1. Comments on Pasadena Recommendations to Promote Equity
From: AASWOMEN Editors

The deadline for comments on the Pasadena Recommendations to Promote
Equity in Astronomy has passed, and we have received thoughtful
comments from about 15 readers.  We will summarize these suggestions
in a future issue (or issues) of AASWOMEN, and the Committee on the
Status of Women in Astronomy will use these comments as a guide in
producing the final revision of the Recommendations.  Thanks to those
who took the time to read the Recommendations and contribute comments.

2. Comments on AASWOMEN Job Postings
From: AASWOMEN Editors

Last week, we solicited comments on how/whether we should post all job
ads that are submitted to AASWOMEN.  We received a number of comments
and suggestions--thanks to all of you.  Because of the travel and work
schedules of the editors, we haven't had a chance to compile and/or
summarize the comments yet, but we will get back to this issue in the
October 8 or October 15 edition.  Until any decisions are made about
a possible new format, we will continue to post the entire listing
that is submitted to us.
