[802SEC] Formation of ad-hoc group to improve ballot participation
There is the feeling among many that active participation in ballots
(i.e., reading and providing actionable comments) from a wide variety of
technical individuals is an important part of the standards development
However, it appears that the active participation we get in ballots is
only a small fraction of the potential pool of participants who would be
able to provide quality comments and proposed solutions (which includes
ones for which the group might disagree).
I am forming an ad-hoc to brainstorm ideas with which we might encourage
broader participation in our balloting process.
An example of a proposals is:
- Request that individuals read and focus on specific section (and can
read more), ensuring that each section has multiple requested reviewers.
I hope that we come up with a variety of ideas as it is likely that one
"solution" won't fit all (they rarely do).
Please respond to me if you would like to join this ad-hoc or if you
have any ideas.
You don't need to attend any meeting to suggest an idea or complain
about an idea we develop.
We are a volunteer organization, so these methods should focus on
encouragement and not rely on enforcement.
