Subject: schedule for completing our work?


Dear Kurt:


As some have mentioned on the list, time to deliver the Final Report is
rapidly approaching, and it will be difficult to squeeze yet more hours out
of the team. On behalf of SSAC I'm requesting your view about what the
schedule will look like between now and delivery of the Final Report to


It's our understanding that the GNSO operating guidelines and the EPDP
charter oblige the WG to deliver certain things in the Final Report, which
the WG team will need prepare in the next few weeks.  The language of some
of the Recommendations continues to evolve, so we are wondering at what
point everyone puts down their pencils and participants will be able to
review the proposed final Recommendation language.  It seems that only at
that point will it be possible to confirm consensus levels.  


Some of the tasks still to be accomplished are as follows.  What is your
plan for the below?

1.	"Each recommendation in the Final Report should be accompanied by
the appropriate consensus level designation, per the Standard Methodology
for Making Decisions".  When will the measuring or designation process take
place, and what  process are your planning to use?  
2.	"It is the role of the Chair to designate which level of consensus
is reached and announce this designation to the Working Group. Member(s) of
the Working Group should be able to challenge the designation of the Chair
as part of the Working Group discussion."  
3.	"In cases of Consensus, Strong support but significant opposition,
and No Consensus, an effort should be made to document that variance in
viewpoint and to present any Minority View recommendations that may have
been made.  Documentation of Minority View recommendations normally depends
on text offered by the proponent(s). In all cases of Divergence, the WG
Chair should encourage the submission of minority viewpoint(s)." 


#3 above will require that the WG participants get some time with the draft
Final Report to perform review and submit final notes.


If all of this has already been laid out to the team, please excuse me
asking again.  (The schedule info I have been able to find looks out of
date.)  Anyway, it seems like a good time to confirm this stuff to the team
as we all push to the finish line together. 


With best wishes,
