[Internal-cg] Redraft of RFP

Actually Paul, while it would be nice to release something before 6 September, I don't see it as critical that we do. It would be better to make the RFP something that we discuss directly at our next f2f. The reason earlier release is not so significant is that the names communities have not even chartered their Cross Community Working Group. There is no way that the CCWG would be in a position to respond to an RFP in the month of August anyway. So I would rather spend more time on the RFP and get it right. 

(There is also, of course, a chance that spending more time on it will make it more muddled, as seems to have happened to our co-chairs discussion, but I will work hard to fend off clutter and muddle and other barnacles that might accrete on it as we discuss it more).

Dear Mr Arasteh

I believe we were aiming to release a CFP (in some form) by the end of July; and certainly it will introduce a long delay if we wait until 6 September.

I do agree that this process needs more work, and sorry not to have been able to advance it further myself;  but I also think it is important to release something much sooner than 6 September.

My suggestion would be to revise the current document, and get it into a form which is suitable for release as a draft.  This would serve both to provide guidance, and to solicit feedback from the communities.  If released in the next week or two, we could receive that feedback in time for our September meeting.
