we have seen a number of SBI changes proposed (debug console, ap tee, ...).

will there be one big rev ala priv 1.12, small fast tracks , something else?

I also suggest that this either needs to be run out of the priv sw HC or convene a new TG. Can we conduct this conversation there (and create the appropriate group or committee mail aliases).
My understanding is that different TGs or SIGs will propose their own
SBI extensions. Once a set of changes for next SBI spec release are
finalized, the SBI TG can collect all new SBI extensions and prepare a
draft of the next SBI spec. It will be the responsibility of SBI TG to
complete the ratification process.
As per my discussions with Philip, there will be a Firmware & Platform
Services SIG
which will cover all the platform services specs (SBI, UEFI, ACPI).

It can spin off separate TGs for SBI/ACPI which will be actually
responsible to deliver
the next version of the SBI specification.

Is this understanding correct ?

That aligns w/ my recollection on how we'll handle updates to SBI.
Yup. That's what I was thinking as well. Fortunately, a number of new
extensions have started to take shape.
Instead of releasing a version of each new extension, it would be good
to have a release that combines all of them.
