[Gnso-epdp-team] Revised Consensus Designation

For the purposes of determining consensus within 
the report, please indicate that the ALAC does 
NOT support recommendations (as stated in my 
original response on 24 July timestamped 15:46 UTC):

6.2 Priority Levels
9 Automation of the SSAD
14 Financial Sustainability
18 Evolution mechanism

You may indicate support for the other recommendations.

The reference to not supporting the entire report 
is based on the correct statement within the 
report that all of the SSAD recommendations are linked and inter-dependant.

As noted in the submission of the ALAC statement, 
the ALAC will continue to consider our position 
and potentially resubmit a revised statement 
prior to the deadline of 24 August. We understand 
that any differences would not be reflected in 
the Chair's designation of consensus within the report.
