The CMIP6 experimental design and organization has been agreed at the WGCM 18th Session in October 2014, see details on the CMIP Panel website at http://www.wcrp-climate.org/index.php/wgcm-cmip/about-cmip. Part of this covers the creation and timeline of the CMIP6 Data Request.
The data request is available through a repository, and the latest version is available here (updated November 17th, 2017):
An overview of the pressure levels proposed for atmospheric diagnostics is available for discussion (here).
