[ccwg-internet-governance] CCWG-IG call of Friday, April 29

I think there is perhaps a need for the CCWG-IG to provide further education about what we do. We do not do 'gTLD policy'. :-) NOR ccTLD policy, nor numbering policy. Instead, the CCWG-IG focuses on the broader IG ecosystem issues and events, and presence that ICANN has, and that members of the ICANN Community have that affect ICANN as a whole. 
I think a written report is best, and should go to all chartering SO/ACs, and we should not expect the gTLD policy Council of the GNSO to be too overburdened about the CCWG-IG. that would be unfair to the other Chartering organizations and overly burden the GNSO gTLD policy Council.

maybe adding here, that we made a report to GNSO council in Marrakech during the GNSO-ccNSO joint meeting.regarding the updates, depends what the kind of reports they would like: written report or 10 to 15min update during a GNSO council call.

In my opinion, that's something that each chair of the CCWG IG should

work out with their own Chartering Organisation. I do agree that it

would be helpful if the Co-Chairs had a "song sheet" - ie. just a

summary of the CCWG IG activities that they could share with each other,

so they all say similar things to their Chartering Organisation.

That could take the form of a gathering of the monthly reports with an

introduction plus some proposals for the next work period. But perhaps

we need to think about how extensive a progress paper should be. I am

concerned about the workload on the co-chairs if they were to

single-handedly put pen to paper - especially since there are probably

no staff resources to help with drafting such an update. (Nigel, am I

Yes that's absolutely the case and as far as I know in my community

(ALAC) the matter was brought to light and there was no objection to the

CCWG IG continuing.

Since the forthcoming call is an organisational call and barring any

objection from Co-Chairs, I suggest we add the topic to the agenda.
