Hi Adrian.

The team was me, Kristina, Tim, Alan and recently Jeff Neuman.  Text was
unanimously agreed although i made some minor edits at last turn that
some may not have seen.

There is precedent for Council to monitor implementation of its
policies, and seemed like a good idea for this.

I have a few issues with what you have suggested but will wait for the
Registrar Constituency's response prior to proposing them.

That said, I am not sure I understand Part 3 of your motion and would
like some clarification.

I am of the opinion that once the Board decides on supporting a request
or a policy, that it becomes a "Board policy". Why are we instructing
staff to report back to the GNSO council? Surely the Board would want to
grapple with the effectiveness and implications arising out of the
policy "they" implemented. It is up to them, I would think, to set the
parameters of measurement.

I could be wrong, but I thought that we, as the GNSO Council were to
suggest policy and provide background to enable the ICANN Board to make
informed decisions. It is the ICANN Board that makes policy and reviews
the effectiveness of those decisions.

Is it our job to get ICANN staff to report to us on matters of the

Also, can you please provide some clarity around "the Design Team"
(perhaps just to remind me again). Who were the members exactly and how
did you arrive at the motion? How was consensus for the actual wording

Thanks for this and sorry if I am backtracking unnecessarily.

Subject: [council] Motions re Domain Tasting

The Domain Tasting team has devised the following motion, which
effectively would put the attached substantive motion out for public
comments for 21 days and set a timeline for final vote in our April 17
Council meeting.
Whereas, the GNSO Council has discussed the Issues Report on Domain
Tasting and the Final Outcomes Report of the ad hoc group on Domain
Whereas, the GNSO Council resolved on 31 October 2007 to launch a PDP on
Domain Tasting and to request Constituency Impact Statements with
respect to issues set forth in the Issues Report and in the Final
Outcomes Report;
Whereas, the GNSO Council authorized on 17 January 2008 the formation of
a small design team to develop a plan for the deliberations on the
Domain Tasting PDP (the "Design Team"), the principal volunteers to
which had been members of the Ad Hoc Group on Domain Tasting and were
well-informed of both the Final Outcomes Report of the Ad Hoc Group on
Domain Tasting and the GNSO Initial Report on Domain Tasting
(collectively with the Issues Report, the "Reports on Domain Tasting");
Whereas, the Design Team has met and agreed on a Draft Motion [attached]
to be set out for public comment and for Constituency Impact review;
1.    The Draft Motion shall be posted for 21-day public comment on
March 7,
2008.  Each Constituency shall have 21 days from March 7, 2008 to update
its Constituency Impact Statement with respect to this motion, if it so
The deadline for amended Statements shall be March 28, 2008.
2.    ICANN Staff please shall provide a summary of any public comments
and/or amended Constituency Impact Statements to the Council, via
submission of a Final Report with respect to this PDP, by April 4, 2008.
3.    The Design Team shall then meet and confer with respect to the
Report, in order to consider any public comments and/or amended
Constituency Impact Statements and to consider any suggested amendments
to the Draft Motion, and shall recommend a Final Motion to be considered
by Council for vote in its scheduled meeting April 17, 2008.
4.    It is the intention of the GNSO for the Staff to produce a Board
Report on this PDP for consideration by the ICANN Board, in the hope
that the Board may vote on any recommendations of the GNSO with respect
to this PDP, at the scheduled ICANN meeting in Paris in June, 2008
