Marc, apologies if there is confusion around the ask for volunteers, but the idea is that the volunteers would only start working on proposed recommendations / modifications AFTER input has been received on the issues and questions as outlined in the Google Doc. Having those volunteers identified early on could help in asking further clarifying questions based on input that is provided, but it is not the intention that these volunteers would start working on Appendix A without any guidance from the EPDP Team. I hope this clarifies. Having said that, please take a moment to review the google doc and provide your feedback on the questions identified.

Best regards,

Kurt and ePDP leadership team,

I would like to ask you to reconsider asking for volunteers at this stage to propose recommendations/modification (redlining) appendix A.  The working group has yet to deliberate on appendix A in any meaningful way and at a minimum should have some high level agreement on what aspects of appendix A are good and should be kept and what aspects are problematic and need to be changed, added to or removed.  I fear asking for working group members to work on redlines now will lead to the group debating the redlines rather than focusing on the substance of Appendix A and working towards consensus policy recommendations.

I understand that not getting to appendix A deliberations during Thursday’s call puts us behind scheduled and appreciate the desire to catch up.  That said, appendix A contains many of the critical components of the temporary specification.  We as a working group need to come to some level of agreement before drafting redlines or otherwise making policy recommendation on appendix A.

Dear All,

As discussed during the call today, please provide your input on the Appendix A related issues through this document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1M2XdbXZsvfYfsxdR1xG2qT7XZ07AopJubRH8ZX1Qt3s/edit?usp=sharing. Also, if there are volunteers to work on reviewing the input received and translating these into proposed recommendations / modifications for Appendix A, share your interest with the mailing list.


Caitlin, Berry and Marika
