Approve Virtio 1.0 CSD05 and CSPRD05 for public review

Should the TC approve CSD05 Working Draft as a Committee Specification Draft, and submit the draft for public review as CSPRD05 Committee Specification Public Review Draft?

Please vote Yes if you agree with all of the following.
If you disagree, please vote No.

A Full Majority Vote is required for this motion to pass -
Abstentions are not counted.

I move that:

1. The TC approves virtio 1.0 Working Draft CSD05
and all associated artifacts packaged together in
as a Committee Specification Draft and designate the TeX version
of the document as authoritative.

2. The TC approves that same Committee Specification Draft
(repackaged as Committee Specification Public Review Draft 05:
Virtual I/O Device (VIRTIO) Version 1.0 CSPRD05) and all
associated artifacts packaged together in
be released for 15 day public review.
The changes made since Virtio 1.0 CS03 are identified in
files virtio-v1.0-csprd05-diff.pdf and/or
virtio-v1.0-csprd05-diff.html within this package.

3. The TC accepts the following changes to the specification,
(already included in the above drafts):

makediff: cleanup using begingroup/endgroup

This seemed like a good idea originally: replace perl hacks with
tex hacks. However adding begingroup and endgroup within macros
used by latex-diff breaks its assumption that these are low level
tex and can be used in arbitrary situations, e.g. cross the
boundaries of environments, use mis-matching begin and end
instructions (DIFaddbegin with DIFaddendFL), etc.

Let's go back to the original work-around:

work around xetex bug

Too many color directives produce corrupted output
and this warning:
WARNING ** Color stack overflow. Just ignore.

Use script to reduce # of these directives.

Reminder: A Voting Member must be active in a TC to maintain voting rights. As
the Virtio TC has adopted a standing rule to conduct business only by
electronic ballot, without Meetings, a Voting Member who fails to cast a ballot
in two consecutive Work Product Ballots loses his or her voting rights at the
close of the second ballot missed.
