[council] WHOIS TF 1: Question to GNSO Council regarding timelines

I support the proposal to extend the timeline for the PDP of WHOIS TF1 but the steps on the described TF1 timetable do not agree with the PDP. As someone involved in the drafting of the PDP text our understanding was that its timelines were guidelines that may need to be adapted by intelligent users. But its steps should be followed.
It is worth pointing out that the PDP article 7e tells us that the TF has 50 days (40+5+5)  to get a report out for public comment. There is then 20+10 = 30 days to get a final report to Council. The total time = 80 days. 
(It would be useful if the GNSO secretariat were to keep a record of each ACTUAL timeline of all PDPs, so that we can include the PDP deadlines in the GNSO review later this year. If we then need to change the deadlines, we can do so).
