WPM Team Members:


I would like to make a couple of minor changes to the latest draft
Resolution (see below) ? no changes to substance:    


1)      In the GOP, I am hoping to differentiate between ?chapters? and
?sections? to clarify terminology.   In that regard, the WPM-DT is
submitting ?Chapter 6 and its accompanying ANNEX? vs. ?Section 6.?   I made
that correction and pasted a new Resolution below.  

2)      I embedded the document links that were ?TBD? in the earlier draft.


Olga ? your recount of actions matches what I understand the team to have
decided.   It would appear that, unless Jaime has any final comments, the
Council email letter is ready to go this afternoon with a motion (and
Resolution) on Monday.   I believe that Olga was going to move and Jaime


Re:  Monday?s call, Chuck?s idea makes sense to me that, maybe 3 hours
before 1900 UTC (or 1600 UTC), via the list, a decision is made Y or N to
hold or cancel the session.   Based on the team?s progress thus far, it
doesn?t appear that it will be needed?  






WHEREAS, the ICANN Policy Staff prepared and delivered to the GNSO Council a
2008-2009 Work Team Attendance Study which confirmed that volunteer

its deliberations and developed a written procedure recommended for

it recommends be adopted in order that the first Work Prioritization effort

for conducting its first Work Prioritization effort.  


RESOLVED FURTHER, that the GNSO Council directs Staff to commence a
twenty-one (21) day public comment period on this amendment to the GNSO
Operating Procedures and reserves the right to modify the procedures
described in Chapter 6 and the ANNEX
after the conclusion of both the public comment period and the first Work
Prioritization effort.

Thanks Ken for drafting the motion and thanks Chuck for your comments.
I like the way it is written and also that it includes the timeline in the
No news from Wolf on the list and as a response to my email. 
So the idea is that at the end of today´s afternoon I can send the letter
and document to the GNSO list and we wait until Monday for sending the
motion and see if we need a meeting on Tuesday.
Let me know if I am missing something.
Best regards
