1.  Not sure a questionnaire was going to be drafted, but it was basically just 
sending out the questions we have been discussing, including ultimately 
positions on the GAC proposals at the second level that are being solicited.  
In order to do that, however, we should be sure that our SGs/constituencies 
have all of the information that we have been provided over the last several 
weeks and we can make ourselves (the reps on the DT) to our SGs/constituencies, 
to answer those questions.  Not sure what Marika's comment was referring to on 
that one.

2.  Our group does have diverse participation with all SGs and constituencies 
(with the exception of the registrars which I understand a rep will be joining 
us shortly).  They may not have all been there yesterday, but rest assured, 
they are in the group, on the mailing list, and have been on the calls.

3.  I started to draft the note, but was abruptly stopped by members of the 
council who still wanted more clarification. So, to the point, no note was 
actually drafted to send to Heather.  I understand the need to a balanced view, 
so yes, if we do move forward with that, I will provide the draft to the 

4.  On your point 3, not sure what the discussion at the g-council, which has 
already been happening affects the work of this DT.  But this DT, in my 
opinion, but that is an issue for the GNSO Council to take up if they so 
choose.  For us, I think we should just keep moving forward towards a 
recommendation on a response to the GAC proposal to send to the GNSO.

We were given an assignment yesterday of going back to our Constituencies and 
Stakeholder groups with some question or other.

It is also seemed like a questionnaire would be prepared.  I think this is a 
good idea so that we are all collecting the same information and we do not end 
up trying to compare, apples, eggs and rocks.  I would like to suggest that 
this group agree on that questionnaire before we start using it.

Also, I have noticed that our group does not have very diverse participation, 
i.e we are missing people from some of the GNSO constituencies and Stakeholder 
groups.  If this was a working group under the rules of working groups are 
efforts would be denigrated by this skewed participation make up.  I do not 
recall if there are any guideline for now this extraordinary drafting team 
functions, but the lack of constituency diversity in this group seems like a 
liability to me.  Certainly somebodty has to make sure those constituencies and 
stakeholder group's who are not covered by membership are also consulted on an 
issue this important.

Finally , from the council decision that we never really discussed because it 
wasn't posted until the discussion was gaveled closed,

1. Where there any specific details about which work we should continue.  For 
example from listening to the transcript I understood that part of the work 
they expect from us was the completion of reports, including the work on 
gathering and analyzing the written and transcript evidence provided by IOC and 

2. In the drafting of the sentence, will Jeff, as this teams chair be 
consulting with this group on the correct balance to be contained in those 

3. To what degree do the upcoming discussion on discussion in the g-council on 
second level protections affect the work of this group in going beyond 
documentation work being done and research on needs and differentiating factors.
