[council] GNSO Review TOR + Background Information

I'm pleased to see the suggestion for a standard approach to the documents,
which should be used by all staff. I like the numbering of paragraphs and
bullets. It is a very helpful approach that is used in many of the
international for a I work in and is so helpful as a tool. Numbering lines
on a page don't work as well, when you then do edits and have different
versions. So I'd like to see a standard implemented and then we as
Councilors should adhere to that approach as well in our various TF work,


I'll have substantive comments by CoB US on Friday. :0) Sorry, can't meet a
CoB Europe schedule. 

I'm supportive of Grant's other comments below.


Regards, Marilyn

Liz et al

Attached is a marked up version of your TOR

Besides the specific comments marked up I provide the following additional


1 It would be desirable if all GNSO staff reports/papers etc conformed to an
agreed standard layout with a minimum set of information (which I have
provided here as mark ups)

2 please ensure all paragraphs and bullets are numbered

3. Given that ICANN is an international body, I recommend that dates be
provided in full to avoid confusion. IE 1 September 2005, not 1/9/05 or
9/1/05. Dates of documents (unless it is explicitly noted as the "print"
date) should not use the MS Word "insert date option", but rather be typed
in. This avoids the original date of the document changing.

4 I personally don't think the moving of the questions/analysis to footers
works. My preference is that they be moved to an annex


I look forward advancing the development of the TOR on the call.

Thank you to everyone who has provided comments so far.  Please find
attached two documents.  As per input from the conference call last week, I
have separated out the background information and devised another document
which looks more like a more formal TOR.


Could I ask you to review it - the Chair has asked for comments to be in by
Friday 2 Sept Brussels COB.   He will then forward an updated document to
the Board for 8 Sept once any additional comments are taken into account. 


On the current timeframe, this means that the Board will not receive the
document seven days prior to any meeting.


Any questions, come back to me.


Kind regards.
