Thanks Steve. Great news on the progress. 

On the timelines, can you remind me what happens after the close of the comment deadline? How do we get from the close of the public comment period to Day 1 of the PDP working group? How many Council meetings/votes between close of comment period and starting the hard policy work?

However, I wanted to note that during the meeting, the possibility of providing for an extended public comment period was also discussed, which would keep it open through the ICANN54 meeting. This topic is expected to be on the agenda for the next Council meeting, scheduled for 03 September and as such, it may make sense to delay the publication of the report by approximately 3 days to allow for discussion during the meeting and a decision to be made, to avoid confusion from possibly amending the comment close date. The impact appears to be minimal:

> Publish 3 September -> 40 Day Public Comment -> Close 13 October
> Publish 3 September -> 60 Day (for instance) Public Comment -> Close 2 November  
> Staff is leaning towards waiting the three days and immediately putting in the request to publish the Preliminary Issue Report after a decision is made, but wanted to be sure there were no strong objections to this approach.
