[bc-gnso] Council voted to approve Charter for CCWG today

When Council considered the motion to approve the draft CCWG charter, Gabi 
raised the representation concern, saying:
We agree with parity when it comes to consensus calls/voting.
We object to disenfranchising chartered constituencies in the GNSO, which is 
the effect of limiting to 5 representatives from the GNSO.  There are 7 
chartered GNSO groups (Registries, Registrars, BC, IPC, ISPC, NCUC, NPOC).  So 
2 chartered organizations would not get a representative on the CCWG if it is 
limited to 5 reps.

Heather Forrest of IPC supported us.

Avri Doria (NCSG) disagreed with us, saying the extra reps would lead to chaos 
on CCWG.  Avri suggested the CSG chose not to have a SG structure, so it’s up 
to us to get our house in order.

James Bladel disagreed with us.

Tony Holmes supported Gabi’s concern and said we needed to address this issue 
since it will come up again.

Drafting team chair Thomas Rickert clarified that the charter permits each 
CONSTITUENCY to participate in every discussion and email list, even if the CSG 
gets only one vote during consensus calls

Gabi also raised our concern about timing:
BC members believe that the goal, as drafted, overstates the need to meet the 
so-called deadline of September 2015.  It is more important that we get the 
right accountability enhancements, and that they are supported by the community.

Thomas replied that the charter encourages CCWG to meet the Sep-2015 goal but 
is not prescriptive.  The quality of the work is the decisive factor.     The 
CCWG will determine its own outcome on the question of timing.

Council approved the Charter and also approved Thomas Rickert as GNSO co-chair 
for this CCWG.
