I have included your comments in rev 1 of the SPI-3 minutes.  Your email
included some questions that I would like to respond to here:

>Regarding 4.12.

>at the November meeting I want to point out that we have now accepted into
>SPI-3 two proposals for the use of the previously reserved two SCSI bus

I believe George plans to fix this conflict in rev 1.  I know we discussed
how this could be accomplished at the May T10 meetings, but I am pretty
sure no motions were taken.  Assuming George does indeed fix the problem in
rev 1, I would argue that a motion accepting rev 1 as the working draft for
SPI-3 would be sufficient.  I agree that we do need to clear up this
conflict ASAP.

>Regarding 4.15
><<A straw poll favored further consideration of the proposal 11:6.>>

The abandonment came the next day.
