I'd like to comment on the other statements you have submitted, but
this one is particularly worth of immediate response:

As I stated in a message posted earlier today, I spoke with Wayne Tang
from Genoa about the PWG bake-off testing.

During that conversation I asked him *explicitly* about why no results
were displayed for the HP and Kyocera printers.  He stated that the HP
printer was NOT tested, as the HP folks had packed up the printer before
they could begin the tests.  (This concurs with my personal observation
of the event at the time.)

If the HP had indeed been tested, we would certainly like to see the
results as soon as possible.  Can you provide this?
