I think this is a good idea as a way to start and fits patterns that
have proven successful in taking the first steps in recent efforts.
I do not want to wipe the weekend end schedule for this, however, as
we have a published agenda for the weekend and have people committed
to those tasks who are planing to come to Seoul in time or those
This does not minimize the importance of starting on the Board letter
on Specific Trademark Issues (STI) and DAGv3 and that is why I think
the suggestion about forming a DT a good idea. Because of the press
of time, we cannot wait for a meeting to do this. So I am suggesting
we start now.
I propose forming a DT composed of participants each SG and the active
Liaison groups who are willing to focus their time next week (perhaps
even finding time for a teleconference) and on the weekend to come up
with a plan and start the work for the council to discuss/accept at
the Wednesday open meeting and at the Thursday meeting.
Unless there is strong objection from the members of the council, I
ask each SG to name 2-3 members and the active ACSO liaison groups to
name 1 representative each for the STI-DT and ask Glen (or some
member of staff who is not traveling at the moment) to set up a
mailing list, with open archive, for that team immediately. I think
it is a good suggestion for those SGs that have members who were on
the IRT as either members or observers to consider including them
among the 2-3 volunteers. I think the SGs should find people in the
SG, not necessarily council members to populate these meeting - and
recommend that the people doing this find alternatives to replace (at
least temporarily) them in other other ongoing ICANN tasks (except of
course for council membership).
We do have some unused meting room space on Saturday (11am on), so I
suggest we schedule this group consider an open meeting during this
The topic has already been scheduled for the Wednesday open meeting (https://st.icann.org/gnso-council/index.cgi?agenda_28_oct_2009
), and has already been spoken of as the main topic for the Thursday
