Submission Slide 19 Ian Gifford, M/A-COM, Inc. Septmber 2000 doc.: IEEE 802.15-00/266r0 Liaison Observation #3 WG needs to use liaisons 15Sep00 BSIG-IEEE TG Chairs: • - [AR Ian Gifford] In a future IEEE-PM meeting, discuss the process by which the IEEE would maintain a spec after accreditation. (This may determine whether the IEEE should accredit BT 1.1 or a more stable version) • - [AR Ian Gifford] Review the status and milestones of IEEE's SDL model at the Scottsdale meeting. Estimate effort required by the SIG, should the SIG be interested in accelerating the schedule. Send meeting minutes to Francis. • - [ AR Francis] Discuss SDL model resource requirements ( probably from BTI) at one of the next PM meetings and decide whether the SIG can staff and commit to this activity. Communicate the decision back to Ian Gifford. • - [Ian Gifford]: Define with IEEE's attorney, a process or solution for ensuring that errata submitted by IEEE to the SIG do not violate the SIG's IP policy. • - [Tom Siep] Send minutes from IEEE radio2 study group meetings, to the SIG (Francis) • - [Francis & Ian] : Set up a follow-up meeting between SIG PMs and IEEE 802.15 chairs in late October.
