You stated in very clear terms when I asked on the call: When was the cutoff
date/time for the poll, and when I asked specifically when we would we see the
results of a complete polling, that you were not going to do this work.
Now those that may or may not have completed it, based on the co-chair's
comment that he was not including these incorrect results, are being excluded.
It is incorrect and unfair to expect the entire WG to be focuced exclusively on
VI 24 x 7. Sympathetic to those that appreciate the polls or not, your
after-the-fact deadline cannot stand.
At the end of the day it is about doing this right over doing this on time.

Subject: [gnso-vi-feb10] POLL Deadline -- 0600 GMT tomorrow -- proposal for
just to clear up one little thing. let's set a hard cutoff for the poll.
noon GMT (7am Eastern) tomorrow morning.
here's the real link to the poll
i'll try to crunch out a repeat version of the summary in time for the phone
call -- and push out the details right away for those who want to do their own
and how about this for a proposal on the inclusion of the information in the
report. i note that on the first page of the survey, my first paragraph reads
"This is a poll to determine levels of support for various proposals (aka
"molecules") and components of proposals (aka "atoms). The results of this poll
will be included in the Initial Report that the WG will be submitting soon."
so, i'm less sympathetic to the "we didn't know how this was going to be used"
argument than i was on the call.
on the other hand, i agree that the "atoms" part of the poll was pretty
confusing. so here's my proposition (i'm starting to run out of synonyms for
-- exclude the "atoms" portion of the poll from the initial report -- too
confusing, too much information, not much actionable knowledge anyway
-- include the poll on the proposals
-- include the poll on the three "conclusions" (Exceptions, Compliance, SRSU),
noting that these are still moving and opinions may well change over the next
that concludes my report. remember, if you want to stand up and be counted,
noon-tomorrow GMT. if you'd like to be removed from the tally, let me know by
that same deadline and i'll take your answers out.
