Rasha, Flávio, Susan,

thank you for this proposal.

It is important that all MAG members review the proposal carefully as it is scheduled for review and approval on our Virtual MAG Meeting call this week (Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at  6 am UTC).     If you are not able to make the call, please send in comments so we are able to judge consensus.   

Time is tight given our WS review schedule and we need to make a decision.   Input from all MAG members is important as this will determine how the MAG reviews the WS proposal.

This proposal tackles only the second stage of the review process, that of evaluation by MAG members. The first stage (the Secretariat screening), as well as the third stage (final decisions re borderline cases, mergers, etc) remain unchanged. 
> I hope this proposal arrives at a middle ground for this year that takes care of most of the concerns raised. It also reduces the subjectivity in evaluation, and it considerably reduces the work load per MAG member. Many thanks to Flavio, who suggested the work distribution among MAG members, and to Susan for her comments on the whole process. I'm attaching the new proposal on the second stage of reviewing as well as the current document for the whole review process.
