As we discussed on Monday's call, here is the schedule as we currently envision it:
Initially convened 2 Dec.
Interim report on primary data and collection efforts by 15 Jan
Data gathering public comment to commence in early January
Public comment to end by 25 Jan
Data compiled from various sources by 2 Feb
Constituency statements due 23 Feb
Preliminary report prepared post-Rome ICANN meeting
Public comment period (20 days)
Preparation of Final report (including any public comment of note) (10 days)
Council consideration of Final report (10 days)
Preparation of Board report (5 days)
We need to decide on a date for the preliminary report. The PDP says within 10 days of constituency statements. That's obviously not practical. I suggest March 26, which is three weeks after the conclusion of the Rome meeting and should allow us time to create initial policy recommendations.
