As agreed at the lat meeting, Jason and I will reach out to the NRO EC (and RIR staff) to come up with some good timelines. We will take that back to the group for review and hopefully it will be a timeline that works for everyone!

Just to seek clarifications on the various positions here: 
Filiz, are you advocating that the operating procedures can be changed simply through consensus in the group? 
And Douglas, are you advocating that the operating procedures only can be changed through an 80% majority vote?

If so, do others care to comment on this?

All the best,
