<I will be preparing a draft agenda and distributing it to the reflector

'Ultra3' (whatever Ultra3 means).  However, we will have to have some idea
of where we are going to judge the merit of Adaptec's proposal.

Since the meeting is only one day, I want to devote as much time as is
necessary to the question of symmetrical vs. asymmetrical.  We owe the
industry resolution of this question ASAP.  If any time remains, I want to
cover other SPI-2 issues, particularly those than can benefit from the
flock of physical experts I am expecting.  >

 I do not see how a proposal to change from asymmetrical drivers to symmetrical 
drivers due to limitations for Fast-80 can be decided without specifying the 
Fast-80 parameters (including coding).
