Dear Seun, All,

Happy New Year as well !

Your request for 48 hrs notice is quite reasonable indeed. Due to the end of 
year break, we won’t meet this for Tuesday’s meeting. You can expect an 
agenda by noon UTC on Monday, with the associated documents for Tuesday’s 
meeting (19 UTC). Topics planned for further meetings will be part of our 
discussions, so that agendas for the other meetings can be anticipated.

As usual, no decision will be made in a single meeting,

Thanks for your constructive suggestions.

Dear Co-Chairs,

I just like to flag that it will be good to have the comments summary not 
later than 48hrs to any of the meeting slots on the schedule. Considering we 
are already less than 72hrs to the first meeting, I'd suggest that we have 
the agenda for that very first meeting provided (with review of comments out 
of it) as soon as possible. Unless ofcourse the summary comes in sooner than 

It's important to have an idea of what the agenda looks like for necessary 
planning. If there are other items to discuss aside from "review of 
comments" then let's have those early enough while comments review can be 
tentatively fixed for later.

Happy new year!

Dear Chris, All,

I fully concur that an overarching agenda is a short term need, and needs a 
ccwg discussion. Our assumption is that this will be more relevant to 
discuss this once we have a summary of comments. Staff is working on it 
right now, and as soon as it is available, we will discuss this overarching

Hi Mathieu,

Thanks for this. Do you have a proposed topic agenda yet. I won’t be able to 
make all the calls (and I expect others will be in the same boat) so it 
would helpful to have an overarching agenda for the calls as soon as 
possible. Apologies if this has been sent already and I have missed it.

Dear Kavouss, Dear Paul, All,

Some of you have raised concerns about the work plan and the decision to
schedule two calls a week, announced in my 24th December email.

Participants to our meeting #73 will remember that this issue was
discussed during that call
(https://community.icann.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=56986612). Key
take away was the need for plenary discussions rather than multiplying

While we certainly recognize the different views expressed about the
timeline for delivering our final report, we are also trying to organize
our calls in a manner that enables inclusive and informed debate about the
comments received. 24 hours of calls in January "only" represent two hours
of discussions per recommendation (leaving aside other types of issues
that we dedicate time on during our calls). Two hours to fully understand
concerns and find a way forward that is acceptable to all.

We hope that, by using a topic based agenda and providing a thorough
analysis of the comments received ahead of the call, we can make the best
use of everyone's time during these calls, so that they can remain driven
by the willingness to understand each of the concerns in good faith and
find common ground, as we have demonstrated in the past that our group can

If needed and desired within the group, we might have to rely on intensive
days (possibly on a week end) as some of you suggested, but we are aware
of the challenges of such an approach and would like to avoid that as much
as possible.

As a follow up to the discussion that took place during our meeting #73,
we will put these proposals for discussion during our next meeting, on
January 5th, and look forward to your further contributions and

Leon, Thomas & Mathieu
