Re: [council] Draft message to the Board
Regarding timing of the report versions:
A message pointing to the first official copy of the report from the
WG on the Wiki went to the Chairs of the ALAC and GNSO sent by Rafik
at 23:51 UTC on Saturday, May 7.
A copy in PDF format went to the two Chairs, sent by Carlton at 02:01
UTC on Sun May 8 and was then forwarded to Council.
Note that Rafik and Carlton are the Co-chairs of the WG.
The ALAC report to the Board went to the Chair of the GNSO, sent by
the Chair of the ALAC at 08:57 on Tuesday, May 10 and was then
forwarded to Council (that presumes I read my time zones correctly.

earlier versions of the report since they either participated in the
WG or watched its progress. The same can be said of the GNSO and the
If I got any of the time-zone conversions wrong, please let me know.

only got it on May 9. That in itself is a problem, as it begs the
question as to why one chartering entity got the report before the
other did. As Jeff stated, this looks a lot like the situation we've
just had with the ccNSO and the JIG. So trying to learn from our
mistakes here, I had not wanted to get into that with our Board
statement, but if you think we should, we can...
