Description Please vote Yes if you agree with all of the following. If you disagree, please vote No. If you don't have an opinion, please vote Abstain. I move that: Conditional on the TC approving unanimously the proposed resolutions to outstanding ballots: https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/virtio/ballot.php?id=2771 https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/virtio/ballot.php?id=2772 https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/virtio/ballot.php?id=2773 https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/virtio/ballot.php?id=2774 to resolve issues VIRTIO-130, VIRTIO-133, VIRTIO-135, VIRTIO-136 respectively. The TC resolves that the following, previously and separately approved, changes to the specification are all Non-Material: VIRTIO-129: legacy: clean up virtqueue layout definitions Generalize ”Legacy Interfaces: A Note on Virtqueue Layout” to allow for different alignment requirements. Have pci and ccw refer to that section for legacy devices. Remove the double definition of virtqueue alignment (which referred to legacy, but was not tagged as such) from the ccw section. See 2.4.2, 4.1.5.1.4.1 and 4.3.2.2.2. VIRTIO-118: ccw: clarify basic channel commands ”Basic channel commands” seems to be not as clear as it could, so let’s spell out which channel commands we refer to. See 4.3.1. VIRTIO-116: ccw: allow WRITE_STATUS to fail We want to be able to fail setting a status on the device (e.g. FEATURES_OK if the device can’t work with the features negotiated). The easiest way to do that is to allow the device to fail the WRITE_STATUS command by posting a command reject. See 4.3.2.3. VIRTIO-135: virtio-ring: comment fixup virtio_ring.h included with spec has this text: /* Support for avail_idx and used_idx fields */ it should really refer to avail_event and used_event. See Appendix A. VIRTIO-136: document idx field in virtqueue used ring Section 2.4.8 The Virtqueue Used Ring listed the idx field, but never documented it. See 2.4.8. The TC resolves to request a Special Majority Vote for the advancement of the draft virtio-v1.0-wd03, with the above changes, with the addition of a changelog listing the above changes, as a Committee Specification virtio-v1.0-cs03. Location of the specification draft with the above changes: https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/virtio/download.php/55300/virtio-1.0-wd03.zip This archive includes the editable Tex sources, specification in PDF and HTML formats, as well as versions with changes since CS02 highlighted. For convenience, specification in PDF format with above changes highlighted is provided: https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/virtio/download.php/55301/virtio-1.0-wd03-diff.pdf You can also use the "revision history" chapter to locate the changes more easily. -------------------------------------- Reminder: A Voting Member must be active in a TC to maintain voting rights.
