    Dear Susan<br>
    <br>
    Regarding the merging of proposals, I don't think we should consider
    the option "should be merged with another" in the same grading scale
    from 1 to 5. <br>
    <br>
    If, as an example, a proposal receives scores 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, and 4
    from six different MAG members, its final average score is 2.5. This
    does not mean, however, that people agree that this proposal has a
    good potential to be merged with some other proposal, since
    potential for merging can be evaluated acoording to different
    criteria. <br>
    <br>
    I would prefer to have a "tick box" in addition to the score,
    whereby evaluators could indicate that the proposal, independently
    from the score it receives, has a good potential to be merged.<br>
    <br>
    Best<br>
    <br>
    Flavio<br>
