RE: Conclusion of RADEXT WG call for consensus poll for IANA #409959 NAS-Port-Type value request
It was during discussion between the chairs and AD after the close of the poll that we determined that responses had not been sent to the correct email. I was copied directly on each email, so I didn't notice that emails were going to the incorrect address during the polling period. Otherwise, I would have immediately forwarded emails to the email list. This point of emails not going to the correct email was discussed between chairs and AD and for just this particular request and situation, we decided that we would count the approvals sent to incorrect email as part of establishing rough consensus to approve the request. Moreover, we, the chairs and AD, felt that given (a)the minor misalignment between these new types and the attribute definition and (b) the industry support for this request, that we could proceed forward.
You are right that it doesn't matter what companies individuals represent. I included company names purely as informational and should not be interpreted in any way.
For this particular consensus poll, we actually went through two consensus polling periods. The first was on April 4 and the second was on May 17. We did the second because the first was inconclusive. Did you not receive both?
The chairs and AD have the good intentions of RADEXT in mind and we will definitely keep the group appropriately engaged moving forward.

I find this procedure rather odd. I think at the very least you should have forwarded the replies to the proper list before the poll closed.
Far be it from me to suggest any conspiracy, but I find it inappropriate to come up with a rabbit from the hat trick after the poll has closed. I thought consensus was gauged on the list, not at some private alias?
I have seen no discussion on the list, apart from Avi's responses (thanks for that!), where do all these people all of a sudden come from?
And does it matter what company they represent? I was under the impression that "we are all individuals".....
Can I ask for some more openness in future consensus polls?
