[CCWG-ACCT] Tossing the Charter out of the Windhow (was Re: Frozen Draft Report_

Dear Co-Chairs Leon and Mathieu,

Indeed when reading this in perspective, your colleague previously
stated that the Charter does not foresee minority statements and now
your colleague states that the Charter does not apply (probably he
has read the Charter now, where it CLEARLY states that each position
must be declared Full Consensus or Consensus, and for each report
where there is less than Full Consensus, minority viewpoints must be
included, if any) defies comprehension.



To state that the Consensus Level has not been established, is
peculiar, since Full Consensus is defined in the Charter, and we do
NOT have it.

One can not present an Interim Report for Public Comment without
stating the Consensus Level.

I renew my objection and the chair and vice-chairs of the ccNSO
Council read in copy, because if (in the eyes of a Co-Chair) the
Charter does not apply, ccNSO as chartering organization needs to

Never mind that it will cast reflection on the Interim Report and
the CCWG Accountability.

Nor the motivation.

Not that I did not predict something like this right from the start,
by the way.


please forward to the Council List, as I can not post to it.

greetings, el
