We appreciate your active discussion regarding the soft landing policy.
This is to declare the end of the Seven Days comment period on developing a common proposal according to the points commonly agreed before whether in the RPD or at PPMs.
So far we have Mark Elkins and Arsène Tungali as the only volunteers. We hope they can edit the commonly agreed view in a new policy update proposal document and work with other community members including authors of previous proposals that wish to lend their experience.
