[council] Some initial thoughts on Working Groups
Hi,Attached is a brief set of notes on considerations for forming WGs. This is the deliverable that was discussed briefly at our Thursday meeting in ND. It is my personal opinion formed from participation in and chair of many working groups, and similar groups, over the years. as such it has no status other then as a suggestion for a possible point from which to start conversations. I am sure there are more considerations then what I have included and I am also sure that there are many ways of looking at this issue that I have not touched upon.
I believe that we will need to spend some time on our plans to dealing with the GNSO restructuring at our next meeting on 27 March. At that time I will suggest that we form a standing Committee to work on guidelines for WGs. Perhaps this Standing Committee will also be able to deal with the questions on PDP as they are fundamentally linked with WGs.
In any case this draft is not for discussion at today's (6 March) meeting and is meant as one starting place for the discussion we, the GNSO community and the ICANN community at large need to engage in.
