>> Dear All,
>> Per the new GNSO Policy Development Process, the GNSO Council needs to

>> informed decision. As the new PDP does not prescribe how such a 
>> Recommendations Report should be structured, we would also like to take this 
>> opportunity to ask your input on the elements the Recommendations Report 
>> should contain so this can be turned into a template which can be used for 
>> future Recommendations Reports. For your information, you will find the

>> ===================
>> From the PDP Manual
>> 13. Preparation of the Board Report
>> If the PDP Recommendations contained in the Final Report are approved by the 
>> GNSO Council, the GNSO Council may designate a person or group responsible 
>> for drafting a Recommendations Report to the Board. If feasible, the 
>> Recommendations Report to the Board should be submitted to the Board in time 
>> for consideration at the next GNSO Council meeting following adoption of the 
>> Final Report. Staff should inform the GNSO Council from time to time of the 
>> format requested by the Board. These GNSO Council Reports supplement any 
>> Staff Reports that may highlight any legal, implementability, financial, and 
>> other operational concerns related to the PDP recommendations contained in 
>> the Final Report. In order to enhance ICANN’s accountability and 
>> transparency, Staff is encouraged to publish its Staff Reports with minimal 
>> redactions wherever possible, without jeopardizing information that may be 
>> protected under attorney/client or other legal privileges.
