This message is to inform the community of the decision of the FC-FS
working group to 

*	reestablish the Read Exchange Concise Extended Link Service as
defined in FC-FS version 0.30 (T11/00-340v1, July 2000);
*	recommend to T10 that, circumstances permitting, FCP-2 be
revised to reflect REC as an Extended Link Service rather than an FC-4
Link Service; and
*	recommend to T10 that, should it be impractical to revise FCP-2,
FCP-3 be written to reflect REC as an ELS rather than an FC-4 Link
Service, and implementers of FCP-2 be advised to diverge from the
published standard in the same manner.

This decision was motivated by the understanding of all present that the
behavior proposed reflects the actual implementation of all products
using REC.  The community is solicited to advise the T11.3 distribution
( t11_3 at mail.t11.org <mailto:t11_3 at mail.t11.org> ) of contact
information for any products known to implement the REC FC-4 Link
Service as defined in the current version of the FCP-2 specification.
