Comments attached to YesC ballot from John P. Scheible of IBM Corp.:

IBM-1) Change Header from "X3T10.1 / 1051D revision 3" to "X3T10.1 / 1051D revision 4"

Response: Accepted.

IBM-2) 1.1.1: Change "(project X3T10.1/1121)" to "(X3.294:1996)".

Response: Remove the reference as it is redundant with 2.2.

IBM-3) 1.1.2: Change "(project X3T10.1/0989)" to "(X3.295:1996)".

Response: Remove the reference as it is redundant with 2.2.

IBM-4) 1.1.3: Change "(project X3T10.1/1145)" to "(X3.293:1996)".

Response: Remove the reference as it is redundant with 2.2.

IBM-5) 1.1.4: Change "(project X3T10.1/1051)" to "(project X3T10.1/1051, this standard)".

Response: Change (project X3T10.1/1051) to ", this standard,".

IBM-6) 4: Add "In case of conflict, figures take precedence over tables and both figures and tables take
precedence over text."

Response: Accepted.

IBM-7) 8.5, five places: Change "I_T nexus" to "I_T nexus or I_T_L nexus".  8.5 is uses the term I_T nexus in
5 places when referencing by 6.11 (ABORT TASK SMS), 6.12 (ABORT TASK SET SMS), 6.13
(CLEAR TASK SET SMS), and 6.15 (LOGICAL UNIT RESET SMS) which refers to an I_T_L nexus.
However it is also referenced to by 6.14 (TARGET RESET SMS) for an I_T nexus.

Response: Accepted.

IBM-8) 8.5, bullet c): Add "LOGICAL UNIT RESET" to the list.

Response: Accepted.

IBM-9) C.1.6, bullet b): the reference to the OOT bit in "7.4", should be "6.6" (SCSI COMMAND SMS).  The
reference is not automated, and should be.

Response: Accepted.

IBM-10) D.1.2, third paragraph: the reference to "7.2" should be "6.2" (SMS validation).  The reference is not
automated, and should be.

Response: Accepted.


Comments attached to No ballot from Edward A. Gardner of Ophidian Designs:

OPH-1) It appears, from the ballot, that VLSI's negative vote remains unresolved. I would like to see a
response from X3T10.1 on VLSI's comment before approving this.  If X3T10.1 has already responded
to VLSI's comment, please refer me to the relevant document and I will amend my vote.

RESPONSE: VLSI's response only concerned SSA-TL2 related to adding a Unique ID to the Link Reset frame,
and does not impact SSA-S3P.  See SSA-TL2 comments for resolution.


Comments attached to No ballot from Gene Milligan of Seagate Technology:

SEA-1) The ballot does not indicate what the response was to the X3T10.1 NO ballot.

RESPONSE: VLSI's response only concerned SSA-TL2 related to adding a Unique ID to the Link
Reset frame, and does not impact SSA-S3P.  See SSA-TL2 comments for resolution.

SEA-2) The ballot does not indicate why Rev 4 is being forwarded when X3T10.1 balloted to forward Rev 3.

RESPONSE: X3T10.1 voted to forward Rev 3 as modified, and instructed the editor to create rev 4
with those modifications.

SEA-3) An editing session needs to review the document at least for proper use of key words (e.g. the draft
has at least two musts and ten cans).

ACCEPTED RESPONSE: Change the following occurrences of "can" to "may" end 6.3, before table
10, second and third occurrences in 8.2, 8.3.3, D.2.2, D.2.3 second occurrence.  Change first
occurrence of 8.2 from "Can only come" to "comes".  Before table 22 from "can now be released,
and the" to "shall be released and any".  D.2.3 from "can be" to "is".  I could only find 1 must in
C.1.5 which changes from "must" to "needs to".

SEA-4) This draft and the other SSA drafts need to have the cover page revised since the document is no
longer an internal X3T10.1 document.

ACCEPTED RESPONSE: In the past, we have kept the X3T10.1 designation on the document until
just before public review.  The X3T10.1 cover page remains (and will be removed at publication).
When T10 votes to forward the document to public review, an X3 number will be requested and the
document updated with the X3 number.


Web page access

X3T10.1 is planning web sites to disseminate information regarding the implementation of the standard.  The
following changes will be made:

1) Add the following to the end of clause 2.2
Further information regarding the implementation of this standard may be available at
http://www.ncits.org/t10 or http://www.ssaia.org.
