Decision 4: That the GNSO Council forms a GNSO working group of
volunteers, conversant with the IDN issues raised in the IDN issues report.
The purpose of the working group would be to:

(1) review the Issues Report,

(2) prioritise the policy issues in the Issues Report for further work,

(3) develop the terms of reference for an initial policy development
process in the area of IDNs within the GNSO,

(4) propose ways of interacting with ICANN groups such as the
President's Advisory Committee on IDNs, the GAC, ALAC, SSAC and other
related groups in ICANN, and

(5) select three representatives to interact with the three ccNSO
representatives to form a separate joint GNSO/ccNSO working group to:

(5.1) agree on the priority issues and determine whether to examine the
issues as a single "joint" PDP, or as two separate PDPs

(5.2) provide a report to the GNSO and ccNSO Councils with
recommendations for terms of reference of one or more PDPs, and the
mechanisms for coordination with other parts of ICANN
The group would aim to have recommendations completed by the end of July
