Bob and Ralph,
I am glad that Ralph commented on this message as I must have accidentally
deleted it (or my filters 'helped' me out).
Anyway, I think Ralph is right about CAP being the correct forum for a 15
minute presentation on SM-HBA. We should also have a short mention of this
topic at SAS Protocol WG and the T10 Plenary meeting. I think this topic can
be included under the T11 Liaison Report at T10. I'll add agenda items to
both CAP and SAS Protocol WG.

>>I would like to request 15 minutes of time at the May 2006 T10 plenary
meeting for R. Krithivas of Intel, the editor of the T11.5 SM-HBA draft
standard, to summarize SM-HBA for T10 membership. While apologizing for a
request that extends the T10 plenary meeting beyond its necessary
administrative functions, one of those functions is liaison. T11.5 has neared
completion of draft standard SM-HBA, and believes it is an interesting
subject for liaison. The grounds of common interest is the major feature of
SM-HBA, which is extending the HBA API defined for Fibre Channel/FCP to
include consistent management of SAS HBAs as well.
