1.  Connector voting at the next PHY WG meeting.
	Internal high-density
	External high-density
Voting rules:
Given the recent emphasis from INCITS on getting people to join T10, the 
voting will be limited to one vote per T10 member company. I know that in 
the past I allowed one vote per company present (member or not), but I 
have been instructed to tighten up our working group voting requirements.
By T10 member, we are willing to include T10 Advisory Members in the 
working group votes. This will allow people to join T10 and vote 
immediately on working group recommendations, provided they pay their 
fees. The attendee status will be available on the meeting attendance log. 
As usual, working group recommendations are not binding on T10. T10 will 
take its own vote subject to the usual voting requirements there (one vote 
per voting member company).
I will also enforce the 2-week posting rule for any proposal to be voted 
2.  Status of connector and s-parameter information for 2/20 deadline.
>From the January meeting minutes:
February 20, 2009 is the deadline for posting s-parameter files (20GHz), 
NEXT, FEXT and insertion loss characteristics for cable proposals of 
1-meter and 10-meter lengths. Additional lengths may be posted if the 
manufacturer desires to do so. The earlier these parameters are made 
available, the better for having designs evaluated. Any mechanical 
proposal updates should also be posted by this deadline. Please post 
notification to the T10 reflector when electrical or mechanical data is 
3.  How do we test an active cable?
4. New items.
