CSM 6 Activities Summary

All this data is potentially out of date, and should be taken with a truckload of salt


This is a brief summary of major topics that the CSM has been discussing with CCP "behind the scenes", roughly ordered by the date at which the discussion ended (because the CSM secretary is lazy and just looked up the last post dates in the CSM internal forum). Minor stuff has been omitted.

Please take care not to read too much into particular discussion topics. Just because CSM is discussing "X" with CCP does not mean that CCP has any plans to do "X". It may have been a topic raised by CSM.
