  • Thread-topic: Motion re. Whois Studies

Regarding agenda item 9 (Discuss Whois report - Start discussions on
what to ask for a bid on) for our 27 March 2008 meeting, I submit the
following motion:

1.      On 31 October 2007 the Council passed a motion to ". . .
initiate the following sequential actions: 1) Council shall provide
additional definition regarding the potential data gathering and study
requirements 2) staff shall provide the Council with rough cost
estimates for various components of data gathering and studies no later
than February 15th, 2008; 3) the Council will decide what data gathering
and studies would be pursued; and 4) staff will perform the resulting
data gathering and studies and report the results back to the Council"
(resolution 20071031-3 <http://gnso.icann.org/resolutions/> )
2.      On 6 December 2007 the Council initiated formation of a group of
volunteers to develop a proposed "format to solicit what studies should
be undertaken"
3.      On 20 December 2007 the Council reviewed and discussed the WHOIS
developed by the group and approved it with one additional column under
potential sources of data, asking proposers to comment on the challenges
of sourcing that data
4.      From 8 January through 15 February 2008 a public comment period
was held soliciting suggestions from the community for specific topics
of study on WHOIS that community stakeholders recommend be conducted
5.      A report titled 'Report on Public Suggestions on Further Studies
of WHOIS' and dated 25 February 2008 summarized the study suggestions
and comments received during the public comment period

Resolve to form a group of volunteers to:

1.      Review and discuss the 'Report on Public Suggestions on Further
Studies of WHOIS'

2.      Develop a proposed list of recommended studies for which ICANN
staff will be asked to provide cost estimates to the Council

3.      Deliver the list of recommendations with supporting rationale
not later than 24 April 2008.

I welcome a second of the motion as well as discussion and amendments
between now and our meeting.  Also, assuming support for the motion, I
encourage Councilors to identify volunteers for the group prior to the
meeting if possible.
