Jeff Neuman reported on the joint task force chair and GNSO chair call.

The basic decisions were:
(1) Bruce Tonkin will announce a call for constituency statements for each of the task forces at the GNSO Council meeting on 19 Feb. Statements due 19 March 2004. Constituencies should begin drafting their statements as soon as possible, and adjust the statements as new data comes in. It is not appropriate to wait for all possible data to arrive before starting the process.

(2) The time lines for producing the final reports will be:
March 19, 2004 - Receive Constituency Statements
April 9, 2004 - Preliminary Task Force Report
April 29, 2004 - Public Comment Period Closes
May 20, 2004 - Final Report Due

(3) Task forces should begin drafting the preliminary task force report as soon as possible and progressively update the report as the constituency statements come in. Ie begin with some initial recommendations and debate them

Jeff Neuman suggested extending the timeline for the survey responses and inviting everyone to respond, by way of the GNSO constituency liaison list and the ICANN website.

Jeff Neuman resent the non marketing contact list and urged task force members to recontact people and do personal follow up to encourage responses.

A second survey was planned to send to the registries and registrars concerning the load on their servers, what kind of mechanisms they put in place to restrict access , what effect it has etc. Milton Mueller sent a set of questions to the mailing list for Jeff Neuman, Paul Stahura and himself to work separately on.
