I understand.  I believe the corresponding issues in the Concepts
document are


However, it would be helpful to know if there is something amiss with
the specific changes in the Primer made in response to your comments.

The disclaimer you refer to necessarily refers to the whole document. 
However, I'm not aware of any pending changes to those specific sections
affected by your comments, and there probably won't be changes, unless
you yourself think changes are needed.  (There may be some changes to
Section 4.5, which is a new section, and some of the example numbers
need to change as a result of the introduction of that section, but
nothing else that I'm aware of).  We wouldn't have asked for your
comments on those sections unless we felt they were stable enough for
you to reasonably review.  

I'd also note that, in this new version, I have attempted to address not
only the specific issue you raised in pfps-15, but your comments (in
many cases pre-last-call) on a number of other issues (the specific
issues are listed in the "Changes" section at the end of the Primer; 
these issues are linked to the corresponding places in the Primer where
the changes have been made).  You may also want to review the other
changes listed in the Comments section of the Primer corresponding to
the other comments you have made.
