      • Final content deadline is this Sunday
      • Discussion over at what point we tell people they don't meet the criteria to go to ballot
      • Grahame: We will not publish with bad dependencies
      • Missing examples are okay for ballot
      • At risk to not go to ballot: Vital Signs, DME Orders, DQM, HRex, PDDI unless they address their issues
      • Reviewed issues with each; Melva notes in spreadsheet
      • Grahame will follow up with FMG on Zulip with any ongoing issues
      • Perhaps developers should attend FMG meetings prior to deadlines
    • Community Feedback on FHIR R4B options?
      • Paul reports that FM discussed and, in terms of the work they would want to go into an R5, if the first ballot was next September they could reasonably complete what they want to do. If it was May, they'd have to compromise but could still do meaningful things. If it was January, meaningful things won't be possible. 
      • Grahame has some feedback to go over next week
