Dear Olivier,

I think that "nous aurons du pain sur la planche" as the French people say. 

There is a problem in the poll dates: while it was written in the announce
that it opens on 9 October 2011 and closes on 14 October 2011, the dates on
the poll are 31 March 2011 - 6 April 2011. So, the vote is not possible
since we are far behind 6 April.

Objet : [ALAC] ALAC/At-Large Improvements Project -- important update

Dear ALAC members,

I want to inform you of some changes to the Improvements report based on
information Heidi and Seth received. After consulting with ICANN Legal, it
has been suggested that the only "final report" appropriate for Board
approval would come once the ALAC can report having implemented *all* the
recommendations of the ALAC Review WG.

At this stage, however, we could report that the ALAC has completed a
substantial amount of ALAC Improvements work, including developing specific
proposals for the implementation of the ALAC Review WG recommendations.
Consequently, it was suggested that the current status report – which need
only be submitted by staff (not by the ALAC) – not be called a “final
report”’; we are thinking of calling it the "ALAC/At-Large Improvements
Project Milestone Report."

Still, an endorsement of this Milestone Report by the ALAC would send a
strong message to the Board. So I have instructed Staff to start a vote
endorsing the report on Sunday.

The next steps in the At-Large Improvements Project will be for the ALAC to
discuss the implementation of the remaining ALAC Review recommendations and
WT proposals in Dakar, including allocating them to existing At-Large
Working Groups, creating timelines for their completion, and determining
potential resource implications.

I would like to be able to submit these details to the Board as soon as
practical but hopefully no later than the meeting in Costa Rica (11-16 March
2012). The ALAC could then aim to submit the actual final Final Report --
marking the completion of the implementation of all Improvements
recommendations -- to the Board in Prague (24-28 June 2012).

Comments/Questions are welcome.

Seth and others are working to convert the report into a "Milestone"
report as we speak.

Best regards,

Olivier Crépin-Leblond
ALAC Chair
