Here's this for laughs:

Meanwhile, I'll ask staff to copy comments but they won't be attributed to you easily. Best if each person does it.

This is exactly what I complained about. Tijani, Bastiaan, Hadia and my comments are NOT there.

So Evin, please work with Jonathan to track down any and all comments made on this issue - and then the two of you make sure the link to this page is on the policy page front and centre.   Otherwise, we risk not capturing what ALAC members think.

(and Alan's explanation would also be useful as an introduction to the issue - together with any additional such as the fact that we are in the process of selecting ALAC members for the EPDP - and when they are named, list them on the page

As I hope you are all aware, due to the European General Data
Protection Regulations (GDPR), access to some gTLD Domain Name
registrant information (WHOIS) is being restricted. Traditionally,
for a registrant who did not use a proxy service a WHOIS Query would
reveal their full name, address, phone number and e-mail address. If
you do a lookup for one of my addresses today you will see almost
nothing! Try looking up alangreenberg.org at https://whois.icann.org.

This increases privacy for some registrants and also makes
information harder to access for those who currently use WHOIS.

There are serious monetary fines associated with GDPR, so compliance
is important.

In addressing the new regulations, there has been a lot of discussion
within ICANN over the last year. A GNSO Policy Development Process
(PDP) started about 2 years ago which should have provided a new
system (now called a Registration Directory Service (RDS) instead of
WHOIS), but unfortunately that process has not completed in sufficient time.

As a result, to meet the GDPR deadline of 25 May 2018, the ICANN
Board implemented a Temporary Specification Policy to allow us and
our contracted parties (Registrars and Registries) to be
GDPR-compliant. That temporary policy must be replaced by a permanent
one within one year - a VERY short time for ICANN policy development.

The GNSO is starting an Expedited PDP which can complete faster than
a regular PDP. The ALAC is being given two Members in the this group.
We need to establish what our guiding principles are.

Please visit https://community.icann.org/x/_YlHBQ, read what others
think, and contribute your thoughts on what positions we should be taking
