Perhaps we can organize a 20-30 minute meeting towards the end of a day?  We
could even meet in the lobby of the hotel, for example.  It needn't be a
serious formal meeting, in my view.


Kind regards,

Thanks Ron.

What do others think about an F2F meeting in CR? This seems to be relatively
difficult to manage since we're already close to the CR meeting. The only
timeslot I could see would be on Saturday morning before 10:00 a.m. But this
should be confirmed by Glen - in case more people opt for this.


Kind regards

Thanks for bringing some focus to the SCI, Wolf-Ulrich.  I support the idea
of sending out a reminder to let everyone know that the SCI exists to
support fine tuning of processes.  I also support a f-2-f meeting in Costa
Rica to discuss the other items you note below.


Kind regards,

Dear SCI members,


after a phase of silent months it's now the right moment to put some items
to the table which need input and recommendations from this committee.


1.    Rules of procedure

The GNSO council had a successful first run trial re a consent agenda which
should be put in a formal process. One rugh suggestion for this is as

1. The Chair or meeting leader calls for any opposition to said item being
in the consent agenda. If any opposition is voiced, then that item is
dropped from the consent agenda (and can be re-introduced at any time in the
main agenda).

2. If no opposition is voiced to the item being on the consent agenda, the
Chair or meeting leader calls for any opposition to the item itself. If any
opposition is voiced, then no action is taken (and the item can be
re-introduced at any time in the main agenda).

3. If no opposition, the consent agenda item is deemed approved by theGNSO

Obviously we need to discuss this in more detail, e.g. the goal of a consent
agenda, which items could be included to a consent agenda and which should
definitely be excluded e.a. It seems to make sense to include the text -
once recommended - into chapter 3.0 of the rules "GNSO Council Meetings".

2.    As discussed in Dakar, it might be worth sending out a reminder to the
GNSO Council and SG/C leaders regarding the mandate of the SCI and the
opportunity that exists to request review of GNSO Improvement related items.
To this end, thanks to Marika the attached draft letter has been prepared
for your consideration. Please feel free to comment.

3.    Furthermore, in order to obtain feedback from WGs/DT on their
experience with the GNSO Working Group Guidelines - as it is intended in the
SCI charter - , it might be useful to develop a short survey which could
facilitate data gathering and input. In order to kick off the discussion
here are some bullet points:

*  The objective of the survey would be to determine whether there are any
issues that were encountered by WG/Dts with the GNSO Working Group
Guidelines, and/or identify areas for improvement 

*  If deemed effective, such a survey could become a standard part of the
self-evaluation process of WGs and provide the SCI with regular input on the
status of the GNSO Working Group Guidelines 


Ideas for items to be included in the survey are welcome!



I appreciate very much your response and hope to see most of you in Costa

Kind regards

Wolf-Ulrich Knoben
