Not sure if there are any agenda items we need to cover on Monday since Vlad is still on vacation and the formal ask for GPL only components is still waiting for official response.

Woody, do you have any items you need to cover or should we just reconvene on Nov 7th after Vlad returns?

Regards, Arlin
