[council] RE: [CCWG-ACCT] Timeline and next steps (updated)

Thank you for that feedback, Paul.

Susan and I am still waiting on further guidance from BC members before we can 
indicate their views.

Best regards, Philip

The IPC would like to join the chorus of folks who are pointing out the 
unrealistic timeframe of this usually short comment period and a GNSO call on 
the subject which occurs before the comment period closes.  Since the IPC and 
its member organizations are composed primarily of volunteers, the volume of 
the latest proposal is significant, and the issues are complex, we doubt we 
will have our comment in before the end of the rushed comment period.  We also 
do not think that the GNSO Council will likely be in a position to opine on the 
proposal, other than perhaps to compile anecdotal data about how the community 
is reacting to the latest draft.

I personally believe that we should push ICANN for more time for a realistic 
comment period in line with the magnitude of this proposal.  For example, the 
New gTLD Program Implementation Review Draft Report was given 76 days and this 
seems at least  - or a whole lot more! - important than that.  The Council 
should also be given time to digest those comments prior to opining.  I don't 
think that ICANN is doing any favors by compressing these timeframes, 
especially during the holidays.

We will, of course, all work as hard and as fast as we can, but the idea of 
having anything close to final by our December Council call just isn't

Hi Paul,

As I understand it, the Council is expected to indicate by the close of the 
public comment period whether there any major concerns that could potentially 
affect the chances of approval of the Final Proposal or if there aren't any, 
whether it is likely that the Council would be able to support the proposal as 
it stands. The actual consideration of the Final Proposal for approval would 
not happen until January after the CCWG has confirmed the Final Proposal 
following review of the public comments and input received from the Chartering 
Organizations. I've copied in Thomas so he can correct me if I am wrong.

Best regards,

Hi Marika,

Just so that I am clear and can take back an accurate message to my 
stakeholders, the proposed schedule would have the GNSO Coucil give its up or 
down on the CCWG-Accountability proposal 3 days after the end of public 
comment, with that 3 day period ending on Christmas Eve.  Do I have this right?
