I'm giving this a standalone as Philip's interviewed a bunch of GSDO managers for this and it really is a great update to a lot of articles we've run on the LETF and ML.

The Kennedy Space Center recently took further steps in NASA's efforts to send humans beyond low-Earth orbit as the core stage inter-tank umbilical, or CSITU, was lifted to the mobile launcher for a fit check. The mobile launcher's crew access arm also was transported from Precision Fabricating and Cleaning in Cocoa, Florida, to the center.

Since the ML isn't going to be used to fly crew until after the 3-year modification, why add the Crew access arm.  Just going to take back off without use.

AFAIA, the CAA will be used for EM-1 for personnel access including Launch Day.
