My preference is to start putting together the WG
immediately, to allow at least some people to
meet with ICANN compliance staff in Sydney and
discuss what further information is needed. This
could be completely informal unless you can see
your way to doing something during tomorrow's meeting to make this more formal.
As previously noted, I will not likely be able to joint the meeting.

We are probably ok as we did explicitly resolve for a WG to be
chartered in the PDP motion and got a vote of sufficient threshold.
This is a wrinkle in the use of absentee ballot with PDP votes, the
vote that must be taken immediately after during in the same meeting
cannot be taken immediately after during the same meeting. This needs
fixing in the by-laws.
I recommend that once we get to crafting the motion for this that we
include a line in the whereas section something like:
... as the GNSO council decided to create a WG in order to execute
this PDP ...
I am checking with legal counsel now on the utility of such a line and
how it should be worded if it should be included at all.
So yes, in answer to your question, those who are participating in
this team are asked to draft a charter and a motion for the council to
vote on. Being able to do so in Sydney or at the meeting right
after, would be good.
thanks for asking.

Marika or Avri or Chuck,
At its last meeting, Council voted to initiate a PDP. It did not (as
has been past practice) vote on whether to start a Task Force or WG,
presumably because some e-mail votes were being solicited (although
the outcome was already determined by those votes cast in person). I
assumed that tomorrow's agenda would include that decision, but I
now see that PEDNR is not even on the agenda.
Shall we assume that the DT created to do the initial work is now
supposed to craft a motion and charter for a WG for decision in
Sydney, even though there has not been a formal Council decision to
do so? If that is not the case, I don't see what today's meeting is
for, but perhaps I am missing something.

For those of you interested, you can find some examples of recent
WG charters on the following pages that might help inspire the
discussion for the PEDNR WG Charter:

In addition to the development of a proposed charter, I am hoping
to get your thoughts and ideas for the programme of the workshop on
Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery that has been scheduled for
Wednesday 24 June from 14.00 16.00 in Sydney
(see http://syd.icann.org/node/3869) to allow
for a first exchange of views with the broader community
on these issues and hopefully attract additional people to join the

Motion on Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery
Whereas on 05 December 2008, the GNSO received an Issues Report on
Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery (PEDNR);
Whereas on 29 January 2009 the GNSO Council decided to form a
(DT) to consider the form of policy development action in regard to
Whereas a DT has formed and its members have discussed and reviewed
documented in the Issues Report;
Whereas the DT has concluded that although some further information
may be needed, it should be done under the auspices of a PDP;
Whereas staff has suggested and the DT concurs that the issue of
transfer during the RGP might be better handled during the IRTP
Part C PDP.
The GNSO Council RESOLVES
To initiate a Policy Development Process (PDP) to address the
in the Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery Issues Report.
The charter for this PDP should instruct the Working Group:
that it should consider recommendations for best practices as well
instead of recommendations for Consensus Policy;
that to inform its work it should pursue the availability of further
information from ICANN compliance staff to understand how current RAA
provisions and consensus policies regarding deletion, auto-renewal,
recovery of domain names during the RGP are enforced; and
that it should specifically consider the following questions:
- Whether adequate opportunity exists for registrants to redeem
- Whether expiration-related provisions in typical registration
clear and conspicuous enough;
- Whether adequate notice exists to alert registrants of upcoming
- Whether additional measures need to be implemented to indicate
that once a
domain name enters the Auto-Renew Grace Period, it has expired
status, a notice on the site with a link to information on how to
other options to be determined).
- Whether to allow the transfer of a domain name during the RGP.
The GNSO Council further resolves that the issue of logistics of
registrar transfer during the RGP shall be incorporated into the
charter of the
IRTP Part C charter.
