Thanks Ken.  Please see my responses below.

        Subject: [gnso-wpm-dt] WPM: Draft Council Resolution and

        WPM Team Members:


        The DRAFT Resolution, below, now incorporates the suggestions
made by Chuck and a few additional tweaks of my own after a few
additional rereads.   The timeline is the same as my first version.  
        [Gomes, Chuck] It looks fine to me. 


        Concerning format, how should we connect the Timeline to the
Resolution?    Can it be tacked to the bottom of the resolution as I am
showing with an embedded reference "(see below)"?  
        [Gomes, Chuck] What you did seems okay to me.  Another way to do
it is to provide a link in the motion but I think the timeline is brief
enough that that is not necessary. 


        Any thoughts about having our teleconference on Monday, as
scheduled, to finalize the resolution and timeline? 
        [Gomes, Chuck] Does anyone think we need a meeting to discuss
the motion or anything else?  If so, we should have it.  If we are able
to agree on the motion on the list and there are no other specific
reasons to have a meeting, then I suggest we cancel it.  Maybe we should
wait until 3 hours before the scheduled meeting time on Monday and make
a decision then; if no one has identified a need for the meeting, then
cancel it at that time.  That should also allow enough time for meeting
details to be sent out at that time (correct me if I am wrong on that
