Re: [council] Draft WHOIS terms of reference
It is a stretch to say that this paragraph provides a definition of the whois purpose. No where does it indicate that this is the purpose of whois.
The current draft purpose in the whois ToR is just too broad and exceeds the scope of its original mission - which is *technical* in nature. Nor does this draft give adequate attention to the privacy and other civil liberty concerns that must be reconciled with the whois policy.
NCUC has prepared some edits to the current draft that could fix these deficiencies for discussion at the tele-meeting on the 12th that should be forwarded very soon to this list.
I hope we can consider improvements to the current ToR draft in the interests of protecting civil liberties and keeping with whois' original mission.
