  • Grant walked through the final draft. Please send in your changes and then we will publish this spec
  • Optional Features
    • Shared BMC -- what is the spec for mezz card or dedicated management network
    • Graphical console -- VGA? only, full res?, utilizing low bandwidth so need to be careful. BMC..
    • Inventory Expanded
  2nd the opinion that peripherals should be enumerated -Per
  • Identifying revisions and type. Type proposal was a 4 byte number with first byte identifying broader category like motherboard, networking or storage etc and remaining 3 bytes pointing to a spec submission to OCP in that broad category. Remaining information like vendor and device etc can be obtained by the spec. Final agreement was to use a 2 byte number instead of 3 due to byte alignment reasons.
