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.

Yes No discussion on VIRTIO-144 (re-adding VIRTIO_BLK_F_FLUSH and VIRTIO_BLK_F_CONFIG_WCE­)? It is a regression, so we should have them back for v1.0

Update: This is scheduled to be updated in cs04, so I'm fine with releasing cs03 as-is.
