I agree, too.
Since we’ve planned so far a separate session with Ray o the weekend, we could use this slot for an internal reflection of the preceding discussion with the board on the matter.

Best regards

I support this.  Though I'm not sure now is the time for GNSO review, I would be interested in hearing Ray's views.  Thanks for arranging, Jonathan.

  I have spoken with Ray Plzak on the GNSO Review.  Ray chairs the ICANN Board Structural Improvements Committee i.e. the committee responsible for working on ICANN Board commissioned organisational reviews.
  The detail of the GNSO Review is still work in progress as far as the SIC is concerned and it fits into a broader perspective on the shape and structure of related review work in future.
  In this context, Ray shared a concept paper with the ATRT2 and that is publicly available here:
  As part of our interaction with the ICANN board on Sunday November 17th, Ray has offered to update the Council on latest thinking and development so that is something I suggest we take advantage of.
  He is also potentially available to meet with a smaller (Review focussed) group in Buenos Aires.
  In any event, there is nothing to stop us getting on with reviewing our own work on policy development since the last GNSO review.  We could look into various factors such as time taken, whether or not the policy achieved what was intended and whether or not there were any unintended consequences.  From what I can see, this could be useful as part of our own work to improve and feed into the Board commissioned organisational review of the GNSO.
  We can discuss this further during the appropriate weekend session in Buenos Aires.
