[Internal-cg] Community discussions

Hi Narelle,

The cross-community working group/IANA (names) working documents are all at https://community.icann.org/display/gnsocwgdtstwrdshp/CWG+Documents:  none are final yet, although most of the analysis (RfP headings I, IIa & IIb) is pretty much done.

I'd say the process is quite cohesive and positive.  It wouldn't be true to say all is sweetness and light, but the discussion is healthy and by-and-large people are looking for solutions.  I'd also say that we are all better from listening to other's views as it has helped us identify concerns - a case of working together making us all stronger.

On the other hand, it is very time-consuming - I've never had so many e-mails! - and while we are making progress, it'll be tough meeting the deadline.

As I mentioned on the call, I feel a bit like the different processes are in silos. For a lot of the discussion, this is appropriate, but separability (the possible need to move from functional to structural separation between policy and IANA operations), which is turning into a key issue in the names discussion, has wider implications for the other functions.

Thank you to Martin, Russ and Daniel for your updates today on the status of the various community proposals. All involved in proposal creation should be commended for their effort.

I am wondering two things that I didn't quite get the chance to ask today in the call:
- Are the communities finding each others' work useful in building their own responses? [Obviously this can only be a subjective answer!]
- Is https://www.icann.org/en/stewardship/community up to date as a reference point for the various documented outputs

Best regards
