Ok, I made a couple of edits to the proposed landing page text to
accommodate suggestions received. I slightly softened the language around
community comments being our preferred mechanism and added a new final
paragraph to address Paul’s and Mohamed’s points. We can keep tweaking
this, but I’d like for ICANN to start getting it up on a web page in the
meantime. New text:


ICG Charter Open for Public Comments

On July 18, the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG)
produced a draft charter <link> that defines its own tasks. The charter is
open for public comment until August XX, 2014 at 20:00 UTC. <bold>It is
the strong preference of the ICG that comments about the charter from the
public be submitted via existing IANA-related community processes, and not
through the link provided below.</bold> If you need assistance finding
those processes or contacting the appropriate ICG participant, please
contact <secretariat-email>. If you are not able to provide comments
through a relevant community or ICG participant, a mechanism for
submitting comments via an email alias is linked below.

Please be aware that the ICG views defining the broad outlines of its
charter as important, but it views finalizing the charter and moving on to
the real work of the transition planning to be of equal importance. As a
result not all comments submitted concerning the charter will necessarily
be incorporated.

Public comments are considered to be for the public record, and for the
information and consideration of all participants in this process, not
just for the ICG. Everyone is encouraged to review any public comments
that may be submitted via the process below.

Deadline: August XX, 2014 at 20:00 UTC
