Hi Charles,

It seems the definitions of classes of changes have changed. My recollection of discussion in June was that we planned to import as-is the change classes. You have changed

 "Corrections that do not affect conformance"


 "Corrections to references"

I may have missed the discussion that led up to that change. But as I said my recollection was that we wanted to import change classes as is.

Sorry if I've missed discussion about this.
