Hello Everyone:

I must admit it is difficult, absent face-to-face communication and the intuition that can be drawn from that, to determine when additional communication on an issue is needed.

Here is my position on the scope of the triage phase of our project and whether or not each group should comment on the “Access” issue.

The Charter states that the:

"The first deliverable of the EPDP Team shall be a triage document of the Temporary Specification, which includes items that have the Full Consensus support of the EPDP Team that these should be adopted as is (with no further discussion or modifications needed). These items need to be:

  *   In the body of the Temporary Specification (not in the Annex)…”

See, https://gnso.icann.org/sites/default/files/file/field-file-attach/temp-spec-gtld-rd-epdp-19jul18-en.pdf, pg 10, top.

“Not in the Annex,” makes it clear that we will not discuss the Annex during the triage. From this it logically flows that we would not provide content concerning the Annex. To do so would imply / impose an obligation on others to read and consider it during a time when we are moving with all due alacrity to complete the triage.

While there is an opportunity to write about the annex in the last comment section of the last bit of our triage discussion (a “blank” comment section if you will), comments entered there will not be discussed until an appropriate time. Those following the direction of the Charter and omitting discussion regarding “access” will not be prejudiced in any way as sufficient time will be made available to contribute to the discussion.

I hope this is helpful.

Best regards,

Dear All
I understand the position  taken  by NCSG in regard with the sequence of actions to be taken relating to unified  access model.
 However, any Constituency / SO /AC
is free to decide on  it’s own position  according to its internal discussion on any matter
No SO/AC should URGE other SO/AC in  any issue including this matter
Nonetheless, they may be requested or invited  by any other SO/AC to consider the position taken by NCSG but  NOT be URGED to do any thing
There is a need to maintain the principle of Mutual Respect as no one could urge  others to do any thing  or impose its  views /position to others .

As noted in the call, and in keeping with the charter, NCSG will refrain from addressing any access issues until the gating questions have been answered by consensus. We urge other stakeholder groups and ACs to do the same. We regret that the staff has disregarded the charter and has continued with what Berry and Kurt admitted was “a mistake.”
