APT PPS Proposal Instructions Test Documents

Proposal Instruction Chapters contain requirements traceability numbers.
The Traceability Matrices provide the links to the test proposals.
PRs listed are some of the major ones for the templates; they are not a complete list of template changes.

xxx is a placeholder.

28 1.03 means observation 28 visit 1 exposure 3
28 by itself means observation 28 and may be specified if req is only observation level or
if the template only allows a single exposure in which case it means observation 28 visit 1 exposure 1.

#2 refers to a pattern ID

Note proposals starting with "9" are diagnostic proposals and are not expected
to run through the VP or load into the database.
