I vote to approve, with the attached recommended edits. In addition: *The release asks people to "visit http://www.ieee802.org/17 ". That site is currently empty. It should contain something before you tell people to check it out. *I disagree with Buzz's comments about deleting reference to new PHYs. That's because the PAR title (which probably ought to be mentioned in the release) is "Resilient Packet Ring Access Method & Physical Layer Specifications". However, I think it's confusing to say, in the first paragraph, "to create a new MAC layer standard for Resilient Packet Rings" and then later start talking about PHYs.
