[nc-udrp] Resurrection of UDRP Task Force
I must sincerely apologize that you were left off the distribution list for the UDRP TF until Glen, the DNSO Secretariat, and Caroline Chicoine, former TF Chair, reminded me of your participation. I obtained my list of representatives from the Task Force Archives, your name and e-mail contact details were not listed on the document I reviewed. I hope you will accept my apologies for this oversight. To get you up to speed, I have included the only substantive e-mail I have distributed in the last week or so. If you are still interested in participating and can make the call, please join us. If you are unable to make the call, please let me know whether you are still interested in participating in our work.
In addition, a conference call was held on November 19, 2002 at 15:00 UTC. On this call, we discussed no issues of substance because it was decided that the timeline set forth in the message copied below is perhaps too aggressive given the amount of work that lays before the group. Accordingly, it was decided that the TF will have its second conference call on Wednesday, Dec. 4th at 15:00 UTC. In the Interim,
Your continued participation would be greatly appreciate by myself, the Names Council and the rest of the Task Force. If you are still willing and able to assist us in this endeavor, please contact me by return message so that I can ensure you are copied in on all the necessary correspondence and receive call-in information for all the necessary conference calls. During our next call, it is my hope that we develop a concrete action plan for developing our report for submission to the Names Council.

ORIGINALLY DISTRIBUTED 8 NOV. 2002
This message shall serve as my first official communication to the Task Force regarding moving this process forward. I sent out a message earlier requesting a response regarding your continued participation in this Task Force. From the responses I have received, I believe the following people wish to continue participating on this Task Force:
Caroline Chicoine, Jeff Neuman, Katrina Burchell, M. Scott Donahey, Ethan Katsh, John Berryhill, Mac Waldbaum, Dan Steinberg
The following person cannot continue:
F. Peter Philips - as a CPR provider representative
I have not heard from the following people (or if I have their response was erased during a computer glitch on my end):
Sarah Deutsch, Neil Dundas, Antonio Harris, Michael Palage, Dr. Joelle Thibault; Tim Cole, Erik Wilbers, Joon Hyung Hong and Graeme Dinwoodie.
If any of the above are still interested, please send me an e-mail to confirm your continued participation before November 13, 2002.
In addition, I note that Asian Domain Name Dispute Resolution Centre does not have a representative or panelist representative on this Task Force and I would like to offer an invitation to this organization to place a provider and panelist representative on the Task Force. I think it would be valuable to have an Asian provider's perspective on the issues considered by this group.
Given that this Task Force finds itself caught between the old ICANN policy development process and the new PDP which is attached as Appendix 1 to the new ICANN by-laws adopted in Shanghai, I propose that we continue this Task Force on a hybrid basis.
My first proposal is that the Task Force aim to have a preliminary report consisting of an analysis of the survey results and the various papers which have been submitted to the Task Force by December 15, 2002. Once this preliminary report is complete, I propose that we then take up the schedule set out in the new PDP with just minor modifications. I have listed this proposed schedule below and I have highlighted the changes below:
