I received the following corrections to the March '94 SCSI Working Group
Minutes from Larry Lamers.  The full revised minutes will be posted on the
SCSI BBS as (94-070R1.TXT).

5.2 Autosense [Monia]

The requirement for implementation is optional in SAM and optional in 
protocols. This feature is protocol dependant and even if the protocol 
supports it the logical unit is not required to do so.

6.4 SCSI-3 Download Microcode [McGrath]

Jim McGrath stated that there is a problem with his customers using download
microcode when more that 64kb of code needs to be downloaded.  He requested 
changing the buffer id field and allowing it to be used for the download 
microcode operation.  

Per Bob Snively's comments the proposal will change to allow any non-zero 
buffer id could use the relative offset to download more than 64kb of
firmware.

Jim McGrath noted that there is a desire to have multiple versions of
firmware
present in the device.  He proposed using the buffer id to indicate different

versions of firmware.

Gerry Houlder noted that CHANGE DEFINITION is the way to switch between 
different versions of microcode.
