[Internal-cg] Charter commenting

I had sent this in the email about updated deadlines, but did not receive
any feedback about it:

== Charter ==
Originally I think we were hoping to have received all charter comments
roughly by Aug 1. Mohamed has made a proposal that we setup an explicit
mechanism to solicit community feedback on the charter and announce a
clear deadline for comments. I have not seen anyone oppose this proposal.
So my suggestion is that I work with the secretariat to get an email alias
(not a mailing list) up and running where community members can send
comments if they are not able to convey them via an ICG member (which I
still think is the preferred approach in general for charter comments).
Comments sent to this alias would be directly reflected on a web page that
we can setup. Assuming we can get this working by July 31, I suggest that
we announce an Aug 8 deadline for charter comments. This is not a lengthy
period of time but I think we had a general sense that it’s most important
to get the broad outlines of the charter right rather than spending weeks
on the details, so hopefully this will be sufficient.

Alice has suggested that we could use a forum for this purpose, similar to
the ones listed here: <http://forum.icann.org/lists/>. We could publish an
announcement page that says that we are accepting public comments on the
ICG charter, what the deadline is, a link to the charter, a link to the
email alias to be used for comment submission, and a link to the forum
page where comments will appear.

Should we do this?

How long of a comment period should we have? (I would say 7-10 days max,
assuming we’re interested in major substantive comments and not lots of
detailed nits.)

Should we give any guidance about what kind of feedback we’re looking for?
