From my post 627 PM--if the time on the website is UTC which I believe it is.  The crew announced the opening as soon as they came out of the LOS I referenced in an earlier post.

I believe removal is planned for August 16th, followed by EVA (Jeff and Kate) on August 18th.
Beginning of August 16th GMT is EVR Ops start and August 17th is the EVR backup date incase of any SSRMS/SPDM issues. Some issues that have popped up over the last several EVR events have resulted in the EVR activities being moved to the left to allow for the additional EVR day. Previously it was stated that the PMA-2 power-up and systems checkout is to occur the day before the EVR and will be powered up again before the start of the EVA.

The end effector camera on the SSRMS appears to be doing a survey of PMA-2 to verify it's condition after years of leading the ISS through space without any use since the retirement of the Shuttle.
