UNIT SIG took back the document as it was left at the beginning of this year, concentrating on addressing all the comments left in the document over the various revisions. The requirements, and their reasoning, about the interation between a Property Package and a PME regarding characterized properties, were revised and somewhat enhanced, even if this section contains an interaction which is out of scope of the current interface specification. Still, these requirements will serve as notes for adding new functionality to the interface design. Next is decided to merge the section summarizing the requirements set and the section listing how the requirements are fulfilled by the interface design. The revision progressed till the the middle of that section.

Next conference call is scheduled for October 17, 2018.
