RE: [nc-whois] feedback/ suggested call with you
indeed missed you. We had some discussion about our mandate, and I
volunteered to see if you have a copy that you could plse forward to the
list. FYI there were 2 important issues that came up that we will need to
reflect upon, upon which you may have some thoughts:
- whether to release the surveys along with our
draft report (there is merit to keeping them confidential until our final
report; on the other hand, it is difficult to request meaningful comments if the
community does not have any of the data).
whether we should, in some fashion, have at least one person look at each survey
(a daunting task, and yet we might be criticized for not doing so, both by
people who took the time to fill in the text parts and by people who will look
at all the results, draw contrary conclusions and discredit the report b/c
we omitted to review all data).
of us do not have firm views on these issues yet

Paul, thanks, we had a very productive meeting. Tim Denton attended as
the registrar substitute for you (as though anyone could!), and we will post
minutes from the meeting shortly .. in a day or two...
would like to have a conf. call with you if you can manage it, next Wed. at
9:00 a.m. EST, to get all of us on the same page on where we started,
and where we are now...
Paul, can you let me know: I volunteered to get a bridge and to ask
you. You'll see in the minutes the decisions reached, and issues still
to be addressed, so I'll leave that feedback for that
miss you! This will also give us a chance to tell you
Steve, can you forward to your colleague until we figure out
whether to add her/you permanently?
Thanks again Marilyn for taking
the lead on this....
May I draw your attention to the draft report outline we discussed at the
iv) otherLayout of the report
- Background / Set stage for what the survey does/doesn't do
Clear / consensus responses
Areas where more work is necessary
Suggestions as to the form of that additional work.
- How to take the WHOIS issue to the next phase and what forum
Any further action items
also one needs to give thought to the Confidential aspects of the
Wishing you all a productive meeting

I suggest that we gather at the bar at Marriott tomorrow around 4:45
and find the room. Diane has arranged for us to have a meeting
I'll see her and pick up the key.
I'm sure that others have ideas as well, but some of the topics I would
suggest that we need to address as a TF are:
Changes in membership on committee/when will folks be in place?
Status from all on reading of the outputs
Key issues of concern
identified by each
Individual reports as appropriate
timeframe for agreeing on a framework for
formatting material to support the report
Discussion of drafting of

process for choosing the chair to replace Paul
