The WG-B and WG-C are not on the same schedule. Whereas WG-C consensus report has been published for public comments, WG-B formal report is just arriving. The Names Council felt it was necessary to to consider the WG-C consensus report and at the same time give more time to the WG-B.

Some members of the Names Council felt that whereas the role of the WGs is to gather public opinions and thoughts, the NC members should discuss among themselves, then combine both, and later deliver to the Board. The role of the NC is to ensure they represent the NC stakeholders, and provide recommendations based on it. Sometimes Working Groups are dominated by large talkers, not representing point of view of the Constituencies.
The draft of Statement to the ICANN Board, as amended by the Names Council, was moved as a motion by Theresa Swinehart, and seconded by Paul Kane. The Statement was approved by an unanimous vote (16 YES, 2 absents Dennis Jennings and Tony Harris).
The Statement on the new gTLDs was published immediately, and is archived on the DNSO website: http://www.dnso.org/dnso/notes/20000419.NCgtlds-statement.html
The NC resolved to open three weeks call for public comments on the WG-B formal report: http://www.dnso.org/dnso/notes/20000419.NCwgb-comments.html.
The issue of Independent Review Nominating Committee is postponed tothe next teleconference.
