That is not what I concluded but that would be a good point to clarify.

Hi Chuck,

But isn't this comment forum about the entire PDP?  While some of the issues apply, others don't and the general emphasis is wrong.

Two comments come p:

- are you advocating that we not send the appeal to the Board?
- are you proposing that the council, as a group, send a comment on the ccNSO PDP?  If so, perhaps the same group that wrote the proposed appeal to the board could revise it into a form that is appropriate for this call for comments.
