  • Continuation of Discussion and Assignment of STATUS for the Recommendations FROM  Rec 5...  (Brief Review only using the Full TF Table as well as record (later) on the 'Recs Wiki pages' listed under Resources below)

Note (to Wiki page and Table) any required next steps for completion where required and discussion of next steps and Action Items  for next meeting with regards to each.  (this task will possibly run over several meetings).

Resources: the AII-TF will use existing Work Team pages dedicated to each of the At-Large Improvements Review 13 recommendations (as endorsed by the ICANN Board in June 2009). (click links to parent Wiki pages *** below); Each page contains a summary of the specific work underway in the implementation of that recommendation. Specifically, the following is listed:

  • A summary of the recommendation itself (as stated in the Final Report);
  • A summary of the steps or tasks planned for implementing the recommendation; and
  • The Status COMPLETED / ONGOING/ PENDING / REDUNDANT  or a Target Completion DATE for the recommendation as a whole to be implemented.

In addition, on these pages, visitors can leave comments regarding the implementation of any one of the recommendations.

Finally, each of these pages will link, as needed, to tailored pages that each work team can use in conducting its actual ongoing implementation work (for example, some will link to pages used to collect specific information requested from the At-Large community).
