Subject: Please review new revisions of the fast format proposal
I have posted two revisions of the fast format proposal (15-117).
Rev. 1 includes minor changes to rev. 0 of the proposal, which was discussed
at the May T10 meeting.
Rev. 2 reorganizes the format description by creating a format operation
model clause that consists mostly of text moved from the FORMAT UNIT command
plus several new paragraphs, deletes the moved text from FORMAT UNIT command
description, and adds references from the command to the model and vice
I created rev. 2 because at least one T10 member didn't like what rev. 1 was
doing and wanted this reorganization instead. I hope that everyone that cares
about the format command will review both revisions and be prepared to
support one direction or the other (or either?). Any additional feed back on
preferred direction before the July T10 meeting will be graciously accepted.
