Responsible: Ahern
Status: Still pending: On hold until resources can be found.

JUL2016­-001:  Consider developing “recipe” files for users in how they use MUSTANG.
Responsible:  Casey
Status:  Presented Jupyter Notebook with embedded R code to committee.  No change in progress in November 2017. CLOSED.

JUL2016­-002:  DMC will start generating network reports for the AK network and one temporary network that Vadim has (X8): They will provide feedback to Mary and the QA team at the DMC.
Responsible:  Mary, Vadim, and Natalia
Status: AK Network has been receiving monthly reports and acknowledges usefulness as a double-check. Not expanding to portable networks at this time, but we have a cooperative agreement with UU, a network with short period and strong motion instruments, and reporting will start soon. Reports are time consuming, consider providing networks with tools to create their own reports.

JUL2017-001:  Reach out to National Strong Motion Center, Menlo Park, for suggestions on good quality assurance metrics for strong motion data.
Responsible: Mary Templeton
Status: Mary contacted Chris Stevens and there is no concensus on metrics at this time. Will establish a channel of communication with NSMP (Chris Stevens and Lind Gee) to continue discusison and get recommendations when they become available.
