I just got off the phone with Wayne Tang of Genoa, one of the persons
that conducted the Printer MIB testing at the bake-off.

He has assured me that I will be receiving a copy of the complete
results by the end of today.  Moreover, the other Genoa person at
the bake-off (I forget his name) is supposed to be writing up a
short paragraph summarizing their findings.

Be assured that I will forward the message to the PWG list just as
soon as I get it.  (I even promise not to "doctor" the results! ;-)
