[vhdl-200x] CFV: Proposal to Merge P1604 into P1076

The 1604 WG is also known as the library IEEE WG. Informally, its scope was to define what design units could be placed within the VHDL STD and IEEE libraries. Formally, its scope is:

  The standard will specify a process for determining which items are
  permitted to reside in the predefined library named STD, defined in
  IEEE Standard 1076, and the library named IEEE, referenced in associated
  standards (such as 1164). This standard will also specify requirements
  on the internal documentation in the source code for such items.

Peter Ashenden is the current chair of the 1604 WG. Peter and I believe that the scope of 1604 can be easily incorporated into the scope of 1076. Such incorporation would streamline the DASC organization and help to keep what are currently related but separate WGs synchronized.

The suspense (close) of the vote is 28 Mar 04, midnight. Please submit your vote on the issue:

Should the P1604 WG (scope) be merged into P1076?

1. ____ Affirmative (optional comments will be recorded).

2. ____ Negative (no comments).

3. ____ Negative with comments...

4. ____ Abstain.

Note: To alleviate any potential confusion due to my comment in the summary of the 1164/1076 merger vote results email, I do have a roster of WG members. This is the vhdl-200x email list. Voting members are those members of the vhdl-200x email list who are also DASC members. Observer members are those members of vhdl-200x email list who are not DASC members. My action item to document the roster is to simply put all the necessary information together in one place (e.g., a spreadsheet). Once I have done this for DASC, I will publish the roster at www.eda.org/vhdl-200x (only names under voting and observer headings so spammers won't have email addresses, etc. to mine).

If you are unsure whether you are a DASC member, please see the DASC roster at www.dasc.org. The DASC web page contains a link to the DASC roster and to the DASC membership application.

Finally, I would like to remind all that active participation is a requirement to maintain voting membership in the WG. This is true today and will likely remain true in the future. Active participation is measured by response to calls for vote on WG issues.
