Precisely.  Too many communications for the chair to remember too.  I've
marked them complete in the draft minutes of the next meeting.

According to my records CAM-3 Rev 2 was in the SY-97-04 (July) mailing.  I
haven't actually checked my CD-ROM however.

My understanding is that most of the SBP-2 folks feel uncomfortable
deciding what is (or is not) adequate in the isochronous protocol.  They
were appealing for direct comments to the Technical Editor from anyone who
is willing to review these sections.

I think Peter views letter ballots and public reviews as "formal" and all
other comments as "informal".  Your dress code may vary...

I suspected as much.  But the written report was rather brief -- is that
another dress code?

Yes, I sent out instructions in my meeting notice:

"I've also arranged a teleconference capability for those who would rather
attend by phone.  The teleconference will be available from 8am to 4pm
Mountain Time.  Call 316-636-8255 and use meeting ID 1368."
