pls priovide me a brief on comments you have received outside the ICG and outside constituency of ICANN. i.e from the community

I was thinking of the whole thread at [1]. I’m sure those who are actually in favor of a public comment process (Mohamed?) could provide additional details about the people they expect to see comments from.

Yes, Kavouss, the charter was publicized among the Noncommercial Stakeholders Group as soon as the draft was posted back in mid-July. https://listserv.syr.edu/scripts/wa.exe?A2=ind1407&L=NCSG-DISCUSS&F=&S=&P=137691

We have general approval expressed in our conference calls and no objections on the list.

while I am sympathetic to your concerns,  we need to recall that there was a significant body of opinion within the ICG that we didn’t need a formal comment period at all.
The charter is not what we are supposed to be working on, it is what enables and scopes our work. So the sooner we get it into place, the better – and then we can argue about the really important things!
