1. Updates to Statements of Interest (SOIs): No updates provided.

3. Next steps for Sub Group comment analysis:

-- Summarizing the sub group discussions into something more concise and digestible by the full WG.

-- Call out where commenters have identified the same elements (support for recommendations, for example).

-- Summaries are being included within the public comment review tool.

-- See proof of concept at tab 2.8.2 and column F here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MQmo1B6zBqGXYFRF2pKZXPhGmz0JfZhIaMxKIdVsT1g/edit#gid=110404450

Full WG, Wednesday, 13 March, 15:15-16:45

Work Track 5 Status:

-- Good mix of responses to the Supplemental Initial Report.

-- Two meetings to go through the General Comments and Preliminary Recommendations.

-- On pending strings: Will have more information on why some strings are still pending (help to inform discussion on closure of rounds.
