Subject: Re: [ubl] Agenda for Pacific UBL TC call 04 February 2015 01:00UTC - voting meeting

I am uncertain if I will be able to make the call this week as I am on travel. However, I have made a first pass of the Guideance document and made a few comments. It looks like a good start but I hope you consider my suggestions for update.
