T11 History: At the June 2007 T11 Plenary, under agenda item 11.2, Craig Carlson (QLogic) moved and Roger Hathorn (IBM) seconded to approve the project proposal for FC-BB-5 (T11/07-196v2) and to forward the project proposal for FC-BB-5 (T11/07-196v2) to INCITS for further processing. This requires a 2/3 meeting vote. The motion passed 33 Favoring, 0 Opposing, 0 Abstaining, 12 Not Voting. At the October 2008 T11 Plenary, in behalf of the T11.3 Chair, Bill Martin (Emulex) requested the T11 Chair to perform a Letter Ballot for approval of forwarding Revision 1.03 of FC-BB-5 (T11/08-569v1), Project 1871-D, to INCITS for first public review. The letter ballot closed on November 14, 2008, and passed with a vote of Y29-N04-A10-DNV03. At the June 2009 T11 Plenary, Craig Carlson (QLogic) moved and Landon Noll (Cisco) seconded to accept T11/09-010vA as the resolution of the letter ballot comments on FC-BB-5 and to forward FC-BB-5 revision 2.00 (T11/09-056v5), Project 1871-D, to INCITS for further processing including public review. INCITS RD-2 requires approval of this question in accord with the 2/3 rule, as determined by roll call. The motion met the 2/3 rule, with 28 Favoring, 0 Opposing, 1 Abstaining, 6 Not Voting. The public review closed successfully on August 17, 2009, with no comments received. The standard has been approved by ANSI and published on May 2010 as INCITS 462:2010.
