I think that Danny has raised an excellent point and I would like to hear from staff on this issue.

Subject: [NA-Discuss] Length of At-Large Comment Periods

As of late, I have noticed that when a Call for Comments is issued to the at-large community, the time-frame for providing comments in response to the Call is far from sufficient.  Below I have listed the last eight Call for Comment cycles (announcement dates and comment closure dates are shown); the available time for comments can at best be described as a few days.  A few days is simply not enough time for most individuals, and I can't imagine that organizational entities would take any comfort in the present arrangement.  It would be appreciated if something could be done to improve the present situation.
