    Dear Isabelle,
    The members of the RDA Repository Platforms for Research Data (RPRD)
    Interest Group (IG), the other co-chairs of the RPRD IG, and I very much
    appreciate receiving your note, below, indicating that the RPRD IG session
    proposal for RDA P15 has been provisionally accepted. We also appreciate
    receiving the revisions that you requested for improving that session
    proposal. Please note that the following changes have been completed within
    the RPRD IG session proposal for RDA P15 to address the requested revisions
    and let us know if any additional revisions are needed.
    Regarding the need for allocating timing on the agenda and for allocating
    time on the agenda for discussion, each presentation has been allocated 9
    minutes and the discussion has been allocated 27 minutes within the Meeting
    Regarding the need to describe the intended outcomes for a successful
    session, a sentence has been added to the Meeting Objectives to describe
    the intended outcomes of the session, which include "the identification of
    current approaches for implementing data repository platforms, criteria for
    selecting particular implementation approaches, and trade-offs and issues
    for weighing such criteria."
    We believe that these revisions have improved the RPRD IG session proposal
    for RDA P15, which may be viewed on the following webpage.
