Dear Members:
A family medical emergency has taken quite a lot of my time and attention
for nearly 2 months.  Being a single parent during this time has been more
difficult than I expected.  Additionally, I had been in the process of
changing my e-mail address from bmcferrin at AOL.com to billmc at tstar.net.
Somehow, I failed to read a number of e-mails.  I apologize for the delay in
responses.  I shall search all of my e-mails since the last MMC meeting and
answer all that I find.

Kind Regards,
Bill McFerrin

Complete review of MMC-4 Draft.  A major issue has been discussed externally
in a MtFuji meeting.  We hope that Emily Hill will be present to report on
the results of that meeting and we can come to a conclusion on the wording
for the Device Busy Event description.

Some other questions/concerns have been pointed out on the reflector:
READ DISC INFORMATION command - Disc Type for DVD media
SEND OPC INFORMATION command - Certain wording, plus note the drive's option
of reporting a parameter list error.

Members are requested to complete their reviews.  If we arrive at a document
that is acceptable to the WG during the meeting, I wish to call a vote for
forwarding to T10.

7.0 New Business
7.1 MMC WG Secretary
I find it difficult to generate accurate and complete meeting notes as I try
to moderate the meeting and also operate as document editor.  I would
appreciate a volunteer for secretary.  This should be a regular MMC
