Hi Silvia,

As a thought, and as a follow up to Maciej comments, it appears at this
time that we are starting to narrow down the viable options to one of 3
(Options 2, 3 and 7 AFAICT), and we can continue to discuss this on our
media call Wednesday (Thursday for you). I think the Chairs are suggesting
that we can submit change proposals for these three options and then
continue to work on details and specifics, further refining the CPs (and
even perhaps retiring one later on if that is the case).
