Hi Alissa -

First, with apologies, I am not able to attend today's call as I'm starting a previously scheduled vacation in a couple of hours.

On the schedule below, it looks generally workable.  I am traveling on internationally on the 12th, so I'll coordinate with Josh and Jorge on addressing the comments though there will be windows of time that I'll be out of pocket.

I've already flagged internally that there might be a need for a Board meeting between the 22nd and 26th to meet the signing schedule below, so those logistics are now in ICANN's court.

Subject: [Iana-ipr] Proposed timeline and process for IPR comments

I put together the following proposed timeline for the handling of the IANA IPR comments:


Sept 12 - Public comment period ends

Sept 14 - Jorge/Sam/Josh produce initial assessment of how to address comments received and redlined agreements (if appropriate). Lawyers to share those on iana-ipr at nro.net<mailto:iana-ipr at nro.net>.

Sept 15-16 - Communities discuss comment assessment and redlines internally and raise issues for group discussion on iana-ipr at nro.net<mailto:iana-ipr at nro.net>.

Sept 19 - IANA IPR group call (2 hours) to discuss comment assessment and redlines.

Sept 21 - IANA IPR group call to finalize agreements, if not already finalized.

Sept 22 - IETF Trust meets to approve signing
             Communities approve signing

Sept ?? - ICANN Board meeting to approve signing (not sure if Board meeting is required, but current schedule shows a regular Board meeting on Sept 17, which is too early)

Week of Sept 26 - Agreements signed
     CCG members announced


Obviously some of this depends on the comments we receive. So far he have received just one, a supportive comment from the NRO. [1] But in any event the suggestion is that since the legal folks did so well working through various compromises before the public comment period, that we would ask them to produce the initial assessment of the public comments. This timeline also gives us a bit of a buffer at the end in case things slip by a day or two.

I think it would be good to get rough agreement around the timeline because it implies that the various parties will need to have their own processes for final sign-off, and those need to be scheduled in advance. I will put this on our agenda for tomorrow.
