE Standards Store."

We have traditionally be told that the proper way to refer to such a document was:
	"P802.3bm/Dn.n" for an unapproved draft.
	"IEEE Std 802.3bm" for an approved standard.

Please fix (or if the rules have changed let me and our colleagues know).


Unfortunately the resolution of this comment was initially delayed by the attachment of a confidentially statement to an email in the exchange, this was subsequently resolved. At that point the discussion became a broader question as to if the release should be issued shortly after approval, and reference the approved draft, or should be delayed until the publication of the standard (expected early April) and reference the standard in the IEEE Standards Store. The second option was selected and the attached release will be issued shortly after publication of the IEEE Std 802.3bm 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s Optical Ethernet standard. As can be seen in the attached change bar version of the draft release, the one change is to refer to the published standard in the IEEE Standards Store as 'IEEE Std 802.3bm' as suggested in the comment.
