I am happy to take line edits on the existing report - please refer to page and section numbers. I don't expect that the discussions will be re-opened. I have not taken some suggestions for changes because they didn't have the agreement of the whole group. I am not able to arbitrarily change text, especially as it relates to recommendations, if the group have not agreed a position. Note also that I need, for the final version, to re-insert the requirement under Section E of the GNSO PDP bylaws which requires the following:

e. Task Force Report. ... Each Task Force Report must include:

1. A clear statement of any Supermajority Vote position of the task force on the issue;

2. If a Supermajority Vote was not reached, a clear statement of all positions espoused by task force members submitted within the twenty- day timeline for submission of constituency reports. Each statement should clearly indicate (i) the reasons underlying the position and (ii) the constituency(ies) that held the position;

3. An analysis of how the issue would affect each constituency of the task force, including any financial impact on the constituency;

4. An analysis of the period of time that would likely be necessary to implement the policy; and

5. The advice of any outside advisors appointed to the task force by the Council, accompanied by a detailed statement of the advisors' (i) qualifications and relevant experience; and (ii) potential conflicts of interest.

In particular we must do 3, 4 & 5.

The Saturday meeting has been scheduled and I hope that if anyone can provide textual edits, that they would do so prior to that meeting.

The public comment period ends during the ICANN meeting. I would suggest that any comments from that archive can be taken into account at the Saturday meeting -- I don't expect many public comments which are differentiated from constituency positions.

Thanks for getting the report out. It does skew our schedule a bit more as we will not be able to turn this over to the council during the Lisbon meeting.

We currently have a meeting scheduled for the Saturday before. I think this meeting is still necessary as I am not certain that alll of the requested considerations that came out in our discussion were handled to everyone's satisfaction. So I propose that we write the agenda to cover any issues that members of the TF still have with the report as written and that we take into account any public comments that have come in at that point.

We also need, at this time, to schedule a task call after the close of the comment period and then will need to schedule a vote on the document for sometime after all issues with the document have been resolved.

The GNSO Council's Task Force on Policies for Contractual Conditions:
Existing Registries (PDP Feb 06) has completed its draft Final Report and seeks public comments on the draft recommendations.

The draft recommendations are found in the Recommendation Summary of the draft Report which is posted at http://gnso.icann.org/ issues/gtld-policies/gnso-pdp-feb06-tfr-08mar07.htm. In addition, a comparison chart of all of ICANN's registry contracts can be found at http://gnso.icann.org/drafts/draft-comparison-of-icann- registry-agreements-20061009.htm. The two documents should be read together for comprehensive information about the policy development process.

The original Task Force Terms of Reference can be found at http:// gnso.icann.org/issues/gtld-policies/tor-pdp-28feb06.html.

The full record of the Task Force's work can be found at http:// gnso.icann.org/issues/gtld-policies/.

Public comments on the proposed recommendations will be used to further inform the Task Force before it sends its final Report to the GNSO Council for consideration.

Further information on any aspect of the PDP can be obtained from Dr Liz Williams, ICANN's Senior Policy Counselor.

Please take time to comment.

Thank you.
