Greg, do I understand that this is a joint charter between PWGB and PWBC?

A few questions...

1. How are contentious issues to be handled between the two groups. Joint
meetings? Were there any "bylaws" established for approval/disapproval of
specifications.

2. I did not see any mention of an IEEE standard being developed, should
that be in the charter?

3. In listing the two specifications, I did not see a data transport
mentioned. I assume that will need to be developed or adopted.

Regards, Danny Mitchell 1394 Software Development Manager
