Jeff and Group:
I conditionally support this idea, with the following assumptions /
1. That ICANN intends to sponsor travel (airfare & lodging, at minimum)
for the RSG participants. This would essentially be myself, as Paul is
local to the DC area (might mean a long commute, however).
2. That our agenda is sufficiently ambitious as to either (1)
dramatically shorten the lifecycle of this working group, (2) decrease
the frequency / length of recurring meetings, or (3) both (1) and (2).
This to ensure the best use of everyone's time away from the office and
3. That the scheduled F2F does not conflict with other travel

As most of you are aware, the PDP-WT has made slow progress on the new
Policy Development Process partly due to limited attendance and
participation over the last few months. With the new Council taking its
seat in Seoul, we have been discussing ways to speed up the process and
come to a timely agreement on the new Policy Development Process. As a
result, we would like to propose to organise a 1.5 – 2 day face to
face meeting of the PDP-WT. The objective of this meeting would be to
wrap up the discussions on the different stages and reach agreement on
the overall recommendations and proposed changes to the ICANN by-laws in
order to implement the new PDP.
To facilitate such a meeting, ICANN has informed me that it would take
care of arranging the logistics and provide funding to a limited number
of participants (e.g. 1 participant from each constituency, Advisory
Committee, etc.). Taking into account the geographic spread of the
participants of the WT, the proposal would be to organize the meeting on
the US East Coast, e.g. Washington DC. Of course, remote participation
facilities would be made available for those not able to travel to the
meeting. Ideally such a meeting would be held before the end of the year
or in early January at the latest.
The WT might want to discuss this proposal in further detail at its
meeting coming Thursday and on the e-mail list prior to Seoul. If there
is support for the organisation of such a face to face meeting, the next
step would be to confirm a date and location as soon as possible so that
the necessary arrangements can be made in a timely fashion.
Please let me know your thoughts.
