Good afternoon !

I saw your name in the manpage for smartctl on

I am the vice-chair of the INCITS T13 committee and wanted to know if you would be interested updating smartctl from ATA8-ACS to ACS-3 ?
ACS-3 has added more device statistics, and the new Device Statistics Notification (DSN) feature, and some other relevant features.

Would you be interested in discussing the new features with me ?

Thank You !!!
