IEEE Std 1394a-2000, Standard for a High Performance Serial Bus---Amendment 
1, was approved by the IEEE-SA Standards Board on March 30, 2000. Perhaps 
I'm mistaken, but I thought Gene Milligan had faithfully conveyed this 
datum to T10 at an earlier plenary.

The PDF version of the standard is available for purchase from the IEEE 
(see ); the soft-bound printed edition is at the printers and should be 
available within a month or two.

A formal request to the IEEE (from the Chair of the Microprocessor 
Standards Committee, Don Wright) with respect to international 
standardization of both IEEE Std 1394-1995 and IEEE Std 1394a-2000 is 
anticipated before the next T10 plenary.
