Thank you both for your excellent suggestions. Let's go with "working
definitions". I suggest, as we are including definitions under a "working"
title, that we do not add an objective to come up with definitions but instead,
include a footnote to explain what Margie pointed out in her email, i.e.: that
with Staff support the WG can continue to refine these definitions as it moves
ahead with its work, but that refining them at DT level would have taken too
Margie, please update the charter to reflect this.
Then, if there are no further updates, please send the charter as a final
document to the DT by 17 UTC today if possible.
DT members, I would ask that you then take the charter back to your groups for
approval. Please note that the deadline we set for this was next Friday. I
would like to set a deadline at 17 UTC on that day. Would that be workable for
everybody (please let me know if it's not)? At the Council meeting yesterday, I
informed the Council that we were working to provide them with a final approved
document by next Friday so leaving the cut-off line any later will make it
difficult for me to send that to Council on the Friday, although I realize that
time may not be the most convenient for people not in the Europe zone. I
apologize for that in advance.
