3.     Attendance and Membership

The membership requirements were reviewed.  NCITS rules permit one vote per
organization.  An individual from a new organization must attend two out of
three consecutive plenary meetings.  He/she may apply for voting membership
the second meeting via a letter to the Chair of T10.  The individual may vote
at the second plenary meeting.  Working group meetings do not count toward
attendance requirements.  For the purposes of letter ballot votes, a person
attending their first meeting may become a voting member immediately following
that meeting, provided their NCITS fees have been paid.

To maintain membership, organizations must pay the NCITS Service Fee ($300).
The ANSI International Program Fee (also $300) is billed at the same time.
The following organizations were terminated (deleted from the T10 membership
list) for failure to pay the 1999 fees:

Dallas Semiconductor
Data General / Clariion
SyQuest Technology, Inc.

John briefly discussed the mailing fees.  Complete pricing information is
contained in the 1999 membership form (available at
ftp://ftp.symbios.com/t10/pub/standards/io/t10/mem_form.txt).

The Chair said he had sent letters to 13 people from 6 organizations informing
them that their membership was in jeopardy due to non-attendance (see
98-026r0) and that their membership would be terminated if they did not attend
this meeting. The following organizations were in attendance jeopardy:

Circuit Assembly Corp.
Data General / Clarion
Hewlett Packard Co.
Honda Connectors
Philips Electronics
SyQuest Technology, Inc.

All of the organizations were present except:

Data General / Clarion
SyQuest Technology, Inc.

These organizations were already terminated for failure to pay the 1999 fees.

The following organization requested new (or reinstated) membership at this
meeting:

BREA Technologies, Inc.
Panasonic Technologies, Inc

The T10 membership during the meeting was 47 organizations down from 48
organizations following the last meeting.  Enclosure (1) is the list of the
people present at the meeting and enclosure (2) is the current T10 membership
list.

(T10/98-234r1)

The minutes were approved as written.

5.     Document Distribution

Members who have any problems with their mailing subscription should deal
directly with Judy Gales (jgales at itic.org) (202) 626-5741.

John Lohmeyer requested that all documents for the next mailing be in his
hands in electronic format by 10:30 a.m. on Thursday March 18, 1999.
Documents received after this time will go into a subsequent mailing.

John reminded the committee of the requirements for document submission.
Since T10 meets its document retention requirements by preparing mailings,
documents included in the mailing must be suitable for archiving.  This means
that native-format and/or Portable Document Format (PDF) electronic originals
with proper identification must be submitted.

The electronic copies can be sent directly to John by e-mail (at
lohmeyer at ix.netcom.com), or they can be transferred by ftp protocol to
ftp.symbios.com and placed in the /pub/standards/io/incoming directory. In the
latter case, please also send e-mail to John informing him of the file name
and location of the file.

As usual, minutes are also available on the SCSI BBS (719-533-7950), the T10
World Wide Web page (see below), and will be distributed to the T10 Reflector.

To be added to the T10 Reflector, send an e-mail to majordomo at symbios.com with
the line 'subscribe t10' in the message body.  The NCITS Secretariat maintains
a World Wide Web page at http://www.ncits.org/.  LSI Logic maintains a World
Wide Web page on behalf of T10 at http://www.symbios.com/t10/.

The current document register is enclosure (3).  The T10 document register is
also available on the SCSI BBS in file DR.TXT and at
ftp://ftp.symbios.com/pub/standards/io/t10/dr.txt.

6.     Call for Patents

This is a regular agenda item to identify any potential patent issues with
developing standards.  A call was made and no one identified any patents
issues.

A document is available from ANSI, "Procedures for the Development and
Coordination of American National Standards", at no charge.  This document is
also on the WWW at http://www.ncits.org/help/ansi_sdo.html.  Section 1.2.11
contains the ANSI patent policy.  Amy Marasco manages patent issues for ANSI

following:  changes noted during the September meetings not related to
multi-port issues, replacing most uses of `SCSI-3' with `SCSI', changing
HiSupport to HiSup (standard Inquiry data bit name), and removing references
to Search Data commands (which are obsolete in SBC).  If approved at this
meeting, the following documents will be incorporated in the next SAM-2
revision: 98-188r2 (Very Long CDBs) and 98-241r1 (Flag bit obsolete).

9.     Old Business

9.1    Resolution of RBC Letter Ballot comments

Pete McLean moved that 98-222r1 be accepted as resolving the RBC letter ballot
comments and that RBC revision 8 be forwarded to NCITS for further processing
towards first public review.  Bob Snively seconded the motion.

George Penokie requested that the IBM negative vote on the RBC letter ballot
be changed to Yes based on the satisfactory resolution of the letter ballot
comments.  Bob Snively requested that the Sun Microsystems negative vote on
the RBC letter ballot be changed to Yes based on the satisfactory resolution
of the letter ballot comments.  Ed Gardner requested that the Ophidian Designs

Jones requested that the Qlogic negative vote on the RBC letter ballot be
changed to Yes based on the satisfactory resolution of the letter ballot
comments.

Gene Milligan raised a point of order regarding the need for a roll-call vote
for substantive changes to a dpANS.  John Lohmeyer ruled a roll-call vote is
not needed because RBC is not a dpANS until it is forwarded to NCITS.

The motion was approved 30:1:0:16=47.  Mark Evans stated that his negative
vote was based on the lack of time to review the final document, however he
declined to invoke the two-week rule.

ATA/ATAPI-4 and NCITS 316-1998-1394 to AT Attachment n Tailgate have been
published.

The Ultra DMA 66 proposal for ATA/ATAPI-5 was reviewed with a few detailed
changes agreed to.

Detailed proposals for Modification to the SMART Self-test Log Structure
(D99105r0)(D99108R0) were reviewed and approved for inclusion in ATA/ATAPI-5.

Flush Cache was made mandatory in ATA/ATAPI-5.

The ATA/ATAPI-5 Draft was reviewed through the packet device state diagrams.
An action item was assigned for all participants to determine if their
products use the same checksum algorithm for Identify and SMART.

Tom Hanan, of Western Digital has converted the T13 web site to
http://www.T13.org. The FTP site is still on fission.com. T13 at T13.org is now
the reflector address. For subscribing or unsubscribing address
majordomo at T13.org.

The EDD v3.0 BIOS Technical project proposal was revised and the draft
reviewed.

T13 decided to change the Method for Booting Reserved Area Boot Code
(D98131r0) from a technical report to a standard.

A project proposal for Address Offset Feature (D98142R0) Technical Report was
voted for forwarding.

A proposal for a Really Big LBA (D98142R0)  for ATA/ATAPI-6 was reviewed. A
straw poll favored 48 bits over 64 bits.

Hale Landis is developing a proposal for the additional host design data that
is needed for a full host controller definition of Multiword DMA and make a
proposal.

Pete McLean reported that the EPA has changed 8 seconds from standby to active
to be a recommendation rather than required.

Quantum is working on a response to the call for patents concerning
ATA/ATAPI-5. The contact person is Steve Wilkins 408-894-5235 or
steve.wilkins at quantum.com for information regarding licensing.

Circuit Assembly sent a letter (to be assigned a number) offering to license
their patents concerning the 80 line cable. At the moment the license is only
available to SFF and T13 member companies.

The next meeting of T13 is April 27-30, 1999 hosted by Seagate in the Raintree
Hotel, Longmont, Colorado.

12.3   SFF Industry Group [Allan]

In the interest of time, the committee asked Dal Allan skip delivering an oral
report.  Dal provided the following electronic report for the minutes.

SFF Committee Report

The HSS (High Speed Serial) Testing SSWG (Specific Subject Working Group) met
in Cupertino and Little Rock and continued making good progress. The next HSS
SSWG is scheduled for St. Augustine March 30-31. The current project is based
on duplex copper connector cables, and two new projects will begin, one on
backplanes and the other for duplex optical cables.

SFF-8441 for VHDCI (Very High Density Cable Interconnects) and SFF-8451 for
SCA-2 (Single Connector Attach) have been approved for publication.

The issues on SFF-8420 for HSSDC (High Speed Serial Data Connector) have been
addressed but are not resolved. Carl Fiske set a deadline for input to the IEC
draft on HSSDC because he is in jeopardy of losing his role as editor for
failing to provide input to the IEC.

During implementation of the extensions to SFF-8067 some changes were
identified, and will be included in the next revision.

INF-8090i has been submitted for balloting to be re-issued. The members voted
to Expire 8090i on the premise that it was the same as MMC-2 but there is a
200-page difference in size. Pioneer explained that 8090i has many of the
features of both a profile and an implementation guide in order to ensure
plug-compatibility between vendors. 8090i represents a specification of what
industry will be shipping to the 80x86 marketplace. Mt Fuji meetings (8090)
will be held during T10 week and in Japan on even months.

As requested by the members, a new draft of INF-8070i has been provided.

SFF-8012 for 4-pin power has been approved for publication and the changes
incorporated will be forwarded for the next revision of the EIA standard and
submittal to IEC.

The GBIC has moved from an 'i' specification to project status and the first
SSWG will be held in April during T11 week.

A request has been made for a 68-pin version of SCA-2 for Fibre Channel tape
drives. There is not enough 5V power in 8045 and about 10 pins are needed to
provide for a library connection. The new project will be SFF-8072, and a
companion specification to define a common location for the connector will be
SFF-8572.

John noted that the working group meetings are required to operate under the
same voting procedures as does T10 (that is, one vote per organization) and
the results of a working group are not binding on the parent committee.  Ad
hoc groups should strive to achieve consensus prior to bringing issues to T10.
