Manal you are a treasure, thanks for taking the time to synchronize our timeline with the PFP. It seems like you have accurately identified various places in which our understanding of the process has changed since the development of the timeline. All of the suggestions you make should be accepted and incorporated into a revised timeline, in my view.

> 3. Step 8 of the timeline starts with "The NTIA reviews and accepts the
