1) Opens
2) Call for any related patent disclosures
3) Review of ARs:

Walter:  Update BIRD 122 or write a new BIRD for the solution
         mentioned in the Press Release
         - done

Ambrish: Send email to the IBIS-ATM reflector regarding
         BIRD 147 status
         - not done

Any other AR-s?

Old ARs:

Arpad:  Review the documentation (annotation) in the macro libraries.
        - deferred until a demand arises or we have nothing else to do

4) PAM4 BIRD                                                 (Walter)
   - introduction
   - "immediately table it"

5) Press release BIRD for analog buffer modeling             (Walter)
   - introduction
   - discussion

6) BIRD 155 New AMI API to Resolve Dependent Model Parameter (Fangyi)
   - need a motion to un-table it for discussion
   - introduction
   - discussion

7) BIRD 156 IBIS-AMI Extension for Mid-channel Redriver      (Fangyi)
   - introduction
   - discussion

8) BIRD 131  IBIS-AMI repeaters,  "Redriver" proposal (Walter/Fangyi)
   - questions, comments?

9) BIRD 147  Back-channel support                           (Ambrish)
   - update, questions, comments?

10) BIRD 128  Allow AMI_parameters_out to pass AMI_parameters_in
              data on calls to AMI_GetWave
    - update, questions, comments?

11) BIRD 154  Using IBIS-AMI Leaf Labels in List Parameters  (Walter)
    - update, questions, comments?

12) Info, Out, InOut BIRD                                     (Arpad)
    - latest wording includes "in order to be compliant with this
      specification, Model_Specific parameters ... must not ...",
      and omits the word "simulation" so it's meaning doesn't have
      to be defined
    - questions/comments/discussion?

13) Eye Mask definition                                       (Arpad)
    - Rx_Receiver_Sensitivity is the equivalent of the vertical
      (or voltage) part of an eye mask.  It would make sense to
      define the horizontal (timing) portion of the eye mask also.
    - questions/comments/discussion?

14) DLL error trapping and return codes                 (Greg Edlund)
    - address the nasty condition where the DLL and tool crash
      without a trace.  The EDA vendor says, "I can't help you
      because I can't see inside the model."  The model vendor
      says, "I can't help you because I don't own that tool."
      The user is left with a non-functional model.

15) What is the purpose of the specification?  Describe the syntax
    and rules of the syntax, or tell the reader how to make models?
    - questions/comments/discussion?

Tabled topics:

"AMI_ResolveDependentParam" function proposal             (Fangyi)

BIRD 150, Dependency Table                                (Walter)
