Welcome to the IRTP-B.
Is there such a difference between:
a) posting of a report and the clear advance notice of the opening of the
comment period (giving the reader time to read the report and carefully
b) a comment period open from the day the report is published to the same
Surely 20 days is enough time to post a comment.
It is not a fórum but public comment on a report.

Is there any harm to open up the public comment period immediately,
and have it end 20 days after Brussels? The dollar cost of opening up
a mailing list now, vs. a month from now is approximately $0.
As you are aware, I've complained loudly, to no avail, in the past
about having more than 10 ICANN comment periods open simultaneously
and ending around April 1st:
This is actually one of the quieter periods. Having it open as long as
possible helps the community. There were only 6 or 7 total comments in
your last comment period, yet radical proposals were created. Don't
you want as much public input as possible?
Also, having it open for only 20 days after Brussels is unhelpful,
because you're expecting the community to spend their summer holidays
reading ICANN issues (i.e. how many comments do you really expect from
June 25 to July 15th, really?). If ICANN really expects community
involvement, they can't say "community, go to work, while we go to the
beach on holidays."
If the working group has basically decided to take the easy route and
relax until September or October, perhaps they should wait until then
before ending the comment period. There are still 3 weeks before
