The first public review of SPL-4 produced two comments (one each from 
Seagate and Broadcom).

Thursday (12 Jan) the T10 Plenary will be processing the following 
documents related to those comments.

Formal Response letters:
for Seagate: http://www.t10.org/cgi-bin/ac.pl?t=d&f=17-025r1.pdf
for Broadcom: http://www.t10.org/cgi-bin/ac.pl?t=d&f=17-026r2.pdf

There will be a show-of-hands 2/3 vote to approve these responses.

SPL-4 changes:
Summary of changes: http://www.t10.org/cgi-bin/ac.pl?t=d&f=17-033r0.pdf
Updated SPL-4 (r10b): http://www.t10.org/cgi-bin/ac.pl?t=f&f=spl4r10b.pdf

There will be a show-of-hands 2/3 vote to approve these changes (many of 
which are substantive) and to recommend a second public review for SPL-4 
r11 (which is r10b with the change bars removed).

The motion for this second vote will describe SPL-4 as having 
"substantive changes after dpANS" (pronounced d-pans). This is the 
INCITS/ANSI terminology used when a document gets comments during public 

All the best,
