Re: [gnso-contactinfo-pdp-wg] URGENT Correction to Recommendation 4 - REPLY NEEDED!
I was there during the presentation to the GNSO Council when this was discovered.
I believe this was an editorial misstep on the part of the working group and that there was no intention to suggest such a material change to obligations that are beyond the remit of this working group.
I support the change as proposed below. Jim On 6/20/15 4:10 PM, Lars Hoffmann wrote:
Dear all, Please all read this careful and*try to reply on list as soon as possible*. It has come to our attention that there was an important term mistakenly used in Recommendation #4 of our Final Report The Recommendation reads currently: */Recommendation #4/*/ The Working Group recommends that, regardless of the language(s)/script(s) used, it is assured that the data fields are consistent to standards in the Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), relevant L Policy, Additional Whois Information Policy (AWIP) and any other applicable polices. Entered contact information data are verified, in accordance with the aforementioned Policies and Agreements and the language/script used must be easily identifiable./ */Level of consensus: Full Consensus/* The term ‘verified’ in the second sentence of the recommendation has legal implications and would change significantly the contractual obligations of the Contracted Parties. As the substance of the Final Report on that particular issue makes it clear that "validation" was intended to be used instead of “verification”. Both co-Chairs agree that this is a clerical mistake as the Group meant to use the term ‘validate’ _not_ ‘verifiy’ and it should be changed accordingly. With your consent we would like change the working to reflect the actual meaning of what the Group meant to recommend. In order to prevent delaying the GNSO Council’s vote on our Final Report, this would have to happen as soon as possible so that the Motion to adopt can be changed accordingly and in time for Wednesday’s Council discussion and vote. Many thanks and best wishes, Lars
