Re: [802SEC] Draft IEEE P802.3az Energy-efficient Ethernet press release

Dear EC members,

While the motion in relation to the press release on Monday passed there 
was a request that the sub heading be changed to read  '....World's First 
Standard for Ethernet specifically directed at power reduction.'. That 
change has been made and the updated draft of the press release is 
attached below. Since the Working Group voted yesterday to progress IEEE 
P802.3az to Working Group ballot I will inform the IEEE that the press 
release can indeed be released.

Best regards,
