SD-WG would like to establish the CDA Implementation Guide submission deadline as two full working days before the "must open" date for the ballot. The "must open" date is 30 days prior to the ballot close, which in recent cycles has been set as mid-night the Tuesday of the week before the next WGM. For the next cycle, the ballot close is Tuesday, Sept 8. This means that this content must be in by mid-night Wednesday, August 6.
