As David says below, Last call implementer review feedback is very welcome.

I personally am reaching out to implementers in Microsoft, and so far
haven't uncovered any major issues (barring a clarification that I sent two
days ago to the mailing list).

I have now posted the iSCSI Last Call review slides that I used in internal
reviews.  This covers both iSCSI drafts in Last Call.  Given the size of the
consolidated draft, you may take advantage of the slides in speeding up your
reviews.  Please drop me a note if you'd like to see something

  Subject: [storm] iSCSI drafts - Last Call update and extension
  Importance: High
  Reminder: the two iSCSI drafts are in WG Last Call:
  			iSCSI Protocol (Consolidated)
         Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI) SAM
  Please send all technical comments to the storm mailing list
  Editorial comments may be sent directly to the draft editors:
  - iSCSI Protocol (Consolidated): Mallikarjun Chadalapaka
  - iSCSI SAM (new features): Frederick Knight <>
  A new version of the SAM draft is expected sometime soon to correct
  problems in the title, abstract, and IANA registry text (the IANA changes
  were discussed in Quebec City - they mostly affect the range of
  values, not the actual values used in these two drafts).
  I've been reaching out to a number of implementation groups at EMC,
  VMware and Dell, along with the Linux implementers.  I have some feedback
  - one of the EMC implementation groups looked at the SAM draft and the
  changes that the consolidated iSCSI draft makes to the existing RFCs and
  indicated that they saw no problems with the changes.
  August seems to be a slow month for everyone.  Therefore the WG Last Call
  on these two drafts is EXTENDED to midnight, US Eastern Time on Tuesday,
  September 6.
