Brian & Margie,
Thank-you both for the efforts to bring this to the point you have now
got it to.
Fellow Councillors, please note the following:
1.       We now have a summary of our respective positions as well as an
appropriate covering letter
2.       The board is scheduled to meet to discuss this issue in
approximately 48 hours (8th November)
Therefore, I believe that we should send this letter to the board
including an apology for the fact that it arrives immediately before
their meeting.
My view is that sending our response late (as we will have to do) is
better than not sending it all for two reasons:
A.      We have done a lot of work on this
B.      It does not reflect well on us as a Council to not send a
Please can I have your support (or opposition if you feel that) for
sending this letter tomorrow.  
In order to do so, I need your support (or not) by no later than 05h00
UTC on Wed 7th November.

Dear all:
I would like to thank Margie for her hard work collecting data and
assembling the attached chart on the recommendations from the WHOIS
Review Team Final Report.  We owe an apology to the Board for taking
longer on this endeavor than was originally anticipated.
Attached for the consideration and approval of the entire Council please
our draft letter to the Board.  It is composed of a brief introductory
letter, or executive summary, and a chart outlining each constituency
and stakeholder position on whether there is agreement with each
specific WHOIS Review Team Final Report recommendation and whether a
Policy Development Process is required.  We have attached a .DOC version
of the letter and chart to facilitate any final additions or amendments.

We look forward to expeditious consideration and approval by the
Council, as well as delivery to the Board of Directors.
Thank you,
Brian J. Winterfeldt

Dear All,
Please find attached final summary chart, clean and redlined, to reflect
all of the input received to date.  Please note that the chart is
missing any input from Registrars or the NCSG regarding whether they
agree/disagree with each of the WHOIS RT recommendations.
All the best,

Subject: RE: Updated WHOIS RT FInal Report Recommendations- REMINDER FOR

Dear All,
I just wanted to send a reminder on this, since I have only received
comments from the IPC.
Please let me know by COB today whether your SG/C has any additional
comments to the chart.
All the best,

Subject: Updated WHOIS RT FInal Report Recommendations

Dear All,
As discussed last week,  I updated the draft WHOIS RT summary chart to
include the clarifications requested by the ISP Constituency, and to
include a column clarifying whether there was agreement with the
substance of each recommendation, based upon the comments submitted in
the Public Comment Forum (PCF) for the WHOIS Review Team Final Report.  

In reviewing the comments filed in the PCF, I did not locate submissions
from each constituency/SG, making it difficult to complete the chart.  
Notably missing were comments from Registrars, NCSG, or the IPC on the
Final Report (although in some cases there were submissions on the draft
report).   In addition, from the comments actually submitted,  it was
not clear whether the commentators agreed/disagreed with the
recommendation itself, since many of the comments appeared to address
aspects of the recommendations, as opposed to evaluating the
recommendation holistically.
As a result,  it is important that each constituency/stakeholder group
review the information contained in the attached chart, and indicate
whether they agree/disagree with each of the recommendations.      
Please provide this information by COB Monday, October 29, 2012, so that
the chart can be finalized in advance of the Board’s consideration of
the WHOIS RT Final Report Recommendations.
All the best,
Margie Milam
Senior Policy Counselor
