To allow for both SG and possible Council action on the AoC RT
endorsement process, I suggested 45 days total for the GNSO endorsement
process after the close of the application period.  Here's the response
I received.  I personally don't see any way to reduce it to 2 weeks.
What do others think?

Chuck, thanks for the good news of the GNSO getting close to finalize
this process.

45 days seems to me a too long period of time; let's work backward based
on this hypothesis.

October 1st - beginning activities RTs 2 and 4

September 20 - final list of candidates delivered to Selectors for
selection of members

August 1st - closing of the application period

June 25 (end Bxl meeting) - launching of call for applicants.

This means that the application period will run only for one month in
July, summer holiday in this part of the world... From my perspective
this can have negative repercussions in terms of outreach.

Would it be feasible to squeeze the 'internal' period down from 45 to 2

Best regards

The GNSO is getting close to finalizing an ongoing process for endorsing
candidates and to help us to that I have one question for the Selectors
and staff supporting the process:  The GNSO SGs will need some time
after the end of the candidate application period ends to endorse
candidates and once they do that, the GNSO Council may also have to act.
Would 45 days be too much time after close of the application period? Is
it reasonable to think that that much time could be built into the
process or is that too much?

Dear colleagues


Two Affirmation-mandated reviews are to start on October 1st, namely the
'Whois policy'; and 'Security, Stability and Resiliency of the DNS'.
The lesson we learned from the 'Accountability and Transparency'
experience is that the process leading to the establishment of a Review
Team can be quite time-consuming. Hence my suggestion would be to start
the preliminary activities for these upcoming reviews quite soon. 


Based on our experience I would like to suggest the following sequence:

*         Chairs consult their respective AC/SO on the size and
composition of the both RTs - next 3 weeks.

*         After agreement among Chairs on the issue above, the call for
nominations is renewed and each AC/SO would endorse 2-3 time more
candidates that agreed above - mid May - 20 June.

*         Selectors make selection and announce composition of the both
RTs at the end of the Brussels meeting.


Would this sequence be acceptable? Pls provide your comments at your
earliest convenience.


Best regards



PS. The proposal has not been agreed yet by both Selectors. These are
just my personal ideas. JK
