Dear Councilors,

You may recall that one aspect of the multiple efforts now underway for the
GNSO's PDP Improvements project is the review, revamp and use of
communication, informational and other tools for GNSO ³on boarding²
purposes. Besides projects such as the GNSO Learn module program (which Lars
briefed you about in Buenos Aires) and the revamped GNSO ³one stop shop²
policy documents webpage, among other ongoing efforts, staff was requested
to develop a set of uniform definitions and descriptions for the most
commonly used GNSO policy making structures and mechanisms.

Please find attached a draft document that we hope will be helpful to you
and your constituency and community groups. Presented in tabular form, it
includes definitions of terms like ³PDP Working Group², ³Non-PDP Working
Group², ³Consultation Group² and so on as well as specific notes on the
expected deliverables and outputs from each such group.

Please note that this is still a work in progress, and we expect to update
it as work is completed on other, related projects (e.g. Working Group
Sign-On and the recommendations from the Cross Community Working Groups on a
Framework of Principles for Future Cross Community Working Groups
(affectionately and perhaps more recognizably known as CWG-Squared).)
