Martin can you post that plus the new texts for P143 joined (was joined by) and P144 joined with (gained member by). I am busy for the next few hours but might have time later tonight.

Here are the declarations of P107 as a shortcut. No changes were made to E85, but to E66:

====================
E66 Formation

Subclass of: 	E7 Activity
E63 Beginning of Existence
		
Scope note: 	This class comprises events that result in the formation of a formal or informal E74 Group of people, such as a club, society, 
association, corporation or nation.

E66 Formation does not include the arbitrary aggregation of people who do not act as a collective.
The formation of an instance of E74 Group does not mean that the group is populated with members at the time of formation. In order to 
express the joining of members at the time of formation, the respective activity should be simultaneously an instance of both E66 Formation 
and E85 Joining.

Examples:	
	the formation of the CIDOC CRM Special Interest Group
	the formation of the Soviet Union
	the conspiring of the murderers of Caesar

Properties:
P95 has formed (was formed by): E74 Group
=======================
NO CHANGES FOR:

E85 Joining

Subclass of: 	E7 Activity

Scope note: 	This class comprises the activities that result in an instance of E49 Actor becoming a member of an instance of E74 Group. This 
class does not imply initiative by either party.

Typical scenarios include becoming a member of a social organisation, becoming employee of a company, marriage, the adoption of a child by a 
family and the inauguration of somebody into an official position.
	
Examples:	
	The election of Sir Isaac Newton as Member of Parliament for the University of Cambridge to the Convention Parliament of 1689
	The inauguration of Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev as leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in 1985
	The implementation of the membership treaty between EU and Denmark  January 1. 1973


Properties:
P143 joined (was joined by): E39 Actor
P144 joined with (gained member by) E74 Group
====================================================
P107 has current or former member (is current or former member of)

Domain:		E74 Group
Range:		E39 Actor
Quantification:		many to many (0,n:0,n)

Scope note:	This property relates an E39 Actor to the E74 Group of which he or she is a member.

Groups, Legal Bodies and Persons, may all be members of Groups. A Group necessarily consists of more than one Person.
This property is a shortcut of the more fully developed path from E74 Group through P144 joined with (gained member by), E85 Joining, P143 
joined (was joined by) to E39 Actor.

Examples:	
	Moholy Nagy (E21) is current or former member of Bauhaus (E74)
	National Museum of Science and Industry (E40) has current or former member The National Railway Museum (E40)
======================================================
P143 joined (was joined by)

Domain:		E85 Joining
Range:		E39 Actor
Subproperty of: 	E5 Event. P11 had participant (participated in): E39 Actor

Quantification:	many to many, necessary (1,n:0,n)

Scope note:	This property identifies the instance of E39 Actor that becomes member of a E74 Group in an E85 Joining.

	Joining events allow for describing people becoming members of a group with a more detailed path from E74 Group through P144 joined with 
(gained member by), E85 Joining, P143 joined (was joined by) to E39 Actor, compared to the shortcut offered by P107 has current or former 
member (is current or former member of).


Examples:	
	The election of Sir Isaac Newton as Member of Parliament to the Convention Parliament of 1689 joined Sir Isaac Newton
	The inauguration of Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev as leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in 1985 joined  Mikhail 
Sergeyevich Gorbachev
	The implementation of the membership treaty January 1. 1973 between EU and Denmark joined Denmark (E40)
P144 joined with (gained member by)

Domain:		E85 Joining
Range:		E74 Group
Subproperty of: 	E5 Event. P11 had participant (participated in): E39 Actor
Quantification:	many to many, necessary (1,n:0,n)

Scope note:	This property identifies the instance of E74 Group of which an instance of E39 Actor becomes a member through an instance of E85 
Joining.
Although a Joining activity normally concerns only one instance of E74 Group, it is possible to imagine circumstances under which becoming 
member of one Group implies becoming member of another Group as well.

Joining events allow for describing people becoming members of a group with a more detailed path from E74 Group through P144 joined with 
(gained member by), E85 Joining, P143 joined (was joined by) to E39 Actor, compared to the shortcut offered by P107 has current or former 
member (is current or former member of).
