[gnso-contactinfo-pdp-wg] URGENT Correction to Recommendation 4 - REPLY NEEDED!
Dear colleagues, Many thanks for your work on this urgent issue at such a busy time. As Co-Chair, I would like to determine that we have reached full consensus on the correction to Recommednation #4 on pages 4 (Executive Summary) and 20 (full text recommendations). Regards, Chris. == Research Associate in Linguistic Computing, Centre for Digital Humanities, UCL, Gower St, London WC1E 6BT Tel +44 20 7679 1599 (int 31599) ucl.ac.uk/dis/people/chrisdillon 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
