Since the MSC has agreed to take the function discovery
issue up at the IEEE1212 revision working group,
does that mean;

1) The MSC sees the function discovery issue as a
IEEE1212 problem, not only a IEEE1394 issue?
(PCI....etc?)

2) The MSC sees the origional intent of the
IEEE1212's definition of the unit directory
IS protocol discovery after all, not function discovery.

Is this just the beginning of this disscusion?

GL>Yes

Was there any technical disscusion to backup the idea
for the function discovery be incorporated with 1212?

GL>Some

I am afraid that we will have to start taking other buses
(using IEEE1212) into consideration.

GL>They may feel the same way.

This group would be the PWG/PWG-C, not a new group,right?

GL>This is part of the 1212 WG - we're merely a task group.
GL>My plan is that this will be discussed at PWG meetings.
GL>I can't speak for PWG-C or DSI-WG or 1394 TA.
