Hi, Lisa and COGA TF, please see this draft summary of COGA's NAUR feedback

As with the Remote Meeting draft
shared earlier this evening, I recommend grouping our NAUR feedback into
two main sections:

   - Big Suggestions
   - Smaller Suggestions

My hope is that this structure and level of detail will make our team's
feedback as actionable and easy-to-skim as possible. Eager for your
thoughts, thanks!
