[gnso-improvem-impl-sc] Suspension or Termination of a PDP

A couple of comments:
* The first sentence of the last paragraph says 'specifying the reasons for
the action taken', but it is not the WG that can take the action to suspend
or terminate, but the Council. Should it read 'specifying the reasons for
recommending termination or suspension'?
* I'm still concerned by the bureaucracy this builds into the PDP. One of
the main objectives of the last review was to build in more flexibility. The
current language hardly leaves any room for the GNSO Council to exercise
flexibility (in certain cases there may not be a need or demand for a formal
report or public comment forum). A possible alternative could be to require
the development of a formal termination / suspension report at the request
of any GNSO SG/C or SO/ AC? This would allow for more flexibility while at
the same time giving any party with an interest in the PDP a means to
request a formal report on the reasons for termination or suspension.
Best regards,

Dear All:

I have attached the latest revisions to the Termination or Suspension of a
PDP.  During our last call, we agreed to add two minor changes:

1.  I have added the term Suspension to the heading as suggested by
Wolf-Ulrich; and

2.  I have added language to the first sentence to clarify that a report on
termination is only require if the termination occurs BEFORE the issuance of
a final report.

With these two minor changes, I think this language is in good shape for

Sorry for the delay in getting this circulated.
