6 Submission doc.: IEEE 802.11-08/01125r0September 2008 Nancy Cam-Winget (Cisco Systems)Slide 6 IEEE Publication Status IEEE 802.11-2007 published and for sale on IEEE web –Published in June 2007 –Combines all existing amendments and includes maintenance work by TGma Publications completed for 802.11k and 802.11r 11n has gone through Mandatory Editorial Coordination (08-1045)

7 Submission doc.: IEEE 802.11-08/01125r0 Alignment Process for 802.11k & 802.11r The 08/0644r2 Numbering Spreadsheet has all changes from publication of 11k and 11r (and 11y D11.0 and 11n D6.01) September 2008 Nancy Cam-Winget (Cisco Systems)Slide 7

8 Submission doc.: IEEE 802.11-08/01125r0 Amendment & other ordering notes Editors define publication order independent of working group public timelines: –Since official timeline is volatile and moves around –Publication order helps provide stability in amendment numbering, figures, clauses and other numbering assignments –Editors are committed to maintain a rational publication order Numbering spreadsheet 08/0644: –Succeeding amendments to do their respective updates –Must match the official timeline September 2008

9 Submission doc.: IEEE 802.11-08/01125r0 Publications: lessons learned When quoting baseline text inaccurately, the baseline text is changed whether or not the changes were marked. The IEEE staff will actually do the appropriate changes as if the task group had actually intended to change the baseline. –Drafts can minimally quote baseline text to minimize such changes –Should revisit the decision to include full context during insertion Full Annex titles have to be shown in the amendment; more importantly included normative vs. informative –TGk inadvertently changed Annex A to be fully informative –TGr battled to fix Annex A but caused ripples –In editors operations manual and during balloting, should comment that Annexes should be fully titled with good reason to vote No in balloting Nancy Cam-Winget (Cisco Systems)Slide 9 September 2008

10 Submission doc.: IEEE 802.11-08/01125r0 Publications: lessons learned (contd) Acronym rules are inconsistent –Styleguide doesnt include definitions –Every document is treated as standalone, thus first acronym reference must be spelled out. Even though, other amendments or baseline may have defined and used the acronym earlier. –Goal should be to have as few changes between the final balloted amendment and final published amendment. How do we deal with subjective decisions made by the IEEE copy editors as their styles vary? Booleans should be capitalized: TRUE and FALSE –Values are set to vs. is (raise the issue with Style Guide update) Nancy Cam-Winget (Cisco Systems)Slide 10 September 2008

11 Submission doc.: IEEE 802.11-08/01125r0 Publication Work Plan Note: to be included in the editors operations manual Here is the workflow we have used for a number of years with IEEE staff on publication of 802.11 publications: 1.Editors provide FRAME source and any freestanding graphics to staff at time of REVCOM submission. – DONE for both 802.11k and 802.11r. 2.Editors provide a list of requests editorial corrections no later than REVCOM approval date. – Not yet done by either editor. 802.11k is almost ready for submission. The 802.11r editor intends to wait until reviewing a publication draft for 802.11k to submit the draft since it is very dependent on the 802.11k text. 3.Staff prepares a publication draft and highlights changes they have made and questions they need addressed or confirmed. This draft is sent to Task Group Editor and the Working Group Technical Editor (me). This typically occurs about 2-3 weeks after approval for publication, since the preparation work is usually (but not always) begun ahead of approval. This is also typically the draft peer reviewed by IEEE staff. 4.The Task Group Editor responds to all questions on domain specific questions, with copy to Working Group editor (me). This typically takes about 3-5 days. 5.The Working Group Technical Editor reviews responses from the Task Group editor, completes any responses, and provides a list of WG officers and voting members valid for the document as of the opening day of the Sponsor ballot. This typically only takes one additional day from the prior step as most of the work is done in parallel by the two editors. 6.Final draft is submitted by the IEEE staff to Working Group Technical Editor and Task Group Editor for sign-off. Any changes from the responses or IEEE peer review are highlighted and explained. This typically takes only one or two days more after the responses are received from the editors. 7.Task Group Editor gives final approval. No changes are expected. This usually occurs within 24 hours. 8.Working Group Technical Editor signs off and provides draft to Working Group Chair. No changes are expected. This usually occurs within 24 hours and in parallel with the previous step. 9.Working Group Chair sends email to sponsor and IEEE staff letting them know the Working Group has signed off on the publication process.

12 Submission doc.: IEEE 802.11-08/01125r0 Numbering of Annexes and Clauses Proposal: TGMb will fix the ordering of annexes –Ample bad precedent set by 11k –Bibliography should be the final annex per IEEE Standards Style Guide Clause numbering has similar issue during rollup –TGn clause 3a, 11r clause 11a September 2008 Nancy Cam-Winget (Cisco Systems)Slide 12

13 Submission doc.: IEEE 802.11-08/01125r0 Overlapping Text Issues Extended Capabilities IE conflicts –The point is that having an Extended Capability indication does not necessarily mean the Extended Capability IE is present in beacon frames, etc. Nancy Cam-Winget (Cisco Systems)Slide 13 September 2008

14 Submission doc.: IEEE 802.11-08/01125r0 Nancy Cam-Winget (Cisco Systems)Slide 14 ANA Announcements Current ANA announced to group is 802.11-08-0227r1. –See –All new requests received by end of meeting will be uploaded and announced via 802.11 WG reflector after the editors conference call #1 No requests have been received directly from editors this week and acted on in preparation for publishing next version. Others as may arise before the editors conference call #1 will be included Procedure for ANA is contained in 07/0827r0. –See Editorial Guidance –ANA assignments should be done at the time of moving from WG LB to Sponsor ballot. –If a resource number is not in the ANA Database, please use in drafts! –Editors to replace any ANA controlled resources numbers with upon incorporation of material into drafts.
