Apparently the backroom arguments have been heard and decided. The Royal Commission finally uploaded a redacted version of the 2015 Branch Manual.
Watchtower lawyers were looking to have as much redacted from this manual as possible. It ended up the only section that has redacted content is Section 4 addressing duties of the Personnel Committee. All the stuff about Bethelite life was redacted leaving only the part addressing judicial committees.
If readers have not already downloaded this thing now is your chance.
