Re: +++Interim Status:Ballot: Press Release for RPR (802.17)

Roger, thank you for taking the time to edit the draft press release.  You
have certainly improved the text.

My particular biases would have me reject the proposed change from
"standard" to "project" in the sentence:
The new standard will use existing Physical Layer specifications and will
develop new PHYs where appropriate.

Other than that, I endorse the remainder of your suggestions.  Thanks again.

Best regards,

Robert D. Love
