Hi Manisha,

Did you receive much feedback? Is there any update on this process?

I'm hoping the community chimed in. Unfortunately I did not have time in
your short period to comment. I'm currently in Kurdistan and have been
traveling quite a bit recently for some work before the holidays. I'd love
to hear what comments you received, and I'm sure the community would as

I'm looking forward to see the revisions and still happy to provide comment
as well. When I didnt' have time before your deadline, I let it slip, but I
don't believe we've heard on the list what resulted from your invitation
for comment, and it would be great to share with teh list.
