Hello all -

I think that we have a relatively small workload to deal with and can probably 
deal with our task in a relatively lightweight fashion.

I would like to propose the following approach to our work.

a) everyone independently review the following document http:// 
gnso.icann.org/drafts/Transfer-Policy-Issues-23aug07.pdf (Oct 25 - November 5)
b) comments, questions and clarifications back to the list for discussion (Oct 
25 - November 10).
c) each participant independently prioritizes the work items outlined in the 
aforementioned document (a uniform template will be provided) (November 10-15)
d) I will merge all of the prioritized list into a draft "master"  
list (November 15)
e) teleconference to discuss and agree on final "master" list and contents of 
communication back to Council. (sometime during the third week of November 
based on availability)

Does this sound like a reasonable approach to everyone?

Thanks for volunteering for this effort.
