Good evening,

 

Here is the text as I modified it.

There is important modification (section 3 and 5 not 4) and minor ones.

 

 

Dear JAS WG Co-Chairs,

 

As one of the two chartering AC/SOs of the JAS WG, the ALAC would like to
offer certain recommendations, for your consideration, in order to boost the
WG’s efforts efficiently forward at this point.  

It is the ALAC’s hope that these recommendations will be taken in the spirit
in which they are intended – as guidance rooted in the shared goal of having
the JAS WG fulfil its mandate within the agreed timetable. 

 

The ALAC recommends that the JAS WG – starting with its conference call on
Friday, 29 April – thoroughly review the “JAS Issues and Recommendations”
summary document, located at:
*https://community.icann.org/display/jaswg/JAS+Issues+and+Recommendations*

created by the JAS Drafting Team. This document, once complete, will define
and summarize the JAS WG’s consensus on a select number of important
high-level issues, particularly: 

 

    *

      The required criteria of applicants qualifying for support (i.e.

      who can qualify); and

    *

      How are gTLD applications evaluated against the above criteria.

 

These issues are covered in the document’s Parts 3 and 5, on which the ALAC
recommends the WG most strongly focus. As per the WG's Charter, substantive
outcome is sought particularly in these issues.

 

The goal of this review would be to facilitate the JAS WG’s discussion – and
resolution – of those aspects of this document that are still incomplete or
for which there is still no clear WG consensus. 

Please note that many of these unresolved issues are currently marked in red
within the document. We believe that the needed agreement on this small
number of high-level issues can be reached /without/ the WG’s also having to
agree, at this time, on the many underlying details it has been discussing. 

 

Specifically, the ALAC recommends that the JAS WG go about the review of
this document – and reaching agreement on the issues it covers – in the
following way:

 

    * This document review could be efficiently moderated by the JAS WG pen
holder, Evan Leibovitch.

    * The document should be displayed in the meeting’s Adobe Connect Room
so that all members are, quite literally, on   

      the same page.

    * The changes on which the JAS WG agrees should be made to the document
during the discussion itself – that is, "in 

      real time" during the WG’s call. 

 

It is the ALAC’s hope that the JAS WG, by focusing its work in this way
immediately (as of its 29 April meeting), will be able to successfully reach
a consensus on a number of fundamental issues in the few meetings it still
has before the 6 May deadline for its report to its chartering organizations
to be completed.   

 

I and other members of the ALAC Executive Committee would welcome the
opportunity to discuss these suggestions with you further.

 

Kind regards,

Dear ALAC ExCom:

 

Seth Green has very kindly worked on a first draft based on the

discussions and action items of our 28/04/2011 ALAC ExCom single issue

conference call. I have made a small number of amendments.

Please review ASAP & email me your own amendments. I'll then email a

copy to GNSO Council Chair to give him a headway and will then email the

Co-Chairs of the WG, CC'ing GNSO Council Chair + Vice Chair, as well as

the ALAC ExCom a couple of hours later.

Kind regards,

 

Olivier

Dear JASWG Co-Chairs,

 

 

 

As one of the two chartering AC/SOs of the JASWG, the ALAC would like to

offer certain recommendations, for your consideration, in order to boost

the WG’s efforts efficiently forward at this point.  It is the ALAC’s

hope that these recommendations will be taken in the spirit in which

they are intended – as guidance rooted in the shared goal of having the

JASWG fulfil its mandate within the agreed timetable. 

 

 

 

The ALAC recommends that the JASWG – starting with its meeting on

Friday, 29 April – thoroughly review the “JASIssues and Recommendations”

summary document (located at

*https://community.icann.org/display/jaswg/JAS+Issues+and+Recommendations*),

created by the JAS Drafting Team.   This document, once complete, will

define and summarize the JAS WG’s consensus on a select number of

important high-level issues, particularly: 

 

    *

      The required criteria of applicants qualifying for support (i.e.

      who can qualify); and

    *

      What these applicants can expect to get.

 

These issues are covered in the document’s Parts 3 and 4, on which the

ALAC recommends the WG most strongly focus. As per the WG's Charter,

substantive outcome is sought particularly in these issues.

 

 

 

The goal of this review would be to facilitate the JASWG’s discussion –

and resolution – of those aspects of this document that are still

incomplete or for which there is still no clear WG consensus.  Please

note that many of these unresolved issues are currently marked in red

this document – and reaching agreement on the issues it covers – in the

following way:

 

 

 

    * This document review could be efficiently moderated by the JASWG

      member most familiar with this document, Evan Leibovitch.

    * The document should be displayed in the meeting’s Adobe Connect

      Room so that all members are, quite literally, on the same page.

    * The changes on which the JASWG agrees should be made to the
