    Since many of you who are on this reflector do not receive T10
    announcements, I've posted a report of the SBP-2 study group that convened
    last Friday in Huntington Beach, CA (it may be downloaded from
    ftp://ftp.t10.org/t10/document.00/00-371r0.pdf). Please refer to the PDF
    file for more detailed information; a brief summary of the study group
    results are as follows:

    1) There is consensus that enhancements and extensions to SBP-2 are
    appropriate and timely.

    2) A revision of SBP-2 should be commenced and include the work items
    discussed in the report.

    3) With respect to one work item in particular, isochronous facilities for
    SBP-2, there is recognition that significant effort has taken place in the
    last two years in the area of AV disks and that the locus of that expertise
    is the 1394 Trade Association. The T10 members present at the study group
    meeting wish to find a suitable venue (or venues) for the standards
    activity so that the broadest possible participation of experts is encouraged.

    Because of the importance of the last item, I will be presenting a briefing
    on SBP-2 standards activity during the Architecture working group meeting
    Thursday, October 26 in Redmond, WA. I know that not ALL of the 1394 PWG
    participants are 1394 Trade Association members, so I'd like to extend an
    invitation to nonmembers to attend the Architecture working group.

    This will be an opportunity to explore the ways in which isochronous SBP-2
    might enable product innovation in the realm of printers and scanners.
    Because it is important to engage broad participation and because there
    will be a discussion of future meeting sites amenable to all participants,
    I encourage your attendance at the Architecture working group.
