Re: SC Reorganization / 1.3.4/5

Hi Michael,

The updated name for Identify Input Purpose is in the editors draft as it was approved as part of the issue 755 update.



From: Michael Gower


A side note: I notice Identify Common Purpose hasn't been renamed yet. Is that change yet to go through/complete CFC?
