+  - Project Lead (PL) - involved in all work areas at higher level,
+    focusing on requirements definitions, design and work reviews,
+    acceptance.
+  - For work areas with large number of deliverables there could be
+    multiple TLs e.g. for operations, framework or test refactor.
+  - FD.io CSIT owners' initials listed with suffix strings:
+    "[TL;DT1..DTn;PL]", contact details at the end of this note.

+
+Plan Timeline
+-------------
