Item 1 on the agenda for Monday's call as circulated by Glen is 1. Final
questionnaire with covering letter
I assume this refers to the questionnaires to be sent to (1) registrars and
(2) all constituencies.
I think we can piece together the questionnaire text from previous postings.
But has a draft cover letter (or letters) been circulated? If so, I seem to
have missed it, could it be re-circulated? Thanks.

I will definitely relate to the council that the sentiment of the task force
is that we should not request constituency statements until the data
gathering is complete. Fortunately, I think that both of the other Whois
task forces have had conversations along these lines in recent days as well.

With respect for the Council and coordination, I will echo the concerns
raised by Marilyn, Tom and Steve. I agree that we only want to go to our
constituencies once -- and that our prior unanimous agreement to go After
the data was collected, compiled and placed into an Interim Report was a
good decision. Our TF has a good amount of data gathering to conduct -- at
the instruction of the Council through our DOW -- so we have a job to do.
With respect to Barbara, I don't fully understand why small projects are
holding up data collection by weeks now. It's hardly seems fair to the
Council, the Constituencies, or the public not to proceed forward in a
timely manner. The questions are done -- why aren't they out?
Tom's revised schedule is realistic. It is fair to our TF members, the
Constituencies, the public -- and the Council which assigned us some very
important tasks. I hope you will take it to the Council; I hope they will

As you can see, this schedule is rather more aggressive than the one
that Thomas has circulated. There is actually quite a bit of inertia
behind the schedule above, so it may make sense to try to comply with
the above schedule, if we believe it to be practical. (I'll add the
caveat that it's fairly dependent on staff support.)
