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 (storm@ietf.org).
Editorial comments may be sent directly to the draft editors:
- iSCSI Protocol (Consolidated): Mallikarjun Chadalapaka <cbm@chadalapaka.com>
- iSCSI SAM (new features): Frederick Knight <knight@netapp.com>

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 allocatable 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.
