I am responding in the affirmative although I think the statement about
"developing new PHYs as necessary" should be deleted.  If a new PHY is
required, a separate PAR will be submitted for approval and should be
announced at that point in time.  We don't want to give the
impressions that they have license to create new PHYs without a separate
justification and approval cycle. Thanx,  Buzz

Move: Approve (in principal) the Attached Press Release for 802.17

The Standards Board is expected to approve the Project for Resilient Packet
Rings on 7December2000. This notice is intended to be released at this time,
so I ask your indulgence for a speedy ballot. I will send out a ballot
updated tally on Friday.

1) This press release was discussed on the 802.17 reflector. A final tally
of members of the reflector, after several rewordings was 18-0-0.

2) Note that I expect IEEE-SA to reword, so this is approved "in principal".
