Title: Re: [nc-deletes] Kicking things off...
14:00 GMT would work best for me.
Okay, my apologies to everyone
for not being very good at the whole time conversion thing, but Iíve actually
done my math wrong with my proposed times and overlapped my Thursday proposal
with the Names Council call.
Letís revise the proposed times to 16:00
GMT on Thursday (11:00 EST and 09:00 in Phoenix, but unfortunately Friday at
01:00 in Tokyo) or 14:00 GMT on Friday (9:00 EST, 7:00 in Phoenix, and 23:00
On 11/12/02 3:06 PM, "Jane Mutimear"
UK time is currently on GMT and
it's a very pleasant change to not have to translate when a call will be.
Except that I do have to as I'm going to be in Phoenix Thursday and
Friday this week, which makes the Friday proposal not terribly attractive.
I could make 15.00 GMT on Thursday.

Subject: [nc-deletes] Kicking things off...
A little belatedly, we have a
chance to kick off the work of the Deletes Task Force. I'm excited to
move ahead, and hope that all of you will share my enthusiasm for resolving
some of the issues raised in the initial issues paper. If you have not
already done so, please familiarize yourself with the paper, which can be
The issues outlined in the paper tie directly to our
terms of reference, which I've included below:
Terms of reference
1. determine whether a uniform
delete process by gtld registrars
expiry is desirable, and if so, recommend an appropriate
2. determine whether a
uniform delete process by gtld registrars

upon request is desirable, and if so, recommend an
determine whether a uniform delete and re-allocation process by
registries following receipt of a delete command from a
desirable, and if so, recommend an appropriate
4. determine whether a
uniform process for reversing errors in
commands without requiring a delete operation is
if so, recommend an appropriate process
please keep in mind that this task force is operating under the principles
of the new Policy Development Process, with very tight milestones and
deadlines. Unfortunately, due to some slowness in getting the group up
and running, we're already behind schedule, but I intend to keep us as close
as possible to the original timelines, even if the specific dates may have
to get pushed back a week or two due to the delays we've experienced thus
In the immediate future, I have three goals
for the task force:
1) Organizing a conference
call for a brief discussion of the various issues, to understand the
concerns of various constituencies in each problem area, and to identify
areas of common agreement that we can memorialize and use as a basis for
further work. Also, I expect there will be some areas of disagreement,
and we can begin to note the areas in which we are going to need to do some
harder work in order to gain consensus. Ideally, I'd like to have this
call on Thursday or Friday of this week. What are people's schedules
like at around 13:00 GMT on Friday, or alternatively, 15:00 GMT on
Generally, I'd like to do as much
communication as possible via e-mail, but given the short time frames we're
facing, some phone calls where we can all exchange ideas interactively will
2) Get constituency position
statements submitted. These were originally due on November 8.
Due to our late start, I think we'll be looking at a new due date of
November 22, but this date will be rigorously enforced. Please begin
to communicate with others from your constituency now in order to get these
3) Elect a permanent chair for the
task force. I am currently serving as the interim chair, but one of
our first orders of business should be to elect a permanent chair.
Let's submit nominations via e-mail (feel free to nominate yourself if
you're interested). If everyone is comfortable doing so, we can look
to elect a chair on our first phone call.
