AW: [council] Draft Letter from GNSO to Board re WHOIS RT Recommendations

- add the matrix including commentzs
- use the "SG" abbreviation in the right context only (Stakeholder Group)
- leve the text just with Stakeholder Groups / Constituencies (no numbers!)

Also I think the breakdown of a small group of 5 people in percentages is questionnable to reflect community views.

In total I think the matrix is selfdescribing where we are, and the board should be marure enough to interprete it.

Best regards

+1 on Alan's remarks, particularly the first one.  I think the explanatory notes would be helpful.

Brian, several comments:

- does this imply that you will not be sending any of the detailed breakdowns by SG/Const, including the explanatory notes that

- the use of the term SG is confusing, as it normally stands for Stakeholder Group in the GNSO context.

- Ignoring the possibly confusing abbreviation, giving percentages of the SG without any information about its constitution is not very informative.

- the reference to the GNSO's 6 constituencies is unclear, as the GNSO has (I think!) five constituencies in two Stakeholder Groups, and two Stakeholder Groups without constituencies.

Dear Councilors,

As was discussed in Saturday's session with regard to the WHOIS RT work, attached please find a draft letter to the ICANN Board detailing our various constituencies' recommendations as to whether a PDP would be required for certain WHOIS enhancements.

We appreciate your prompt attention to this matter and look forward to hearing your views so that we may move forward as soon as possible with providing our communication to the Board.  Thank you.

Best regards,


Brian J. Winterfeldt
