> This wording inappropriately implies there should be a public comment period.  The SSAC Operating Procedures is an internal document that captures the processes in effect.  It is not a policy document.  Publication is done for transparency and comments, if any, will likely be considered, but it was never intended nor would it be appropriate to suggest there is a need for community feedback or approval.

In general, I thought that all SO/AC Operating Procedures go through at least a vetting by the Board and that is preceded by a public comment.  I certainly thought this was the case for GNSO Operating Principles.  Not sure if this was the case for the ALAC change that just went through, but I thought it was. I don't understand why this would not be the case for SSAC as well.

Or should we take this to mean that no SO/AC needs to go through public comment before changing it Operating procedures?
