[council] Draft agenda for teleconference 14 Nov 2002

Hello All,

I propose the following agenda for the next names council teleconference to
be held on Thursday 14 November 2002.

Bruce Tonkin

1. Approval of agenda

2. Summary of last meetings

3. Issues arising from the Names Council meeting on 29 October 2002

3.1 Briefing by Louis Touton on implementation of policies (30 mins).
For background see:
Questions of clarification include the difference between "policy" and
"administrative detail", and the level of guidance ICANN staff require to
implement a "policy" developed via consensus.  For example should a policy
state that "there should be a maximum period for a particular action", or
should the policy state "the maximum period for an action is 3 days".
Note the current registry contracts have many examples of specific
administrative detail.

4. UDRP update - report from J.Scott Evans on next steps  (15 mins)

5. New TLD process - discuss Stuart Lynn proposal  (30 mins)

these discussions.
Possible process:

administration costs)

funding from constituencies to fund any shortfalls from ICANN
