Dear Nestor,

It sounds like we can make these minor edits and get this issue closed.  I am very glad that this is so.  I do recognize that we need to get closure with the other agencies, so if anyone else on the CESG can address this that would be good.

Not to stir up anything, but there was some confusion in the RIDs as to whether the ISO text defining what a "protocol" is was acceptable.  I understood that the expanded text refining each of the terms was to be removed, but that the definition itself was ok. You did not mention this explicitly, so I want to make sure that we are on the same page here.

Ciao, Peter

We have analysed your YB updated version.

ESA agreed with everything, but we have 2 small comments

Annex B.2.1, a, last paragraph.
Blue Books defining protocols must include a Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS) proforma as a normative annex
To be replaced by
Blue Books defining communications protocols must include a Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS) proforma as a normative annex

Note: This addition is to have the same meaning as you suggested in
A1       Overview
This annex provides the rationale, content guidelines and nominal structure for a CCSDS Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS) proforma. The PICS proforma is a required normative annex in all CCSDS Blue Books defining communications protocols.  Protocol Blue Books may request a waiver from the requirement.

Annex F, A.1 2nd paragraph
        Add a reference to the CCSDS Publications document for completeness

This is all and we have the YB for publication from the ESA side (there are still some minor conditions from the other agencies)
