    I thank youfor your ID of Progress.
    I have always found it difficult to handle progress and solyuz 
    launches to the ISS because new elsets are only
    publicly available after orbital changes from Space Track, unlike the 
    protocol for shuttle launches.
    By the time Shuttle launches to the ISS have stopped, and nearly all 
    contact is via the
    Russian federation Space agency I hope a better  universal and 
    inclusive protocol has been
    established for supply and crew replacement.
