Now, alignment: all 4 RTL "Ready-To-Latch-Indicators" must be switched to Green (indicating that Dragon was in the proper position for installation)

Crew is go to start Dragon ingress procedures
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

Once initial ingress was complete, the crew members got out of the vehicle to allow the air inside the spacecraft to pass through the filtration system of ISS (to prevent any risk of foreign objects or debris that could harm the crew members during activities inside Dragon)
