[Gnso-epdp-team] Major issue in the Data Elements workbooks

Hi Milton: 

I think Berry has been very careful to advise the team as the workbooks evolved (he has probably been the best at that of all of us). I note that his emails and descriptions made in meetings in LA and Barcelona describe how the analysis had evolved. He has been careful to maintain redline and clean versions so that all changes are visible and annotated the redlines to provide explanation. 

I think the awkwardly worded question that you caught and we are now changing was a result of Berry not feeling the freedom to make a significant change with out input from the group. 

Even though progress seems slow - our tools are evolving rather quickly. The support team works hard to keep the information clear - but there is a lot. 

At the end, I think the workbooks are better because of your intervention - thank you for that. 

Best regards,

As you know from our deliberations and meetings, people can get very picky about language and wordsmithing, so if you’re re-writing entire sections and then ask us to review them we need to know what you’ve done.
