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

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-PH2.  See SSA-TL2 comments for resolution (a note has been added).

Comments attached to YesC ballot from Gene Milligan of Seagate Technology:

SEA-1) The file I downloaded was defective and I could not review the document.  Please check the draft to
see if it has the same type of problems as outlined in the other SSA drafts.

RESPONSE: The document was in the X3T10 9606 mailing and as been verified as good.  The single "must"
is removed in Annex K paragraph 2 by removing the word "must".  The two occurrences of "can" are
removed by removing both occurrences of "it can be seen that".  See the comment resolution for either SSA-
TL2 or SSA-S3P for resolution of your other concerns.
