Hi Stephanie and everyone,

The deadline was set to try to identify for the WG as many issues possibly
meriting further WG consideration as we can. This will help the co-chairs
plan the agendas for the coming weeks, including looking ahead to the Dublin
meeting, and see how well we are able to keep to the Work Plan. As noted by
Steve on the last call, the current Work Plan timeline has actually be
extended since the WG issued its Initial Report in early May ­ once to allow
for an extended public comment period as requested by some WG members, and
then again subsequently in view of the number of comments that came in.

While we are very cognizant of the amount of work it will take to complete a
review of the comments, do note that our WG is operating under the
³external² constraint that is the January 2017 expiration date of the
current interim P/P specification in the RAA. Note also that even in the
best case scenario under our current Work Plan, if the WG completes its
Final Report in time for the GNSO Council¹s November meeting, the following
still has to happen:
* Council votes to adopt the WG¹s consensus recommendations;
* Recommendations Report prepared for Council approval;
* Report sent to the ICANN Board and publication of recommended actions by
ICANN Board (i.e. adoption of the policy) published for public comment;
* Review and vote by the ICANN Board;
* Formation of an Implementation Review Team and development of an
Implementation Plan
* Finalization of operational details and announcement of launch date of
accreditation program ­ note that GDD and the contracted parties aim for
this to be six months prior to the actual effective date.
As you can see from the above, the current timeline already leaves very
little time to take the policy from adoption to implementation, and any
further extension brings both the WG and the eventual IRT up even closer
against the January 2017 deadline. Given the momentum that the Sub Teams
seem to be developing on the tricky open questions, the idea was that the
rest of the WG could concurrently begin to close on final recommendations
for the preliminary recommendations.

Perhaps it will also help to note that what is required at this stage is for
the WG to consider what (if anything) needs to be changed, deleted, or added
to in terms of the preliminary recommendations. The Work Plan envisages
about 2-3 weeks following the Sub Teams¹ final reports for further WG
discussion of the issues identified now for that purpose, so that by Dublin
we will be able to focus on finalizing any remaining open or contentious

I¹m of course not saying that the Work Plan cannot be changed if the
co-chairs and WG members believe that to be the most appropriate thing to
do, but I hope that this email setting out the context for our work is
helpful in some way.
