  15. September 2013 Reflector Updates • Each editor is expected to be on the reflector and current. • If you didn’t receive the meeting notice from the reflector, please send email to adrian.p.stephens@intel.com • To be updated: • None Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 7/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  16. September 2013 IEEE Publication Status • Publication completed for 802.11-2012 March 30, 2012 • Publication of 11ae announced April 10, 2012 • Publication of 11aa announced June 5, 2012 • Publication of 11ad announced December 28, 2012 Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 8/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  17. 11ac publication process • Not sure whether D7.0 or D8.0 will be the last draft. • Final draft should be available mid-November (about 350 pages) • The expected approval is at RevCom December 5, and publication could be eight weeks after that (holidays are in the middle) Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 9/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  18. Numbering Alignment Process • Update from all published standards. Posted as 802.11-11/1149r29 (2013 Feb 27) • 802.11-2012 is numbering baseline. 11acD5.0 went first, then 11afD3.0 , 11ah, 11ai • TG editor will be responsible for ensuring their column represents their latest draft • WG editor will update any “changes pending” columns and summarize status to editors • Action: Robert to update .11ac to D7.0 Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 10/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  19. 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 802.11-11/1149: • Succeeding amendments to do their respective updates • Must match the official timeline after plenaries Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 11/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  20. MDR Status • 802.11 Working Group Mandatory Draft Review 802.11-11/615r4 documents the process. There is an r5. MDR now in the 802.11 Operating Manual 802.11-09/0002r12 • P802.11aaD5.0 went through Working Group Mandatory Editorial Coordination before July 2011 • P802.11adD4.0 went through Working Group Mandatory Editorial Coordination before July 2011 • P802.11aeD4.0 went through Working Group Mandatory Editorial Coordination before July 2011 • P802.11acD4.0 went through Working Group Mandatory Draft Reviewbefore January 2013 • P802.11afD4.0 went through Working Group Mandatory Draft Review before Saturday May 18, 2013 Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 12/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  21. 802.11 Style Guide • See 11-09-1034-07-0000-wg11-style-guide.doc • We updated 802.11 WG Style Guide based on 2012 IEEE Standards Style Manual and consistency changes in final publication of the 802.11 standard • Editor’s responsibility includes checking the 2012 IEEE Standards Style Manual when creating or updating drafts. https://development.standards.ieee.org/myproject/Public/mytools/draft/styleman.pdf • Submissions with draft text should conform to both the WG11 Style Guide and IEEE Standards Style Manual • Note that the Style Guide evolves with our practice Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 13/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  22. 802.11 Styles • Need to be aware that we actually have two 802.11 styles,  each relating to a baseline doc.   Amendments must follow style in their baseline,  and not try and fix quoted text in their baseline to change its editorial style. • Example is the numbering of NOTES,  which is likely to change from per-contiguous-sequence to per-subclause in REVmc. Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 14/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  23. 802.11 Editor’s Guide • https://mentor.ieee.org/802.11/dcn/11/11-11-0875-01-0000-editor-s-guide.doc • This document contains material relevant to the job of being an 802.11 editor. • It is recommended that editors read this material before they start, as it may avoid them needlessly re-inventing the wheel. • Creating a Redline, Graphics, Numbering and ANA, Source Control • Comment Resolution and Publication Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 15/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  24. Amendment numbering is editorial! No need to make ballot comments on these dynamic numbers! Editor Amendment Ordering • Data as of Sept 2013 • See http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/11/Reports/802.11_Timelines.htm • July 2013 Editors changed the running order and will revisit in July 2014, maintaining this order in the interim Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 16/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  25. September 2013 Email Your Draft Status Updates • Each editor, please send update for next page via the editor’s reflector no later than Thursday am2 to update table on next page! Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 17/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  27. IEEE Standards Dictionary: Glossary of Terms and Definitions • They recently changed the access rules for dictionary.ieee.org, according to the email: • "If you are a Working Group or Sponsor Officer: As long as you are listed as an officer in myProject, you will automatically be given access to the Standards Dictionary. • For those who are not Working Group Officers: You must add these individuals to a project as a "Technical Editor". " Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 19/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  28. IEEE Standards Central Desktop • IEEE-SA central desktop site tour of the facilities • https://ieee-sa.centraldesktop.com/802-11editorial/ Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 20/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  29. Editors Backup practices • The IEEE Servers provide durable places to retain the 802.11 source files, drawing files, and other components of drafts. • Our best practice is that after a draft is posted in the Member’s Area, a zip file containing all the clean source files, drawing files and other components should be created and sent to the 802.11 Working Group Editor for safekeeping. Please rename the file extension to .piz (.zip backwards), so the WG Editor’s email system allows it to be delivered. Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 21/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  30. MIB style, Visio and Frame practices • I’m going to suggest going forward we use a single style with appropriately set tabs,  and use leadingTabs to distinguish the syntax and description parts. (Adrian Stephens Feb 9, 2010) •  Keep embedded figures using visio as long as possible • Near the end of sponsor ballot,  turn these all into .wmf (windows meta file) format files (you can do this from visio using “save as”).   Keep separate files for the .vsd source and the .wmf file that is linked to from frame. • Frame templates for 11aa, 11ac, 11af • Text version of MIB is available (2012, ae2012, aa2012, ad2012, acD5.0, afD5.0) Adrian Stephens, Intel Corporation from slide 22/26 of 11-13/1036r1 by Peter Ecclesine (Cisco Systems)

  31. Two Technical Editors • Peter Ecclesine will run the face to face meetings • Adrian Stephens will run the publication process • Adrian Stephens is the ANA administrator • All are on the Editor’s email list.
