2019-07-18 Jul 2019 Plenary Received - ask submitter if the proposed changes are all the needed changes or just an example of some PICs that are incorrect - Resposne at meeting was that this is just an example. There are many more PICs items to be adjusted Received
2019-09-17 Sep 2019 Interim The original request has been updated to be more specific about the inconsistency in the PICs. It was agreed that this item should be addressed on the next Revision of 802.1Q when the current outstanding amendments are rolled-up. It should be discussed within the WG that is hosting this revision. The item will remain open until the Revision project is opened. Technical experts review
2020-02-24 10 Mar 2020 Concall Topic for Q-revision project. A contribution with details on what to change or more precise instructions for the editor is needed. Technical experts review
2020-09-22 22 Sep 2020 Interim Commenter discussed with editor the best approach for updating Q-Rev. The editor requested that the commenter create a ballot comment against Q-Rev that includes a pointer to a contribution that indicates the specific inconsistencies and proposed remedies. The contribution may be in the form of an update Annex A. Technical experts review
2021-02-16 16 Feb 2021 Concall The submitter has received the source files for Annex A and is working with the editor of Q-Rev to incorporate the changes into the next draft of Q-Rev. Technical experts review
2021-03-09 9 Mar 2021 Plenary The submitter has modified the source files for Annex A to make the status column and the conformance column consistent across all entries. The editor believes there are more ways to make the entire PICs consistent, but at the risk of making the document unstable. It is suggested that introductory text be added to explain the notation further and perhaps consider footnotes after tables that require additional clarification. It was agreed that the new maintenance item required to complete the superseding of 802.1D is higher priority and could have a large impact on the PICs in general. This maintenance item will be revisited after the maintenance item to supersede 802.1D is completed. Technical experts review
2021-04-13 4 May 2021 Interim Included in Q-Rev/d0.4. Further discussion may be appropriate as some of the changes could be more easily dealt with by adopting a consistent approach to skipping a PCS table if a feature had not be implemented. Balloting
