Excerpt from minutes of April 17 GNSO Council Meeting

Item 8: Discussion on how to complete deliberations on the Inter-Registrar 
Transfer Policy Policy Development Process (IRTP PDP) - Denial Definitions 
<http://gnso.icann.org/drafts/final-report-irt-policy-09apr08.pdf%20>

Olof Nordling reported that the Final 
Report<http://gnso.icann.org/drafts/final-report-irt-policy-09apr08.pdf%20> had 
been delivered before the due date and proposed a drafting group be formed to 
review the suggestions from constituency reports and public comments to make 
recommendations on final language that the Council could consider.

Chuck Gomes supported Olof Nordling's suggestion and believed that good 
registrar as well as registry participation was important, but that the 
drafting group membership should be open.

Avri Doria drew attention to the difference, as has been the custom to date, 
between the notion of a drafting team, a short term, ad hoc group with no 
formal charter and open participation, and a working group with a formal 
charter and procedures.

The ultimate goal of the drafting group will be to propose policy changes that 
would remove the current ambiguity for the reasons for the denial of transfers 
among registrars.

Avri Doria moved a motion to:

Create a drafting team charged with producing a recommendation for Council 
deliberation that includes precise wording for the 4
provisions for reason for denial of Inter-Registrar 
transfers<http://gnso.icann.org/drafts/final-report-irt-policy-09apr08.pdf>.
Drafting team is open to participants from all constituencies, Nominating 
Committee appointees and liaisons to the GNSO Council.

The motion carried unanimously by voice vote.

Decision 2: The GNSO Council approved the creation of a drafting team charged 
with producing a recommendation for Council deliberation that includes precise 
wording for the 4 provisions for reason for denial of Inter-Registrar 
transfers<http://gnso.icann.org/drafts/final-report-irt-policy-09apr08.pd>.
Drafting team is open to participants from all constituencies, Nominating 
Committee appointees and liaisons to the GNSO Council.

Action Item:

Avri Doria proposed:

- working with Olof Nordling, the drafting group's staff support, to develop a 
time line that will allow for a public comment period and the issue to be voted 
on during the June 2008 ICANN meetings in Paris.
- a Wiki will be set up and the group will use the mailing list archived at 
http://forum.icann.org/lists/gnso-trans-pdp/ with a modified set of subscribers
- the drafting group should elect a chair from among the participants

Dear all,
Thanks for joining this group! Others may still join, so let's have a "soft 
launch" by noting that there is useful background reading in the Final Report, 
posted at:
http://gnso.icann.org/drafts/final-report-irt-policy-09apr08.pdf
In particular, if you want a quick intro, chapter 7 "Conclusions" gives an 
overview and chapter 5 "Constituency views per issue" provides more details.

Also, I've compiled a table, attached, with the current texts of the 
provisions, the "Points of Clarification document" (annexed to the Final 
Report) suggestions and also proposed new texts, as supplied by two 
constituencies. Please check it out and we can have an email dialogue on this 
list as to whether that's useful as a starting point.

Very best regards

Olof
