Good idea.

> [MI]: As mentioned in Singapore I would be cautious not to set an aggressive timeline and miss or change the deadline again; and would be equally cautious not to set a relaxed timeline that may be misinterpreted as lack of commitment .. I think we need to accurately calculate the necessary time which I believe is a bit difficult with so many critical factors being unclear .. That said is there an urgency for us go live with a new timeline now .. Can't we just:
> -          Add a disclaimer on the original timeline, stating that this was based on receiving the 3 proposals at the same time, and around Jan 15th , 2015 and will be updated in due course as things become clearer
> -          Thank the protocol parameters community and numbers community for the submitted proposals and reiterate ICG's commitment to proceed with steps that can be done independently with both proposals
> -          Thank the names community for the dedication and hard work solving more complex issues, and re-iterate ICG's commitment to closely monitor the process and bring to their attention anything that may help spare us post-submission ICG-CWG iterations ..

I would like to bring this discussion over to the thread about the timeline - will respond there.

> [MI]: I agree with Wolf-Ulrich's suggestion to "look again to the IETF and RIR proposals from the implementation point of view which Larry Strickling raised in Singapore."
> (5) Next Face-to-Face Meeting in Buenos Aires
> [MI]: If time allows, I suggest adding this as an agenda item to agree whether the meeting will be before or after the ICANN week .. I recall this was discussed in Singapore but not concluded .. If no further discussion is needed maybe a Doodle poll will serve the purpose .. and if time doesn't allow we can definitely discuss online .. The reason I brought this up is that the hotels are already announced and it will be good to know early on the dates of any additional days ..
> As I will not be on the call, I'll share my opinion here .. If I recall correctly, we've met 'after' in Istanbul (and LA?) and 'before' in Singapore .. I think meeting before was useful in aligning views, making sure everyone is on the same page, agreeing on messages that need to be conveyed, etc … .. Having said that, and if ICG members' flights allow, a couple of hours to wrap up, at the end, after the public forum, may also be useful ..

This item has been added to the end of the agenda.
