4. Questions
The meeting noted Contribution 1, which includes the set of Questions for the new study period that were approved by WTSA-12.

A revised text for Question 11/11 – Protocols and networks test specifications; frameworks and methodologies – was agreed. The revised text is to follow up on WTSA-12’s instruct to SG 11 and SG 17 to discuss the best way to transfer from SG17 to SG11 the part of Q12/17 (ex QS/17, continuation of Q14/17) on TTCN-3. SG11 and SG 17 experts held various electronic meetings in January 2013 to find a solution. By agreement among both Study groups it was decided that TTCN-3 development and maintenance work stays in SG17, which is lead SG on formal languages, while the part of QS/17 on conformance testing and methodologies and framework move to SG11. TD 33 (GEN/11) and TD 34 (GEN/11) were submitted to both SG11 and SG 17 with the goal to issue the same proposal via LS to TSAG. The liaison statement included in TD 34 (GEN/11) will be sent via liaison statement to TSAG for endorsement.

5. Liaison officers and Rapporteurs
The list of Rapporteurs can be found in TD 32 Rev.3 (GEN/11).
The list of Liaison Officers can be found in TD 29 Rev.2 (GEN/11).

6. FG M2M Service Layer
FG M2M mandate was extended of eight months, until the end of 2013 (see TD-36 ”Report on the activities of FG M2M”)
