Let me do this again which includes my final reply to her. She did not
reply further. This should answer your question, Paul. I didn't ask for a
rewrite of the minutes nor a reprint of all the IARU Region 1 published
minutes. In my opinion, if an organization and/or magazine publisher(s),
or any news reporting organization publicizes a revised band chart, even
though it applies only to IARU Region 1 amateurs, any notes, caveats, or
supplemental information which are integral to the full understanding of
the chart, should also be included.

Reference news item:

The revised Region 1 band plan chart for 40 meters is shown, which was
defined on page 9 of the IARU Region 1's  final minutes. However, you
omitted the items on page 10 of the same minutes which further clarifies
the chart. The items include "Sideband Usage", "Definitions", and
"Notes". Without these items, the chart doesn't tell the whole story and
will, most likely, lead to confusion and concern.

Thank you for your note. Unfortunately, we can't reprint the final
plenary minutes. As such, we provided the link in the first sentence of
the article. This enables interested parties, such as yourself, to take a
closer look into it.

Have a good rest-of-Thanksgiving-weekend!

And, my final reply to her:
Thanks for the reply. I didn't say to reprint the entire plenary minutes,
but since you posted the chart of the revised 40 meter band, you should
have included the "Sideband Usage", "Definitions", and "Notes" that are
part of the chart. Without that information, the chart tells a different
story, which was my point.
