[council] Re: [nc-str] Draft report version 7 - REQUEST FOR APPROVAL
maybe you don't recall me previously expressing my concerns to you (personally at the November meeting) that this TF needed to hold some meeting (i.e. teleconf.) where views should be exchanged and we could develop a "group approach" to dealing with this issues. to date, as chair, you have not seen fit to call any meetings but rather requested that parties submit responses directly to you and you have taken it upon yourself to "distill" these comments and categorize them.
this TF has suffered from a significant lack of "interaction" which has characterized other task forces. we have, to the best of my knowledge, NEVER had any formal teleconferences or face-to-face task force meetings and as such the opportunity for "real-time" of exchanges is sorely lacking.
as one who comes from a European background, i am quite curious about your characterization of "approval", as it has been my understanding that the custom (as well as the law) in most EU countries is to determine "approval" from "specific assent" as opposed to "lack of objection".
to the best of my knowledge, you have never requested any formal vote or poll on any of the issues presented in the report but rather have taken it unto yourself to determine approval by this "lack of objection"
best you look to the approaches taken by Milton with the dot org TF or Marilyn & Tony with the "whois" & transfer TF. there has been a much more spirited "exchange of comments and ideas" following teleconferences.
the record of "outreach" in the report should indicate to you that the "methodology" for accomplishing same in this TF appears to be "inadequate" as opposed to other TF's
