Re: [802SEC] [EXTERNAL] Re: [802SEC] Draft Press Release



                I have updated the draft Press Release to address the comments from Geoff.  I have not seen any other comments.


                Attached is the updated draft Press Release.  I will wait a few more days and then initiate a EC email ballot, with Paul’s approval.

IF this is a REVISION which has already been approved


The text: "Amendment to IEEE 802.19.1™ standard to include geolocation-capable devices"

is NOT appropriate.


It is not an amendment, it is a whole new standard which (I assume) contains both old and new material.

The proper name for the standard is:       IEEE Std 802.19.1™


The use of the future tense in: "to include geolocation-capable devices"

because the standard is already approved, therefore the standard "does include geolocation-capable devices"


Some standards orgs don't consider their standards to be approve and/or in force until they are published.

That is not the case with the IEEE-SA
