> Thanks, Manal. Indeed ever since the inaccuracy in step 7 was pointed out I have been thinking that we needed to revise the timeline. I think it would make sense to update the timeline language and publish it together with the proposal finalization process.
> I’ve attached an edited timeline <https://www.dropbox.com/s/n5pzeikw5fju9k8/TimelineDiscussion-v7-alc.docx?dl=0> that addresses your points 2 and 3 below and makes some editorial fixes. I’m not sure that I agree about your point 1 — or perhaps I just don’t know how to address it. I think the March-July time frame is when communities should be testing their arrangements, if they feel specific testing is warranted. Do you have a suggested edit for Step 4?
> Do others have comments on this? Could we try to wrap up the timeline document at the same time as the proposal finalization process (i.e., Monday) since the edits are minimal and at least the one I’ve proposed for step 7 takes language directly from the proposal finalization process?
