RE: [nc-whois] drafting of the interim report... D. TBD

For everyone on line during our call now, I am sending a possible
elaboration to the draft outline that Marilyn and Tony circulated, which,
while comprehensive, does not seem to address the critical issue of
analyzing the data by category of respondent.  I hope this is helpful on the
call.  Note that the suggested assignments are purely notional, subject to
people volunteering for what they would like (other than the constituency
they represent!)

Survey information - Drafters: All, see below, by category....
			Interesting anomalies
			Clear / consensus responses
			Areas where more work is necessary
			Suggestions as to the form of that additional work

			Dividing the analysis of 3000, by category, eg:  
				Commercial - GA and Registrar
				Non-Comm org user - BC 
				Gov't user - NonComm
				Individual - IP and cc 
				Registrar/Registry - NonComm
				ISP - gTLD
				Other -  ISP

Subject: [nc-whois] drafting of the interim report... D. TBD
Importance: High

In our last call, the co-chairs  noted that we would provide an outline for
the interim/draft report of the TV.  What follows is the outline for the
full report, the relevant sections for an interim report are in bold. We
took the draft provided by Paul Kane, the original chair, updated the input
based on the work of the group, and are providing an updated outline. In our
call tomorrow, we will discuss and take input. BUT, assignments and
volunteers for drafting will be done offline so that we can manage
effectively in the meeting tem allocated.

Also, Miriam Sapiro, Tim Denton, and a couple of other participants
volunteered to offer suggestions on the outline of the report. Tony and
Marilyn have tried to take into account all input received to date.
Therefore, we attach it; will take questions, and will seek to finalize as
much as possible...on the call. 

In the meantime, even as we take comment on the outline, we want to move
ahead with interim agreements  so that the work of the TF continues.  

The draft outline for a report on the survey is attached and will be one
segment of our discussion tomorrow on our call.

Please understand we will not be debating either format or assignments on
the call.  So, treat this section accordingly.  THE ONLY DISCUSSION IN THIS

ABOUT DRAFTING:  Secondly, we are managing the broad interests and needs of
all TF participants.  This is a drafting effort which involves a broad set
of interests.  You aren't signing onto a final document at this point.  All
TF members will have editing opportunities, regardless of  whether you
drafted or not...

Tony and Marilyn, as chairs, will take input on volunteers for drafting
sections and will make assignments in a follow up memo. You can volunteer,
via email, for your first three priorities in drafting team assignments. We
will do our best to ensure that everyone gets into one of their three
preferences. Since there are many segments, this will be an art form for
Tony and Marilyn in terms of assignments.  :-) You may get your first
choice, your second choice, etc.  Our priority is the total outcome... help
us by being flexible and accommodating, in spite of personal prefererences.
That will advance the credibility and integrity of the TF with the community
and father our common goals. 

We know we can count on you to be flexible and cooperative in this process. 

as always.

Regards, Marilyn and  Tony
