[Editorial note: A concern was raised that the late changes in the proposal did not allow for proper discussion on the ppml and that this change is not allowable.  The author claimed that the change was strictly editorial and that no substantive change was made to the proposal’s intent or meaning. The Chair asked the room which version of the policy should be discussed – the version in the discussion guide, or the latest revision. Based on a poll of the room, the decision was made to discuss the printed version, dated August 14th. The Chair made note to pursue the necessary administrative changes to prevent this situation from occurring in the future.]
