[ALAC-ExCom] Extend Comment Period on Draft ALAC Position Description?

Dear All,

After reading the transcript of the August 4th meeting, my understanding is that you agreed to start a 30-day comment period for all three languages, starting on August 5th and ending on September 4th (if I counted correctly).

If you agree, we will announce the French and Spanish versions of the Draft PD and note that the comment period in all three languages will be extended until September 4th.

Here's an excerpt from the transcript:

Sébastien: ......Comments in both languages are welcome. Let's say from tomorrow and 30 days, and that's it. You will have to make some work at the end of the comment period. Don't make any work, now.

Alan: Okay. That's fine with me. I am not looking for more work. I just thought that would make it a little bit easier to read, if the comments follow the actual points in the document.

Kind Regards,

My recollection (and I have not listened to the MP3) was that we decided to start a 30 day clock starting when Nick formally announced the English version. That was not my (impatient) preference, but I thought that this was what was decided. Which would mean the period ends for all on Sept 11.

Dear ExCom,

Contrary to what was said during our phone call on Tuesday, the French and Spanish versions of the Draft ALAC PD have not yet been published for comment. We just received the translations yesterday. Sorry about the confusion.

According to the announcement sent out on 11th August, English speakers have two weeks to comment on the Draft ALAC PD (ending on 25th August). To ensure that French and Spanish speakers will have as much time as the English speakers, we suggest that we extend the deadline for the French and Spanish versions for two week starting today and closing on 3rd September, which would still be more than a week before the end of the nomination periods:

Nomination for ALAC Representatives are accepted until 12th September.
Nominations for the position of Board Liaison are accepted until 15th September.
Nominations for other liaison positions are accepted until 9th October.

Please let us know if you agree with this proposal.

Kind Regards,
