Results of Meeting

1.     Opening Remarks

John Lohmeyer, the T10 Chair, called the meeting to order at 9:00 a.m.,
Thursday July 16, 1998.  He thanked Doug Hagerman of Compaq for hosting the
meeting.

John said that NCITS Subgroup Membership forms and the T10 Mailing
Subscription form were available on the document table.  He said that people
should use the NCITS forms to insure the NCITS Secretariat has the latest
membership information.  These forms should be mailed directly to the NCITS

Secretariat.

As is customary, the people attending introduced themselves and a copy of the
attendance list was circulated.  Copies of the draft agenda and general
information on T10 were made available to those attending.

2.     Approval of Agenda

The draft agenda was approved with the following additions/changes:

10.1.1     EPI revision 15 letter ballot for first public review [Ham]
10.1.2     ASC/ASCQ Definitions for RBC in SPC-2 [Weber]
10.1.3     SPI-2 revision 20b to substitute for revision 20a [Penokie]
10.1.4     SAM-2 hierarchical addressing requirement [Penokie/Snively]
10.1.5     A/B Port (98-145r1) for SPC-2 [Weber]

(sic)
11.2.5     Roll Call vote on CD 14776-371, Information technology - Small
Computer System Interface - Part 371: Enclosure Services Command Set (SCSI
SES)

3.     Attendance and Membership

The membership requirements were reviewed.  NCITS rules permit one vote per
organization.  An individual from a new organization must attend two out of
three consecutive plenary meetings.  He/she may apply for voting membership
the second meeting via a letter to the Chair of T10.  The individual may vote
at the second plenary meeting.  Working group meetings do not count toward
attendance requirements.

Organizations must also pay the NCITS Service Fee ($300) to maintain
membership.  The ANSI International Program Fee (also $300) is billed at the
same time.  Alternatively, organizations may join T10 with the experimental
Organizational Membership; this membership option costs $2500 and includes one
principal member, any number of alternates, and either two CD-ROM mailings or
one CD_Access mailing.

John briefly discussed the mailing fees.  Complete pricing information is
contained in the 1998 membership form (available at
ftp://ftp.symbios.com/t10/pub/standards/io/t10/mem_form.txt).

On July 7th, 22 people were dropped from the T10 roster for non-payment of
fees.  Most of these people were observers who seldom attended meetings.
However, one person was a principal member of T10, Keith Parker of Diogenes
SCSI.

The Chair said he had sent letters to 4 people from 2 organizations informing
them that their membership was in jeopardy due to non-attendance (see
98-010r0) and that their membership would be terminated if they did not attend
this meeting. The following organizations were in attendance jeopardy:

Cable Design Technologies
Distributed Processing Technology

All of the organizations were present.

No organizations were terminated due to lack of attendance.

No organizations requested new membership at this meeting.

Also, due to the acquisition of the Digital Equipment Corp. by Compaq
Computer, the Digital membership was dropped.

The T10 membership during the meeting was 49 organizations down from 51
organizations last time.  Enclosure (1) is the list of the people present at
the meeting and enclosure (2) is the current T10 membership list.

4.     Approval of Minutes - May `98 Meeting Colorado Springs, CO
(T10/98-148r1)

The minutes were approved as written.


5.     Document Distribution

Members who have any problems with their mailing subscription should deal
directly with Judy Gales (jgales at itic.nw.dc.us) (202) 626-5741.

John Lohmeyer requested that all documents for the next mailing be in his
hands in electronic format by 10:30 a.m. on Thursday July 23, 1998.  Documents
received after this time will go into a subsequent mailing.

John reminded the committee of the requirements for document submission.
Since T10 meets its document retention requirements by preparing mailings,
documents included in the mailing must be suitable for archiving.  This means
that native-format and/or Portable Document Format (PDF) electronic originals
with proper identification must be submitted.

The electronic copies can be sent directly to John by e-mail (at
lohmeyer at ix.netcom.com), placed on the SCSI BBS (719-533-7950), or they can be
transferred by ftp protocol to ftp.symbios.com and placed in the
/pub/standards/io/incoming directory. In the latter two cases, please also
send an e-mail to John informing him of the file name and location of the
file.

As usual, minutes are also available on the SCSI BBS (719-533-7950), the T10
World Wide Web page (see below), and will be distributed to the T10 Reflector.

To be added to the T10 Reflector, send an e-mail to majordomo at symbios.com with
the line 'subscribe t10' in the message body.  The NCITS Secretariat maintains
a World Wide Web page at http://www.ncits.org/.  Symbios maintains a World
Wide Web page on behalf of T10 at http://www.symbios.com/t10/.

The current document register is enclosure (3).  The T10 document register is
also available on the SCSI BBS in file DR.TXT and at

ftp://ftp.symbios.com/pub/standards/io/t10/dr.txt.

6.     Call for Patents

This is a regular agenda item to identify any potential patent issues with
developing standards.

A document is available from ANSI, "Procedures for the Development and
Coordination of American National Standards", at no charge.  This document is
also on the WWW at http://www.ncits.org/help/ansi_sdo.html.  Section 1.2.11

8.     Project Status Reports

8.1    Project Status Summary and NCITS/OMC Liaison [Lohmeyer]


John Lohmeyer said that the current T10 project status summary was included in
the T10 Information Packages and will be included in the mailing as usual.
John presented a foil with some recent updates to the project summary
highlighted.

8.2    SPI Amendment (SPIAmnd) {Project 0855-D} [Johansson/Lamers]

John Lohmeyer reported that the SPI Amendment has been approved by BSR as is
moving toward ANSI publication.

8.3    SCSI Common Access Method - 3 (CAM-3) Status {Project 990-D} [Dallas]

In the absence of Bill Dallas, no report was available.

8.4    SCSI-3 Block Commands (SBC) Status {Project 996-D} [Milligan]

Gene Milligan announced that SBC (NCITS.306:1998) had been published.  John
Lohmeyer congratulated Gene.

8.5    SCSI-3 Stream Commands (SSC) Status {Project 997-D} [Peterson]

John Lohmeyer announced that he had appointed Dave Peterson as the new SSC
Project Editor.  Dave is also editing the FC-Tape Technical Report.

Gene Milligan moved that the SSC motion from the last meeting be removed from
the table, and then moved that the motion be withdrawn.  In the absence of any
objections both motions passed and the motion to cancel the SSC project unless
an editor could be named was withdrawn.

Gene Milligan moved that the SSC revision 12 forwarding motion from November
be rescinded.  Erich Oetting seconded the motion to rescind.  John ruled that
the motion would require a two-thirds vote to pass.  The motion to rescind
passed 27:0:0:22=49.

Chair's note:  This effectively means that the SSC project is back in the
state of letter ballots comments resolution and will need another forwarding
motion to take it to first public review.

8.6    SCSI-3 Medium Changer Commands (SMC) Status {Project 999-D} [Oetting]

John Lohmeyer reported that SMC has been approved by BSR as is moving toward
ANSI publication.

John Lohmeyer reported that MMC has been approved by BSR and in publication.

8.8    SCSI Parallel Interface - 2 (SPI-2) {Project 1142-D} [Ham/Penokie]

John Lohmeyer reported that the public review of SPI-2 closes July 21, 1998.

8.9    SCSI Enhanced Parallel Interface (EPI) Technical Report {Project
1143-D} [Ham]

John Lohmeyer reported that two editing sessions have been held for EPI since
the last committee meeting.  Bill Ham believes that revision 15 is the correct
draft for a letter ballot approving first public review.  John announced that
he plans to conduct a letter ballot as soon as revision 15 is available.  John
warned members to review EPI carefully during the letter ballot, as that may
be their last chance to comment on it, since EPI is a technical report.

8.10   SCSI Fibre Channel Protocol - 2 (FCP-2) {Project 1144-D} [Snively]

Bob Snively reported on the activities of the SCSI working group regarding
FCP-2 (minutes 98-201) and indicated that the first draft should be available
in late September, after the next committee meeting.  Bob stated an
expectation that FCP-2 will be ready for public review in November 1999.

8.11   Serial Bus Protocol - 2 (SBP-2) {Project 1155-D} [Johansson]

John Lohmeyer reported that SBP-2 is in public review, closing in late August.
Pete McLean requested meeting time in September to resolve public review
comments.

8.12   SCSI Architecture Model - 2 (SAM-2) {Project 1157-D} [Weber]

Ralph Weber reported that SAM-2 revision 6, containing all committee approved
changes, was in the last mailing.  Revision 7, wherein the object notation was
replaced by English text, was prepared shortly before this meeting and
reviewed at an editing meeting earlier this week.  Revision 8, containing
changes from this meeting week, will be prepared for the next mailing.

Ralph noted that questions have been raised that cause him to suspect a
discontinuity between the architecture model depiction of targets and the
image many committee members have of that same object.  He requested that
separate meeting time be scheduled to discuss this during September.


Ralph indicated that November 1999 is a reasonable target date for SAM-2
public review.

8.13   SCSI-3 Enclosure Commands (SES) {Project 1212-D} [Snively]

John Lohmeyer reported that SES has been approved by BSR as is moving toward
ANSI publication.

8.14   High Availability Profile (HAP) Technical Report {Project 1224-DT}
[Hagerman]

No report.

8.15   SCSI Controller Commands - 2 (SCC-2) {Project 1225-D} [Penokie]

John Lohmeyer reported that SCC-2 is ready to go to BSR and then publication.

8.16   Multimedia Command Set - 2 (MMC-2) Status {Project 1228-D} [Roberts]

John Lohmeyer reported that MMC-2 did not meet this month.  They have
requested their normal meeting times in September.

8.17   SCSI Primary Commands - 2 (SPC-2) Status {Project 1236-D} [Weber]

Ralph Weber reported that SPC-2 revision 3, containing all committee approved
changes, was placed on the T10 web site shortly after the last mailing.

target date.

8.18   Reduced Block Commands (RBC) {Project 1240-D} [Bryan]

Pete McLean reported on the activities of the RBC working group, which met
this past Monday (minutes in 98-207).  The working group unanimously
recommended that RBC revision 5 be the subject of a letter ballot for first
public review.  John stated that he would conduct a letter ballot as soon as
he receives revision 5.

8.19   SCSI Socket/SSL Services Command Set (SSS)  {Project 1246-D} [Parker]

John announced that Keith Parker provided an electronic report, 98-191, and
asked interested persons to obtain the report from the T10 web site and review
it.

Review of the report showed that the activities have shifted to defining IP
over SCSI.  It was suggested that work should be taken to IETF.  John proposed
that action on SSS be deferred to the September meeting.

8.20   SCSI Parallel Interface - 3 (SPI-3) {Project 1302-D} [Penokie]

George Penokie reported that SPI-3 revision 0 has been distributed.  He noted
the very active SPI-3 working group meeting (minutes in 98-200).

8.21   SCSI Enclosure Profile (SEP) Technical Report {Project 1303-DT} [Weber]

Ralph Weber reported that Brad Brookes responded to an e-mail request for
inputs with an indication that other work was consuming all his time but he
would be interested in discussing the topic at sometime in the future.

9.     Old Business

9.1    Making Extent Reservations Obsolete [Snively]

Based a unanimous recommendation of the May working group and the lack of
response to a T10 Reflector announcement, Bob Snively moved that extent
reservations in Reserve/Release and Persistent Reservations be made obsolete.
Erich Oetting seconded the motion.  The motion passed 25:1.  Ralph Weber took
an action item to make extent reservations obsolete in SPC-2.

9.2    Making the Change Definition Command Obsolete [Snively]

Based a unanimous recommendation of the May working group and the lack of
negative response to a T10 Reflector announcement, Bob Snively moved that the
CHANGE DEFINITION command be made obsolete.  Erich Oetting seconded the
motion.  Bob Snively provided a list of reasons for removing the CHANGE
DEFINITION command.  The motion passed 26:0.  Ralph Weber took an action item
to make the CHANGE DEFINITION command obsolete in SPC-2.

10.    New Business

10.1   Actions on Working Group Recommendations

10.1.1 EPI revision 15 letter ballot for first public review [Ham]

John noted that this item was covered under the EPI project report (see 8.9).

10.1.2 ASC/ASCQ Definitions for RBC in SPC-2 [Weber]

Ralph Weber moved, and Pete McLean seconded, that the following ASC/ASCQ codes
be added to SPC-2 in support of RBC revision 5:

2C/05 ILLEGAL POWER CONDITION REQUEST

38/00 EVENT STATUS NOTIFICATION
38/02 ESN - POWER MANAGEMENT CLASS EVENT
38/04 ESN - MEDIA CLASS EVENT
38/06 ESN - DEVICE BUSY CLASS EVENT


5E/41 POWER STATE CHANGE TO ACTIVE
5E/42 POWER STATE CHANGE TO IDLE
5E/43 POWER STATE CHANGE TO STANDBY
5E/45 POWER STATE CHANGE TO SLEEP
5E/47 POWER STATE CHANGE TO DEVICE CONTROL

The motion passed 26:0.

10.1.3 SPI-2 revision 20b to substitute for revision 20a [Penokie]

George Penokie described a list of corrections for SPI-2 revision 20a
(98-204r0) and how SPI-2 revision 20b will be prepared from SPI-2 revision 20a
plus the exact changes described in 98-204r0.  George reported that the
working group judged all the changes to be non-substantive.

George Penokie moved that the T10 chair be instructed to substitute SPI-2
revision 20b (containing only non-substantive changes) for SPI-2 revision 20a
prior to NCITS letter ballot, if SPI-2 completes public review without
comments.  Paul Aloisi seconded the motion.  The committee carefully reviewed
the changes in SPI-2 revision 20b.  The motion passed 26:0:2:21=49.

George Penokie took an action item to prepare SPI-2 revision 20b at the
convenience of the T10 chair.  John took an action item to substitute SPI-2
revision 20b for SPI-2 revision 20a prior to NCITS letter ballot if no public
review comments are received.

10.1.4 SAM-2 hierarchical addressing requirement [Penokie/Snively]

Based the unanimous recommendation of the working group, George Penokie moved
that the all logical unit numbers be required to conform to the hierarchical
addressing model.  Dal Allan seconded the motion.  It was agreed that a flat
(single level) addressing example must be added to clarify the simple case as
part of requiring the hierarchical model.  The motion passed 24:0:1.

10.1.5 A/B Port (98-145r1) for SPC-2 [Weber]

Based on the unanimous recommendation of the working group, Ralph Weber moved
that 98-145r1 be approved for inclusion in SPC-2.  Bob Snively seconded the
motion.  The motion passed 28:0.

10.1.6 Background Scan in Informational mode page (98-205) for SPC-2
[Williams]

Based on the unanimous recommendation of the working group, Jeff Williams
moved that 98-205r1 be approved for inclusion in SPC-2.  Ralph Weber seconded
the motion.  After some questions were raised about the enable/disable sense
of the bit, Jeff withdrew the motion and agreed to bring the proposal back to
the working group.

10.2   Disk Drive Predictive Failure Workshop Report [Colegrove]

Dan Colegrove reported on the Disk Drive Predictive Failure Workshop held by
professor Gordon Hughes of UCSD's Center for Magnetic Recording Research.  He
noted that the workshop failed to generate much interest from the drive
vendors in establishing a common, standardized method for reporting disk
failure prediction data.

10.3   SPI-3 Timing Proposals Report [Milligan]

Gene Milligan described several recommended times in the "SCSI bus control
timing values" table.  He informed the committee of his planned proposal to
make the recommended times mandatory.  The group was advised to examine the
recommended times relative to their products and the possibility that the
times might become mandatory, particularly the "power on to selection" time of
10 seconds.

11.    ISO

11.1   ISO Report [Milligan]

Gene Milligan provided the following electronic report:

"ISO/IEC Report 6/98 Abstracted from relevant documents

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25 (Tokyo 08) 29 May 1998

Working Group 4 Brief Report:

SC 25/WG 4 met in Tokyo from 25 May through 27 May covering all of the agenda
items presented in SC 25 N 445A. In addition SC 25/WG 4 met with SC 26 on 28
May to review the work and future work of both groups with the object of
evaluating synergy. During the past year five of the WG 4 projects resulted in
published International Standards. Three standards were due for review in
1998. The recommended outcome of the review is
addressed by the first WG 4 resolution.

At the conclusion of this meeting the projects of WG 4 include:

o      Seventeen projects which have completed CD balloting.
o      Six projects at the DIS stage.
o      Sixteen published International Standards.

o      One standard to be withdrawn.

During this meeting WG 4 has recommended thirty seven Resolutions, including
some requesting specific new work item proposals, for approval by SC 25 and
assigned fifteen action points for WG 4 and the Secretariat.


PROJECTS:

FDDI:

Project 25.13.01.03 - FDDI - Part 1:Physical Layer Protocol (PHY) [ISO
9314-1:1989-04]

A preliminary review was requested for this standard. Mr. Milligan explained
that FDDI PHY-2 includes FDDI PHY but that both documents refer to each other,
however. It was unanimously recommended for reaffirmation.
Tokyo resolution WG 4/01 was generated.

Project 25.13.01.04 - FDDI - Part 2:Media Access Control (MAC) [ISO
9314-2:1989-05]

This standard also required a preliminary review. It was also unanimously
reaffirmed. Tokyo resolution WG 4/01 also applies.

Project 25.13.01.05 - FDDI - Part 3:Physical Medium Dependent (PMD) [ISO/IEC
9314-3:1990-10]

The progress of the periodic review of this standard was still being
restrained by the lack of IEC standards for component and test specifications.
Mr. Milligan reported that he had received a partial conversion list from AMP
of EIA-to-IEC specifications. He agreed to complete this conversion list as
far as possible (Action item 1) to enable FDDI PMD to progress with a revised
DIS document. London resolution WG 4/01 and Buzios resolutions WG 4/01 and /02
are still relevant.

FDD:

Project 25.13.10.01 - Flexible Disk [ISO 9315:1989-06]

This standard required a preliminary review. The US and Japanese NBs would
refer to revise the standard. After discussion, Mr. Mori (who is the project
editor) suggested that this standard should be withdrawn due to
lack of resources. This was unanimously agreed. Tokyo resolution WG4/01
applies.

IPI:

Project 25.13.10.08 - Intelligent Peripheral Interface (IPI) - Part 3:
Device Generic Command Set for Magnetic Disk Drives (IPI-3 Disk) [ISO/IEC
9318-3:1990-12]

At the previous SC 25/WG 4 meeting it was decided to fast-track this standard.
However due to a declining interest in this item, it was unanimously agreed
not to encourage the US NB to fast-track IPI-3 Disk.

Project 25.13.10.09 - Intelligent Peripheral Interface (IPI) - Part 4:
Device Generic Command Set for Magnetic Tape Drives (IPI-3 Tape) [ISO/IEC
9318-4:1990-12]

As above.

SCSI:

Project 25.13.11.02 - SCSI-2 Common Access Method (SCSI-2 CAM) [9316-421 or
9316-2, DIS 15842]

DIS approved in 03/98. Following a request from IEC Central Office, it was
agreed to use the number 9316-2 instead of 9316-421 for this standard. Mr.
Margner pointed out that 9316-1 could not be used because it was formerly
taken to progress the standards work on SCSI-2 before it became ISO/IEC
9316:1995-11. Tokyo resolution WG4/02 is appropriate.

Project 25.13.11.03 - SCSI-3 Primary Commands (SPC) [CD 14776-311]

The NWIP ballot failed because only 4 NBs had agreed to actively participate
in this project (according to question Q.3 of the NP ballot form). It appears
that a positive Brazil vote had not been incorporated into the ballot result.
It is expected that the vote result will be changed to proceed.

Action point 9 was generated to request the Secretary to send out information
electronically to WG 4 members indicating that an NP ballot for a particular
project has started with special focus on the ending date and the importance
of question Q.3.

The CD ballot was successful and was distributed as SC 25 N 463. Action point
8 was generated to ensure that any CD comments are obtained by the Secretary
and circulated to Mr. Milligan. London resolution WG 4/20 is
still pending. Tokyo resolution WG 4/03 was generated to enable progression
|from DIS to IS. Tokyo resolution WG 4/04 was generated in case the Brazil vote
could not be changed i.e. to encourage the US NB to fast-track the standard.

Project 25.13.11.04 - SCSI-3 Interlocked Protocol (SIP) [CD 14776-211]

As above except that Tokyo resolutions WG 4/05 and /06 are relevant.


Project 25.13.11.16 - SCSI Specifications for Optical Memory Card
Reader/Writer_ (OMC RD/WR) [14776-381]

Document JTC 1/SC 25/WG 4/T(okyo)07:Latest draft of CD 14776-381 SCSI Optical
Memory Card Reader/Writer, was distributed by Mr. Hosoya. Document SC 25/WG
4/T(okyo)09 containing comments on the draft specification was distributed by
Mr. Milligan. Tokyo resolution WG 4/16 was generated to enable the project
title to be changed from 'SCSI Specification for Optical Memory Card
Reader/Writer' to 'SCSI Optical Memory Card Device Commands' . Buzios
resolution WG 4/17 and Tokyo resolution WG 4/17 are relevant for the
progression of this standard.

Project 25.13.11.23 - SCSI Controller Commands-2 (SCC-2) [CD 14776-342]

This CD is currently out for ballot, however the NWIP has yet to be submitted.
Tokyo resolution WG 4/22 enables the NWIP. Tokyo resolutions WG 4/36 and /37
were generated to enable CD and DIS documents and letter ballots.

HIPPI:

Project 25.13.12.07 - HIPPI - Part 7:Fibre Channel Protocol (HIPPI-FC)
[11518-7]

HIPPI-FC was to have been a temporary standard to enable FC oriented commands
to be ported over HIPPI. As FC became widely used no requirement for a
standards was felt. Consequently, a NWIP will not be submitted. London
resolutions WG 4/51, /52, and /53 have been withdrawn in 01/98.

FC:

Project 25.13.13.09 - Fibre Channel (FC) Mapping of Link Encapsulation  [ISO
8802-2] (FC-LE) [14165-231]

The current implementations of FC over LE have not been used. The US has
decided to recommend that standards developed in other areas (e.g. 'IP over
FC' (IPFC) will be handled by a proposed IETF working group) be used instead.
The US does not plan to submit this as a CD and recommended that this project
was canceled.. Tokyo resolution WG 4/26 cancels this project and withdraws
London resolutions WG 4/56 and /57.

Note: IETF stands for Internet Engineering Task Force

Project 25.13.13.2x - Fibre Channel (FC) Fabric Loop Attachment_ (FC-FLA)
[14165-tbd]

This document has been published as a Technical Report in the US. The content
is more like a profile standard. Currently there is no perceived need to
promote it into the international arena. An abstract was distributed
electronically to all Buzios WG 4 participants in 10/97.

Project 25.13.13.2x - Fibre Channel (FC) Private Loop SCSI Direct Attach
(FC-PLDA) [14165-tbd]

This document is currently being generated as a Technical Report in the US.
The content is more like a profile standard. Currently there is no perceived
need to promote them into the international arena. An abstract was distributed
electronically to all Buzios WG 4 participants in 10/97."

12.    Liaison Reports

John Lohmeyer announced that Timothy Whitcher had contacted him regarding the
work of IT10, Electronic Still Picture Imaging of the Photographic & Imaging
Manufacturers Association.  They have a work item to develop "common command
set" for Digital Still Cameras that is suitable for "host centric" and
"peer-to-peer" protocols.  They want the commands to work over multiple
transports including SBP-2 over 1394, USB, IrDA, and RF.

John had responded to Timothy saying that T10 would be willing to cooperated
with IT10, particularly in providing SCSI architectural guidance should IT10
want to develop a SCSI-compatible command set.

The next meeting of this group is August 20-21 in Rochester, NY.

12.1   T11 Liaison Report [Cummings]

Roger Cummings presented an oral report to the committee and provided the

following electronic report for the minutes.

85 people attended the June T11 Plenary. No organizations lost membership.
KnowledgeTek was added as anew member organization. The membership of T11 is
now 81 organizations. The total attendance for the T11 week was 141 people.

First Public Reviews for HIPPI-6400-PH and HIPPI-6400-SC each closed with one
comments distributed by T11.1.

McData indicated that they had obtained patent 5748612, "Method and apparatus
for implementing virtual circuits in a fibre channel system", which they
believe may be necessary for implementation of Class 4 in FC-PH-2. An action
item was assigned for Ken Fredericks of McData to investigate licensing this
patent within the terms of the ANSI patent policy.

T11 approved the submittal of the text of X3.230/AM1:1996 and X3.230/DAM2:199x
as comments against the DIS Letter Ballot of FC-PH by a rollcall vote of
Y59-N00- DNV20.

The FC-TAPE & FC-MJS-2 projects were assigned Project Numbers 1315-DT and
1316-DT respectively. The FC-FS and FC-VI Project Proposals were not
considered at the May OMC meeting because of the pressure of work, and they
will be considered at the July NCITS meeting.

Project Proposals for ST-API (Scheduled Transfer API) & HIPPI-LE Revised (Link
Encapsulation Revision due to 5 year review) project proposals were forwarded
by meeting votes of Y56-O00-DNV25 and Y51-O00-DNV30 respectively.

The Calls for Volunteers for T11.3 and T11.4 Chair are still open and will
close on 8/7/98.

The T11 Chair has tendered his resignation from the post. A Call for
Volunteers for that position has been issued and will close on 9/18/98 so that
the new Chair may be appointed by NCITS at their meeting in Denver, CO on
9/23- 25/98. The Call is document 98-355v0.htm, on http://www.t11.org.

The dates for the April 1999 T11 meeting week were changed to 12-16 by
unanimous consent.

The next T11 meetings will be held during the week of August 10-14 @ the Forte
Crest Hotel, Pembroke Road, Portsmouth PO1 2TA, UK hosted by Xyratex. The
telephone number (from the US) is 011-44-1705-827651, the fax number is
011-44-1705-756715 and the rate is ?85/night. As of last week rooms were still
available. See http://www.t11.org for meeting map. The exact time and date for
the Plenary meetings are:

a) T11.1 8/12 6-9pm
b) T11.2 8/12 1-6pm
c) T11.3 8/13 9am-1pm
d) T11.4 8/11 5-9pm,
e) T11   8/13 2-7pm

12.2   T13 Liaison Report [Milligan]

Gene Milligan reported on the activities of the most recent T13 meeting.

12.3   SFF Industry Group [Allan]

Dal Allan made an oral report to the committee and provided the following
electronic report for the minutes.

The HSS (High Speed Serial) Testing SSWG (Specific Subject Working Group) met
in Shrewsbury hosted by Compaq/DEC and another will be held later this month
in Owego, hosted by Amphenol. It looks as if there has been breakthrough that
reduces the complexity of testing. Four tests produce significant data, many
other tests are complementary but not essential.

The missing dimension on SCA-2, which delayed publication of SFF-8451, is
still missing, and a replacement figure will be provided by AMP. Mark Evans
asked that a warning be added when SCA drives are used with a transition card
to a cabled tester. Because the angle of entry is not constrained and the
guides get distorted with repeated use, it is possible to short 12V and fry
the drive on a hot insertion.

A set of new figures for HSSDC received from AMP caused great perturbation
because of the high number of changed dimensions. One in particular has caused
grief for Amphenol because it affects a tooled part and is critical on the
mating interface. In addition, there have been complaints about the latch not
retaining between different vendors, and it is not immediately obvious that
the new dimensions correct the problem.

Seagate proposed an extension to SFF-8067 (for Fibre Channel enclosures) which
amongst other things, allows gathering SCSI Inquiry data out of band. It will

be incorporated into the next revision.

The shroud chamfer tolerance on SFF-8012 for the 4-pin power connector was
modified to remove an interference problem with unitized connectors.

Most of SFF-8017 has been incorporated within SCSI-3 EPI, and Bill Ham
recommended that it be balloted to Expire.

The ballot on SFF-8090i for ATAPI Removable Rewritable Media passed the ballot
to be renewed, because there is some content which is specific to hi-density
120 MB floppies which is not in SCSI-3 MMC-2. A letter will be sent asking if
it is possible to identify this content so that it can be considered for RBC
or a new revision which has no optical media content.

12.4   IEEE 1394 [Johansson]

In the absence of Peter Johansson, no formal report was available.

12.5   IEEE P1285 Status

No report.

12.6   IEEE P1596.8 Status

Bob Snively reported that no new information is available.

12.7   SCSI Trade Association (STA) [Jones/Aloisi]

Paul Aloisi presented the following report:

STA Meeting May 8, 1998
Proposals for Ultra3 were presented.
A letter ballot, vote at the meeting tomorrow will be used to define what will
be included in Ultra3.

next SPC-2 revision.
280)   George Penokie will prepare SPI-2 revision 20b at the convenience of
the T10 chair.
281)   John Lohmeyer will substitute SPI-2 revision 20b for SPI-2 revision 20a
prior to NCITS letter ballot if no public review comments are received.
282)   John Lohmeyer will conduct a letter ballot on forwarding EPI revision
15 to first public review.
283)   John Lohmeyer will conduct a letter ballot on forwarding RBC revision 5
to first public review.

14.    Meeting Schedule

The next plenary meeting of T10 will be September 17, 1998 in St. Petersburg

Gene Milligan moved that there be no January 2000 meeting.  George Penokie
seconded the motion.  The motion failed 8:15:5.  Gene Milligan moved that the
offer of ENDL to host in Brisbane, Australia be accepted.  Ed Gardner seconded
the motion.  The motion passed 15:9:5.  A straw poll between RTP (Research
Triangle Park) and Dallas in March 2000 favored RTP 12:6, however the decision
will be made by the host.

Zane Daggett moved that the March through November 2000 dates and locations be
approved.  Roger Cummings seconded the motion.  The motion passed 20:1:2.

14.1     Authorization of Working Group Meetings

John noted that the working group meetings are required to operate under the
same voting procedures as does T10 (that is, one vote per organization) and
the results of a working group are not binding on the parent committee.  Ad

hoc groups should strive to achieve consensus prior to bringing issues to
T10.

Roger Cummings moved that T10 authorize the T10-related meetings and events in
the list above.  Paul Aloisi seconded the motion.  The motion passed
unanimously.

15.    Adjournment

The meeting was adjourned at 12:37 p.m. on Thursday July 16, 1998.
