>> Last week, we talked about the information that we need to collect in a table.  I put together a template for the table, and asked the vice chairs to review it.  Attached is the resulting structure for the table.  At this point, I invite the whole review team to review it.  Is there anything that we need to capture that this does not capture?

On the leadership call earlier today, we observed that the reason for our questions about the SSR1 recommendations is because it is not necessarily easy to determine what was done to implement the recommendations, and in some cases, the ICANN staff that did the implementation have moved on.  Negar pointed out that ICANN is putting together a way to better track the resolution of review team recommendations going forward.  The is good, and it will help future review teams, but it will not help us.
