Re: XAUI and 64b/66b


Good point. I ran out of room on the the front page to list the many folks from
the same company in support of this proposal :-)

I'll allow the chair to rule on your question since that's his job.

In this case, I had obtained advance permission from each individual referenced
on the front page of the XAUI/XGXS proposal to also list the company name.

Best Regards,
