RE: [council] Motion and document deadlines added to GNSO calendar

Hi Tim,

The GNSO Council meets approximately every 3 weeks.   If a 14 day rule is 
applied, motions would need to be brought during the one week period after the 
last GNSO Council meeting.    Would that leave enough time for  dialogue 
between meetings among councilors and allow for sufficient consultations with 
their respective SG/C's?

This is basically 13-14 days. Why not just make it 14 days prior to a meeting. 
Then we don't have to worry about changes in the way ICANN schedules its 
meetings, and it's simpler to understand.

Would a motion to change that be sufficient, or is more needed?
