Re: SBI changes

Mark,

In case you missed it from the agenda-email: we have the formation of
a Firmware & Platforms Services SIG on the agenda for the (joint)
Software HCs meeting today. Atish has kindly volunteered to be the
acting chair and we'll announce as soon as the draft charter is done.
The scope of the new SIG will be (at least) SBI, ACPI, UEFI and
bootloaders.

Philipp.

Just remember that something that depends on an SBI change can't get ratified until the SBI change is ratified.

If there is a roll up, there still needs to a TG governing it or it needs to be a fast track with the committee governing it and there needs to be a rat plan.

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.

Is this understanding correct ?

Anup


Thanks
