ALAC and At-large members of GNSO PDPs are given exactly the same rights during the working group and the final determination of consensus as members of the WG affiliated with the GNSO…
Im not sure of any differentiation in the current working methods of GNSO PDPs. And for the record and for Eric’s info GAC members in particular the PSWG members are also active in a similar manner.
But I agree with Seun here is not the place for this discussion given the current pressing matter we have before us.

FWIW I don't know what gives you that impression but yes no doubt about the activeness of ALAC (AtLarge) but I think adding "equal footing" to it may be too optimistic.
That said, I don't think this is where to resolve that (if there is anything to resolve)

I just want to reach to this and note that ALAC and At-Large members are very active in the GNSO policy development processes on equal footing with GNSO members. SO unless I am missing something I don’t think that this is reflective of the current realities for the GNSO policy processes.
