[Freeipmi-users] DCMI questions.

Having looked at the DCMI spec and played around with DCMI support on a few 
SP's I have a couple of questions people here might know the answers to.

-  Are there people actively working on DCMI or is it considered stable and 
finished.  The Intel DCMI site doesn't mention any working group.

-       The 'Exception Actions' list in Get/Set Power Limit appears to be a 
bitmask mapping to actions the service processor will take if the power limit 
is exceeded for too long a time.   Other than bit 1 which is defined as 'hard 
power off the server' the rest of the values are vendor specific?  Are there 
plans to codify other values into the standard?

-       There are two sampling periods referred to in the spec - bytes 15-18 of 
Get Power Reading and bytes 14-15 of Get/Set Power Limit.  Are these the same?  
If not, does this mean the Get Power Reading value is read-only and set by the 
BMC manufacturer?

Thanks for any and all insights,
