SCR 3-1132: Fix invalid GENERAL_CLASSIFICATION_TYPE values in PSDD

Priority: medium

Problem Summary

In recent years, a number of keywords have been entered into the PSDD with new or erroneous values for GENERAL_CLASSIFICATION_TYPE. Correct values are needed for production of Appendix F, “Data Element Classified Listings”, of the PDF version of the PSDD. This SCR proposes to make the necessary changes to the PSDD to fully implement or correct these values.

My vote is to “Approve direct to implementation”. Both of these SCR were clearly written and defined a good solution. It seems strange that a “Reject” vote means approval to implement.
This also seemed precedurally strange. Asking for just enough “votes” to reject, rather than calling for a vote (and counting all of them).
