Hi Claire, hi all,
I have written a brief abstract text for the Instruments document,
Rajini is currently adding on it.
Several basic points:
* Methodology for instrument selection will be elaborated more
transparently, potentially leading to changes in the current
selection, it mus become clearer why instruments were selected
* I would only include Tables 1a, 1b from the 5th edition in todays
* Any comparison between instruments seems only feasible for an 8th
June version
* It is still to early for complete author lists /orders as others
most likely will contribute
What else do you need for today?
