I support it.


1. Sorry for missing the last meeting.  I wasn't available to give an
update on the status of the drafting committee that's working on an
option paper for our group, but I can report now that good early
progress has been made by email and in a Google Doc on some initial
notes that will be used for drafting of the paper.

2. I'm trying to organize a bilateral room for a face-to-face meeting
for that drafting committee, and will keep the group informed if that
