Bleg: Who is on the Murder Commission and Where is Their Report?

Justice Minister Heiko Maas formed a commission last year to reform the definition of murder in Germany's Penal Code. The current version dates from 1941 and is supposedly tainted by the National Socialist criminal-law philosophy of 'criminal types' — that is, focusing on the nature of the criminal rather than the act.

You can read everywhere on the Internet that Maas formed an 'expert commission' that submitted a long report with suggested reforms (g) to the definition. However, after quite a bit of searching, I haven't been able to find any information about either the commission or the report. It must be out there somewhere, right? Can anyone help?
