Re: [ga] Re: Abusing consensus in the Tranfers TF

Let me be clear about this. The TF has and continues to undertake work
around points 1-5. My proposal simply advocates that we should begin to
analyze recommendations that will fulfill point 6 in parallel with our
closing work on points 1-5. If any of the work-yet-to-be-done on points 1-5
conflicts with our work on point 6 then we must reconsider our work on point

It's called "parallelization of effort" and constitutes perfectly valid
process. As I mentioned to the TF sometime over the last couple of days, as
long as we remain cognizant of the interdependencies between the various
tracks, then we should have no problem working through to the deadline that
I proposed. It might require some additional horsepower and attention, but
it is a perfectly reasonable deadline.

As far as seeking your concurrence on our work schedule, I'm going to have
to defer. The reality of the matter is that there is a proposal on the table
that the TF can accept, reject, modify or do nothing with. If the GA has
significant agreement/disagreement with the approach that I am advocating,
then I would strongly recommend that you work with your representative and
chair to ensure that the prevailing sentiment of this forum is appropriately
represented in the TF. In other words, talk to the proposal.

While having this discussion here makes for good sport, it does very little
to contribute to timely closure of an issue that has been wallowing in the
DNSO for over a year now.
