Meetings Between The Society of Pius X and Vatican to Be Recorded and Filmed

In All Things has a interesting tidbit in this piece Vatican-SSPX discussions: an update

The "conversations" follow a systematic method. First, the topic. Then, the SSPX sends a paper laying out its doubts. The Vatican representatives answer in writing. Then both sides meet to discuss the exchanges.
The meetings will be filmed and recorded by both sides, which may indicate a healthy mutual scepticism but will make for fascinating material for future historians. The conclusions of each discussion are then taken to the Pope and the Superior General of the SSPX

I must say that seems a tad unusual but at this stage a good thing perhaps. However it does show that a final result is a long ways off.
