  Olga Cavalli - GAC Argentina: (11:01) i need a dial out!

  Olga Cavalli - GAC Argentina: (11:02) im in the call thanks

  arasteh: (11:02)  Mathieu

  arasteh: (11:03) Pls note thgat we should stop back and foirth on voting weight

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:03) Mathieu that was Sam

  arasteh: (11:03)  WE have discussed that many times

  Rosemary Fei (Adler & Colvin): (11:03) I'm in both Adobe and on the phone

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:03) Hel-lo.

  James Bladel: (11:03) Sorry for joining late.

  arasteh: (11:04)  29 weigthing was the one that we agree pending the announcement of three ACs wether they will or not join in future

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:04) ok Malcolm we will update

  Sabine Meyer (GAC - Germany): (11:06) hello Jordan! still alive or undead by now?

  arasteh: (11:06) YES THOMAS

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:06) I am not sure, Sabine

  Alan Greenberg: (11:06) Thomas: "Thank you very much Leon". Clearly co-chairs are interchangeable.

  arasteh: (11:07) I agree to that these individual experts appointed by ICANN SHALL not have the same weigth as those represented by the community and thus no blocking shouyld occur because of this no of weight

  Malcolm Hutty: (11:08) Sorry

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:08) Along with some cool noises.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:09) the ratio of 2 GNSO, 2 ccNSO, 2 ASO, 1 ALAC and liaison roles for the GAC, RSSAC and SSAC

  Sabine Meyer (GAC - Germany): (11:09) @Jordan all I hope for is this not being the afterlife

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:09) My colleague Keith, who cannot be on this call, made a suggestion to the list supporting 5x5, 2x2 for the next public comment period (with further discussion needed). The RySG supported this during public comment period #1.  This seems like a very sensible suggestion and I would like to note Keith’s point if we take a “sense of the room” tally. Keith and I are both long-standing participants in CCWG, and Keith is also ICG liaison.

  Carlos Raul: (11:12) hard to understand

  CLO: (11:12) I seriously doubt you wanna uld get sign off as a CO from ALAC under this  'suggestion' from Robyn

  arasteh: (11:15) Olga +1

  Pär Brumark (GAC Niue): (11:15) +1 Olga

  arasteh: (11:15) Alan+ 1

  CLO: (11:15) to say the LEAST. Alan

  James Bladel: (11:15) Just for my understanding:  We are proposing converting governments in to voting members of the Community?

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:15) yep.....

  Mathieu Weill, ccNSO, co-chair: (11:16) James : we are leaving the door open if they chose to join

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:16) also getting echo, adio issues, though minor ones

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:16) audio, that is

  Alan Greenberg: (11:16) James, we are not proposing that. It was proposedabout 9 months ago.

  Becky Burr: (11:16) @James - GAC has not reached consensus on whether or not it wants to vote

  jorge cancio (GAC): (11:16) the open door policy seems sensible for the time being

  arasteh: (11:16) We are treatingf governments equally like any other communitry in exercising their rights in regard with the ICANN Activities

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:17) Kavouss: yep we are.

  arasteh: (11:17) I do not thus understand the argument of SOME PEOPLE

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:18) Five each for ASO, ccNSO, GNSO, ALAC, GAC

  Hillary Jett: (11:18) All, a reminder, if you are not speaking can you please mute your lines?

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:18) Two each for RSSAC and SSAC

  arasteh: (11:18) Jordan + 1

  arasteh: (11:18) 5 for GAC

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:18) Thomas, Keith asked me to note his support for 5x5, 2x2

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:19) sixteen greens, two reds

  Avri Doria: (11:19) so it does not matter what model other than 5x5 2x2 we support. we got red cross.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:19) you're right, Avri

  Julie Hammer (SSAC): (11:19) SSAC can comment in response  to 2nd draft should they so choose.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:20) Note: In the board composition model, It is the ratio of 2 GNSO, 2 ccNSO, 2 ASO, 1 ALAC, and liaison roles for the GAC, RSSAC and SSAC that I'm seeking (rather than actual votes).  So it would probably make most sense for the number of actual votes to come out as 4 GNSO, 4 ccNSO, 4 ASO, 2 ALAC, and liaison roles for the GAC, RSSAC and SSAC.

  Alan Greenberg: (11:21) @Robin, for clarity, what does a Liaison mean in this context?

  arasteh: (11:21) Robin

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (11:21) how did the IRP doc circulate.  We have not seen

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:22) there are no liaison roles in a vote counting mechanism

  Sébastien (ALAC): (11:22) I would liek to talk about the executive summary

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:22) one minute please Holly and we will update our Wiki page

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:22) the liaising would have to happen through the ICANN community forum or such like

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:22) it was circulated to WP2. Lawyers are not on that list

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:22) it means to remain in an advisory role (rather than voting).

  Becky Burr: (11:24) apologies Holly - it is a mark up from the Initial Draft Report reflecting modified checklist

  Mathieu Weill, ccNSO, co-chair: (11:24) Please remove your ticks

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:24) This page is now updated with latest IRP doc

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:24) https://community.icann.org/x/pKs0Aw

  Mathieu Weill, ccNSO, co-chair: (11:24) and crosses

  Becky Burr: (11:24) can we put up the language Brenda

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:24) Don't random tick or cross.

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:24) Becky do you want IRP language? or Mission?

  Mathieu Weill, ccNSO, co-chair: (11:24) Mission

  arasteh: (11:24) pls put the text o/n the scr een

  Becky Burr: (11:24) Mission - that has the new language on HR

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:25) doe

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:25) done

  Becky Burr: (11:25) commitment 8

  Greg Shatan: (11:25) "Within its mission and in its operations, ICANN will be committed to respect internationally recognized fundamental human rights.”

  jorge cancio (GAC): (11:25) sounds like a starting point

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:26) I'm lost, what page is new language on

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:26) Page 4

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:26) thanks Mathieu

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (11:27) could someone put the relevant page on screen?

  arasteh: (11:27) Grec +1

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:27) It's an unsynced document @Holly. Page 4 2nd row, in red

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:28) thanks Grace

  arasteh: (11:28) PLS be mindful of those which invoked and incite some section of the society b

  arasteh: (11:28) I agree with Grec Proposal

  Carlos Raul: (11:29) hardly

  Samantha Eisner: (11:29) I register my same concern that I flagged earlier today - the Bylaws are a key governance document of the organization.  We should not be putting new langauge and new concepts into teh Bylaws at the last minute, particularly where we have agreement that we still need details.  There are high possibiliites of unintended consequences

  Becky Burr: (11:29) I think Greg's language is significantly broader than the language we discussed this morning

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:30) This proposal is for a public comment report.

  Farzaneh Badii: (11:30) be careful of what? we cannot mention human rights?

  Mary Wong: (11:30) Sorry, but pleaes clarify - the language in black and in red seems identical at the moment?

  Carlos Raul: (11:30) fundamental human rights, full stop is what I heard

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:31) Keith's proposal was: Within its mission and in its operations, ICANN will be committed to respect the fundamental human rights of the exercise of free expression and the free flow of information.

  Farzaneh Badii: (11:31) United Nations is not the world!

  Avri Doria: (11:31) not that we not single out free expression a free flow of information.

  Christopher Wilkinson: (11:31) @co-chairs: I withdraw my comment in the previous call in favour of an improvement. CW

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:31) @Greg - great drafting on this point!

  arasteh: (11:31) pls stop Grec proposal after fundamental rights and not futher expand this

  Samantha Eisner: (11:32) We have different understandings of what we mean by human rights, or how inserting language on human rights as a core value in the Bylaws could make ICANN susceptible to IRPs based on how people allege ICANN follows or does not follow a particular human rights

  arasteh: (11:33) Mathieu

  jorge cancio (GAC): (11:33) I think Greg's wording is a good basis for generating a good debate during the public comment period

  arasteh: (11:33) It is perfect. It is high level and covering the issue in a smooth and clear manner

  Greg Shatan: (11:33) Please note that IPC has continuing concerns even with this language.  But this is sufficient to allow IPC not to consider the highest level of dissent.

  Becky Burr: (11:34) I agree with Sam's concern about exposing ICANN too much

  Greg Shatan: (11:34) Someone violated James's right of free expression.

  arasteh: (11:34) Once again

  Samantha Eisner: (11:34) Got it, James

  Becky Burr: (11:34) "fundamental human rights" is very broad and each country decides how to apply

  arasteh: (11:35) Pls put full stop after " Rights"

  Avri Doria: (11:35) i would hope there was ntohing in the RA or the RAA that contravenes internationally agreed human rights, i.e. the Internationa bill of rights, udhr, iccpr & icescr.

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:35) I think ICANN would absolutely have to rexamine RA and RAA if this language is added because Board mus uphold on all its operations.

  James Bladel: (11:35) Thanks Sam.  I'm looking specifically at RAA Sec. 6.1 "Special Amendments"

  James Bladel: (11:36) @Avri - probably not. But neither would I want to open up those agreements to the universe of human rights issues.  Espeically if that is not our intention.

  arasteh: (11:36) We do not agree to put any thing after "Rights"

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:36) I take it sense of room will be red language on page 4 and Greg's language

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:37) Creep is intended vI think

  Samantha Eisner: (11:37) Avri, there is nothing in the agreement that contravenes such rights.  But I understand James' question to be more about does this open up the ability for human rights to serve as a basis for driving new provisions into the contracts that are already in force

  Greg Shatan: (11:37) Becky:  That's why "internationally recognized" was added.  We also considered "universally recognized." or a reference to International Treaties.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:37) there are a little over two months until we have to finalise the paper

  James Bladel: (11:38) Sam - thanks. That's it.

  arasteh: (11:38) Mthieu

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:38) can we ge tthe advice we need to know exactly how to do this properly without bad effects between now and then?

  arasteh: (11:38) If there is noi agreement

  Avri Doria: (11:38) i do not think there are any intended consequences.  and i stil think we need ws2 work to fully understand what the implicatosn are.  for example we have not yet committed to human right impact assesments..

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:38) alongside agreeing to put it in, in the current PC report?

  arasteh: (11:38)  bdelete paragreaph 8

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:38) U.S. Convention also respects fundamental rights of authors.

  Avri Doria: (11:38) i thinnk those IDRs, if there were any, would be seen as frivolous.

  Avri Doria: (11:39) i mean irps.

  arasteh: (11:39) Mathieu

  arasteh: (11:39) This a super sensitive and delicate issue

  arasteh: (11:39) Pls stop after " Rights"

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:40) so is it Keith's language or Greg's language we are voting on?

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:40) Sorry - I mean United Nations - U.N. Convention - not US Convention.  There is an article regardingk respecting rights of authors as a fundamental human right.

  Avri Doria: (11:40) they are both the same

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:40) yes

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:40) what if I can live with either Keith or Greg's language.

  Christopher Wilkinson: (11:40) Actually there is nothing in red on my screen. I believe that I am following the discussion notwithstandng. CW

  jorge cancio (GAC): (11:40) what is being voted?

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:40) so tick for the language

  Avri Doria: (11:40) black and red are the same

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:40) or red for no

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:41) yes, we have all noticed that

  jorge cancio (GAC): (11:41) let's vote for both separately or against each other

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:41) they are precisely identical

  Becky Burr: (11:41) sorry - the right and left are the same in this case.  It is proposed to add to Initial Draft Report language

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:41) I can't vote on this.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:41) i have 12 and 6

  Avri Doria: (11:42) i can accept both formulations as lnog as it is in the bylaws. the shorter one is better to my mind..

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:42) 12/7

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:42) anyone can use this function

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:42) we have a number of NCSG members who are not on this call but support human rights inclusion.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:42) "Attendee Status View"

  James Bladel: (11:42) Now it's 12/5

  Carlos Raul: (11:42) @robin but some are only participants

  Carlos Raul: (11:42) not members

  arasteh: (11:43) ThomaS

  arasteh: (11:43) mATHIEU

  arasteh: (11:43) lEON

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:43) 13/8

  arasteh: (11:43) we can not porceed with such divergence of view

  jorge villa (ASO): (11:43) As I can understand, we are voting for the writing not for the respect of human rights. That's right?

  Greg Shatan: (11:43) Why aren't we supporting any other human rights?

  arasteh: (11:43) There is NO CONSENSUS

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:43) can we vote on Greg's language?

  Carlos Raul: (11:44) can articipants also vote? or only members?

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:44) 14/8

  arasteh: (11:44)  Vote foir that

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:44) Please read Greg's draft again and vote on yhat

  Megan Richards 2: (11:45) could the lawyers check whether this wording limits the provisions that already exist in the articles of incorporation ?

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:46) this is an unclear vote call

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:46) Mathieu the however formulated language is hard to assess

  Olga Cavalli - GAC Argentina: (11:46) there is a window

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:46) the question is some language

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:46) "the text" needs definition in poll

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (11:46) isn't it?

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:47) Please conduct poll baSED on Greg's draft

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:47) agree with Thomas

  arasteh: (11:47)  Specific language is

  jorge villa (ASO): (11:48) @Rosemary I asked the same thing previously but no answer

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (11:48) Greg's suggested text was: "Within its mission and in its operations, ICANN will be committed to respect internationally recognized fundamental human rights.”

  arasteh: (11:48)  deletion of paragraPH 8

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:48) Thanks Steve!

  arasteh: (11:48) Thomas Rickert + 1

  Avri Doria: (11:48) ok ia mguess i am back to full dissent

  Grace Abuhamad: (11:48) We've clarified the question. please resubmit your poll answer

  Greg Shatan: (11:48) core commitments = Core Values of the ICANN Bylaws?

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:48) I'm also back to dissent if we are changing this based on this poll.

  Christopher Wilkinson: (11:48) I thought we were voting on the text that ends with "... human rights."

  CLO: (11:49) see the new poll language

  Avri Doria: (11:49) i hav to go teach now.  i cannot beleive you are iunwidning this.  i am very distressed and will file a dissenting view if we remove the langauge.

  jorge cancio (GAC): (11:49) +1 to robin

  Carlos Raul: (11:49) agree with Robin

  Christopher Wilkinson: (11:49) @Robin +1

  David McAuley (RySG): (11:50) Would it be feasible for pro and con members to get together and submit issue after proposal (as soon as possible) that would allow for a full statement about issue – proposal could state this is coming

  Carlos Raul: (11:50) this is very strange....

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:50) agree with Robin

  Avri Doria: (11:50) please add a plus one for me on language in the bylaws that includes human rights.  Greg's is better.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:50) we have the language before us.

  Carlos Raul: (11:50) I also have to leave in 10 minutes

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:50) why hold up the vote? 

  Carlos Raul: (11:50) support GREG

  arasteh: (11:50) Robiun

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:50) This is inappropriate.

  Avri Doria: (11:51) but i accept Keith's.  I will diesstn and recommend rejection of the proposal if we do not include human rights in the bylaws.

  James Bladel: (11:51) Agree with Robin - why wouldn't we proceed with Greg's language?

  Carlos Raul: (11:51) +1 @ Robin +1 @ james +1 Gregs text

  Carlos Raul: (11:51) why are we changing the flow?

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (11:51) We had a 16-4 vote this morning supporting Keith's compromise.  Greg came up with language to address the concerns of those 4.  This is unacceptable to game the process this way.

  James Bladel: (11:52) Who is gaming this? It just seems fragmented & confused.

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:52) agree with James and Robin and Avri as to  straw poll on Greg's language

  Carlos Raul: (11:52) +1 @ james

  arasteh: (11:52)  the alphabet ofd voting is that the amendment should be put t

  arasteh: (11:52) to vote

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (11:53) Lets give the co-chairs and staff a few minutes to frame the HR question, okay?  

  Sabine Meyer (GAC - Germany): (11:54) that was Holly's proposal :)

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (11:54) These powers are intended to provide recourse as part of an escalationpath in case of substantial disagreement between the Board and the community. They do notinterfere with the day-to-day operations of ICANN.  Suggest  change in last sentence to "They are not intended to interfere" ...

  James Bladel: (11:55) I have to drop at the top of hte hour.  Apologies.

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (11:55) +1 Sabine!

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (11:56) On page 2 it reads "These powers are intended to provide recourse as part of an escalationpath in case of substantial disagreement between the Board and the community. They do notinterfere with the day-to-day operations of ICANN.  Suggest  change in last sentence to "They are not intended to interfere" ...

  Sabine Meyer (GAC - Germany): (11:56) I had an issue with taht part too, but without providing a specific suggestion.

  Anne Aikman-Scalese: (11:58) sorry but i must board a plane.  good luck all! Anne

  Sabine Meyer (GAC - Germany): (11:58) have a safe flight!

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (12:00) Just lost audio

  FIONA ASONGA (ASO): (12:00) Kavous is so soft

  Greg Shatan: (12:01) That's a first....

  Carlos Raul: (12:03) :)

  Rosemary Fei (Adler & Colvin): (12:03) Extra "the" in the intro text, near end.

  Rosemary Fei (Adler & Colvin): (12:03) That's on Slide 2

  Roel Uleners (XPLANE): (12:05) WIll fix. Thank you, Rosemary

  Christopher Wilkinson: (12:10) A general point: 'significant concern' and the 'trigger' must be _MOTIVIATED_

  Julie Hammer (SSAC): (12:10) It would be helpful if Slide 13 made it clear that SO/ACs can join the discussion whether they have votes in the CMSM or not.

  CLO: (12:11) good point Julie

  Greg Shatan: (12:12) I see 7 ticks.

  Greg Shatan: (12:12) And no fleas.

  Greg Shatan: (12:12) Is there still a question whether the IRP meets the CWG's needs?

  Becky Burr: (12:13) needs to reflect ASO decision not to utilize IRP

  arasteh: (12:13) Thomas

  Hillary Jett: (12:13) @Greg, this slide has not been fully developed. We are still working on finishing it, we just wanted to have something to provide for today's call

  Greg Shatan: (12:13) Hillary:  Check.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:14) Tick

  arasteh: (12:14) PLS spell out CMSM when APPEARS FIRST

  Sébastien (ALAC): (12:15) the same for all the accronisms

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:15) Kavouss, I think all of that will happen in the proof reading :-)

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (12:15) Note: the quoted text at top is frm ICANN's present Articles of Incorporation, not the Bylaws.

  Becky Burr: (12:16) it is in the revised Mission, Commitments & Core Values Steve

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:16) So if we have no lingo here (here = core commitments), it's still in the founding document

  Becky Burr: (12:16) yes Jordan

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (12:16) both places, then.   Belts AND Suspenders.    Question is, does that include UN Declaration of Human Rights?  I think so

  Becky Burr: (12:17) yes, i've circulated Jack Goldsmith's analysis

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:17) thank you for interim work on framing questions

  Greg Shatan: (12:19) Nought crosses.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:19) it seems confusing to pose the question on Keith's language as a "negative" vote with "do you support removing" the language.

  Greg Shatan: (12:19) or should that be "now't crosses"?  WIth apologies to any Lancashiremen....

  Becky Burr: (12:21) that's percentages

  Greg Shatan: (12:21) This is why "survey experts" get paid the big bucks.

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:21) Keith, obviously, would support his language

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:21) and he is not on call but asked me to note that

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (12:22) @David would keith support Greg's language?

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:22) no it is not

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:22) these polls are not very transparent.  we can't see how our colleagues are voting.

  Becky Burr: (12:23) anyway this is not voting

  Farzaneh Badii: (12:23) because wevoted against the language not the value of hugman rights!

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (12:23) I think some people thought the first proposal was simply to delete language and not have any language

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:24) Why wasn't Keth's language stated in a positive way?  Given the language barriers, it seems easy for people to be confused and think a YES vote is for the language they see on the screen.

  Greg Shatan: (12:25) Maybe we should have a rank order poll?

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:25) I object to the framing of these polls and the weight that is being assigned.  Very arbitrary.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:25) I wish we could have tested which of the two languages was preferred, and then do an up or down - that preferred language or nothing

  Greg Shatan: (12:26) Agree with Jordan.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (12:26) i think that's what we did but it was unclear

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:26) That would have been fair, Jordan.  What we did was not fair.

  Greg Shatan: (12:26) Or we could use digital archery to make our decision.

  Alan Greenberg: (12:26) Every time a WG resorts to adobe polling, we seem to descend to chaos (just a historical perspective!)

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:26) I'm not voting on the 3rd item because these polls are rigged.

  Christopher Wilkinson: (12:27) The word 'towards' is unnecessarily weak.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:27) why are we voting in secret?  we should see how our representatives are voting.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:27) GOsh, I am glad we haven't used this polling before

  Becky Burr: (12:27) just shows the value of a consensus based approach

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (12:27) @Jordan, yep poll design is pretty critical

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (12:28) it's a fun feature of adobe connecct though !

  Malcolm Hutty: (12:28) If we're going to say something, I don't see how we're going to do better than Keith's option. It is the most clear and specific we are likely to get

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:28) I will file a minority report if human rights are being left out.

  Alan Greenberg: (12:28) @Jonathan, you have a curious definition of "fun"

  Greg Shatan: (12:29) My preferred option "won," and yet I'm unhappy.

  CLO: (12:29) it was to assist ease in counting and clarity of questions after the earlier debarcle @robyn but for the record I voted.  No , Yes , yes

  Greg Shatan: (12:29) I think this shows why voting and consensus are antithetical concepts.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:29) No one is happy with what just happened.

  Greg Shatan: (12:30) To achieve consensus, sometimes you have to accept a little "no".

  Sabine Meyer (GAC - Germany): (12:30) as the AC froze me out at the pivotal moment: how are we moving forward?

  Greg Shatan: (12:30) But in a vote, you will tend to move back to your corner.

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:30) Gre, wasn't outcome to go to option 3?

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:30) Greg, that is

  Avri Doria: (12:31) this is quite outrageous.

  jorge cancio (GAC): (12:31) Just to clarify: definition of consensus in the GAC Operating <principles stems from a 2011 reform.

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:31) We should get pro and con people together to work on a statement to follow proposal - and suggest way forward, happy to volunteer

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:31) The framing of these questions would be an interesting subject for "how to game the system" to kill human rights.

  Greg Shatan: (12:31) It was.  Which is what I personally support.  But I'm not sure it achieves our larger goals.

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:32) ok, I see

  jorge cancio (GAC): (12:32) before 2011 if my recollection is right, there was only a mention of consensu without any further definition

  CLO: (12:32) that is what it says

  CLO: (12:32) leave it to the GAC

  Becky Burr: (12:32) that's what this does Jorge

  Becky Burr: (12:32) however you define consensus in the GAC

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (12:33) the gac can do whatever it wants

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (12:33) HR supporters were not able to be on this call and HR is out of the report?  What a rigged system.

  Mary Wong: (12:33) The GAC Operating Principles were last amended in October 2011, at the Dakar meeting.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:33) it is NOT an issue of GAC. It is about what ICANN has to do in response to GAC.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (12:33) it's not Steve, it's a significant majority of the ccwg

  Greg Shatan: (12:33) GAC can vote as it wants.  But it shouldn't expect the Board to give the same level of deference to a majority vote as to current consensus.

  CLO: (12:33) we have a ST- WP

  jorge cancio (GAC): (12:33) just giving some background

  Pär Brumark (GAC Niue): (12:34) +1 Olga

  Becky Burr: (12:34) yes, the GAC has full authority to make decisions however it likes

  Suzanne Radell (GAC): (12:35) The U.S. does not interpet this stress test as dictating to the GAC; rather, it is directed to the Board's response to less than consensus GAC advice.  The long standing practice of the GAC has been consensus-based public policy advice, which was formalizedin response to the ATRT recommendation that the GAC clearly state how it arrives at its policy advice

  CLO: (12:35)  exactly Suzanne

  Becky Burr: (12:35) all other groups operate by consensus, in any case

  Philip Corwin: (12:35) This is not about interfering with GAC internal procedures. It is about what deference the Board would owe to GAC advice rendered by mere majority vote. Failing to address this effectively opens up the possibility of governmental dominance of ICANN in the future.

  Greg Shatan: (12:36) On HR, we should have voted for what we can live with, not for what we wanted.

  jorge cancio (GAC): (12:38) Just to state once again that GAC is still trying to reach a common position on this topic

  CLO: (12:38) suggest a rephrase

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (12:38) @Olga -- can you suggest a phrase that you would prefer?

  Becky Burr: (12:38) yes greg, although i'm not sure we would have come out in a different place

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:38) "It is noted that during a discussion in finalising this Report, representatieves from....

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (12:38) We were attempting to note your Dissent, which was what I thought you asked for this morning

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:38) The three named countries "among others"?

  Greg Shatan: (12:39) Eliminating the stress test itself means not acknowledging the issue.

  arasteh: (12:39) Olga +1

  Becky Burr: (12:39) this has no impact on how the GAC does its work

  CLO: (12:39) AT-18 can not just suddenly be deleted ans we have had that clear from NTIA in Paris

  CLO: (12:40) AT should read ST

  CLO: (12:40) exactly Jordan

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (12:40) +1 Jordan

  Becky Burr: (12:40) +1 Jordan

  Malcolm Hutty: (12:41) We cannot remove any stress tests: stress tests are our tool for understanding what others will think. Removing them does not persuade anyone, it just blinds us to the fact that we will not gain consensus support from the wider community

  CLO: (12:41) exactly Malcolm

  Greg Shatan: (12:41) What if we change the word "The" at the beginning of j. to "All".?

  Becky Burr: (12:42) correct, and if we remove this language we fail stress test 18

  CLO: (12:42) yup

  Malcolm Hutty: (12:42) well said Jordan

  Megan Richards: (12:42) is there another way of looking at this? that is by indicating different considerations by the ICANN board of advice from GAC depending on whether advice is consensus, simple majority or large majority. This becomes quite complicated of course but is it a way out ?

  jorge cancio (GAC): (12:42) I dn't think we are talking about binary options

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:43) The Board will still be obliged to take the advice of the GAC into account

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:43) on public policy matters

  Sabine Meyer (GAC - Germany): (12:43) "duly" might be the magic word here.

  Finn Petersen, GAC - DK: (12:43) Jordan - very clear

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (12:43) Glad to delete the last 2 lines, Kavous.   Agree to your text too

  Malcolm Hutty: (12:43) @megan: I had previously suggested text that would implement that, but it was not taken up

  Christopher Wilkinson: (12:43) What is perceived is that this endorses a new option on the lpart of the ICANN Board, to pick and choose as to which GAC advice to act upon or not. CW

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:43) no Christopher: it is precisely the opposite

  Malcolm Hutty: (12:44) no it does not CW.

  CLO: (12:44) I'm OK with that proposed language change Karvous

  Christopher Wilkinson: (12:44) @jordan. then it is not necessary to say anythibng.

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (12:44) From the beginning of ICANN through the present, the GAC has used a strong consensus rule for its decisions, “consensus is understood to mean the practice of adopting decisions by general agreement in the absence of any formal objection.” The proposed bylaws change recognizes that GAC may wish to consider, if necessary, to amend its consensus rule to something less than “in the absence of any formal objection” while still requiring ICANN to try “to find a mutually acceptable solution.”

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:44) the issue is the GAC picking and choosing its methods.

  Becky Burr: (12:44) No Christopher - it prevents the non-consensus view of the GAC from blocking through delay

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:44) not ICANN.

  Grace Abuhamad: (12:44) it has not been captured. Kavouss -- can you type into chat

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:44) GAC should be free to choose its working methods

  jorge cancio (GAC): (12:44) A place-holder would help, indicating that GAC is still working on this issue

  Becky Burr: (12:45) which is why it is an important stress test to meet the USG requirements

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:45) but it should not be free to choose to move the goalposts in terms of when ICANN is obliged to "find a mutually acceptable solution."

  CLO: (12:45) yes.  to accept the text from Kavous as a friendly amendment

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (12:46) Here is what I have from Kavous:  The proposed bylaws change recognizes that GAC may wish to consider, if necessary, to amend its consensus rule to something less than “in the absence of any formal objection” while still requiring ICANN to try “to find a mutually acceptable solution.”

  Becky Burr: (12:46) i don't know which lines he proposes to delete

  Malcolm Hutty: (12:46) no I

  CLO: (12:46) no de

  Malcolm Hutty: (12:46) nor I

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:46) this is all about **protecting the status quo** for the whole ICANN community, **without** constraining GAC processes or decision-making in any way **at all**.

  arasteh: (12:46) Grec

  arasteh: (12:46)  NO

  arasteh: (12:46)  It is not

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (12:46) Kavous wanst to delete the last two lines on page 2.   No problem.  That was added because I thought AR, FR, and BR wanted their dissent noted

  Christopher Wilkinson: (12:47) Lowered hand. for now.

  CLO: (12:47) demo delett other than the last 2 lines in yellow. we all agreed to delete there are a few clarification words added as captured in the chat

  Becky Burr: (12:47) that's fine, but doesn't solve the real problem

  Malcolm Hutty: (12:47) So AR, BR, FR want to dissent: IR wants to remove notice of that dissent???

  jorge cancio (GAC): (12:48) A factual statement that GAC is still considering this would be necessary to keep the public informed

  Suzanne Radell (GAC): (12:48) May I ask that the amended language be more clearly identified? I don't have scroll capabilities so can't tell what we're being asked to agree to

  Malcolm Hutty: (12:48) And they wonder why we struggle with GAC advice!!

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:49) Steve said: Here is what I have from Kavous:  The proposed bylaws change recognizes that GAC may wish to consider, if necessary, to amend its consensus rule to something less than “in the absence of any formal objection” while still requiring ICANN to try “to find a mutually acceptable solution.”

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:49) it's a change to the explanatory language around the ST changes, don't have a para ref sorry

  Brenda Brewer: (12:49) i will check on it...stand by

  CLO: (12:50) so added is "may wish to consider, if necessary..."

  Christopher Wilkinson: (12:52) Thankyou everyone. Leaving the call. now. Shall post some additional comments as requested. CW

  Greg Shatan: (12:53) It's always 4 o'clock somewhere.

  Farzaneh Badii: (12:54) well it is everyone's time ...

  Farzaneh Badii: (12:54) ture that Greg!

  CLO: (12:54) we work until its finished. and its early herein AU and NZ as well

  Farzaneh Badii: (12:54) *true

  arasteh: (12:55) I also thank Malcolm

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:55) I think Kavouss has the worst possible time for this meeting - a 2-4am window is very unpleasant

  arasteh: (12:55) tks JordaN

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:56) Agree Jordan, thank you Kavouss on tough time for call

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:56) why don't we go to what Becky put out on the list?

  Rosemary Fei (Adler & Colvin): (12:57) Please note that legal counsel have not seen this text before the call, and we would like the opportunity to review and comment on this.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (12:57) (to review, i mean)

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:59) noon would be 1600 utc i think

  David McAuley (RySG): (12:59) noonin DC

  Becky Burr: (12:59) no worries Malcolm, that's the intent

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (13:00) please let us know which draft we should review -- wiolll someone send it to us for legal review?

  Greg Shatan: (13:00) Malcolm's language is new to me (and I'm in WP2).  It may have been posted recently but I haven't seen it yet.  I get the idea of what it's trying to achieve but I'm not sure I can get behind the language itself.

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:01) I’d like to reiterate a proposal made a few minutes ago. Could the proposal state that a reference to HR was discussed but not agreed. Certain members and participants of CCWG on both sides of the issue as discussed have agreed to draft a statement of the issue as discussed and suggest ways forward. This document should be produced shortly (meaning in WS1) and will be announced upon its release.

  Mathieu Weill, ccNSO, co-chair: (13:01) @Holly: start with Malcolm's please

  Rosemary Fei (Adler & Colvin): (13:02) Is that available somewhere we have access to?

  Malcolm Hutty: (13:03) @Greg Yes: but it is close. The text we have seen is the Draft Bylaws text 28 July IRP BB compilation. This needs to implement that

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (13:03) could someone please send what is on the screen to us if that is the relevant copy to review?  we will review right away and get back to you our comments this evening.

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:03) Agree with Thomas, this has been an honest but difficult discussion and looking for a good way forward is good

  Grace Abuhamad: (13:03) Holly, Rosemary -- please wait for instructions from the Chairs on which documents to review. This needs new certification request

  Rosemary Fei (Adler & Colvin): (13:04) Great.  Thanks, Grace.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:06) I would be much happier to go with the language that was agreed on the last call (the so-called Keith language) than to stick with the weird tripartite polling we did before.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:07) so would I, Jordan.

  Farzaneh Badii: (13:07) so would I

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:07) I just lost Kavouss?

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:07) loat audio

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:07) oh, it was an Adobe hang

  Greg Shatan: (13:08) Jordan, I have real issues with the Keith language.

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:09) Agree @Jordan, @Robin

  Farzaneh Badii: (13:09) we cannot push for rushing to remove human rights either !

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:09) Greg, I know.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:09) It was NOT a vote

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:09) We were close to finding agreement on langauge - why don't we continue with that effort?

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:09) Well put CLO on hours

  CLO: (13:12) happy to do so Robyn

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:13) it's really two simple questions. 1. do you support adding HR language to the bylaws. If the consensus is yes, then 2. do you support Keith's language or Greg's?

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:13) And of course, it's a question of weighing the objections that will result in either case.

  CLO: (13:14) let's run with that now Jonathan as a temperature taking POLL

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:15) I like that framing better, but most of the HR supporters are not on this call.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:15) we already know the answer to 1

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:15) 16/4 in the last call and one of our earlier polls answered it

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:15) so we could just do 2

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:16) Agreed, Jordan.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:16) not sure that's true, Jordan. that was a "would you support" type question. still about the compromise not the question

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:16) beter to ask both]

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:17) that was a "would you live with" construction this morning

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:17) green ticks for somthing about HR

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:18) as the first question

  Grace Abuhamad: (13:18) Sorry @Thomas!

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:18) can we just look at what we might get to use ticks on now, maybe?

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:18) the two questions of Zuck?

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:19) Alan, Jordan's talking about the previous call

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:19) yes!

  CLO: (13:19) exactly Alan

  Greg Shatan: (13:19) "Could you live with" and "Do you support" are two different types of questions....

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:19) I thought Thomas was talking about the call earlier today.

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:19) so options would be silence, Greg, Keith, or abstain

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:19) And keep in mind that no language is minority report from Robin, Greg's language is inline objection

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:19) fro IPC

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:19) there are two tickcrosses to take

  Sébastien (ALAC): (13:20) Do an online stawpool

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:21) why can we not simply do it now to see where we are thinking, and then do the list thing as well

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:21) just so people can see each other's preferences?

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:21) a transparent online poll

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:22) the problem with that is that it doesn't reflect reality. that prevents the IPC from registering a vote against any language

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:22) while still suggesting a compromise

  Greg Shatan: (13:22) I suggest a rank order poll or a poll where each position has 3 answers:  support, can live with, violently object....

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:23) rank order doesn't serve you either Greg. need tdo be too parts

  Avri Doria: (13:23) since i cannot hear as i am giving a class, can i ask tat any poll be written in the chat.

  Greg Shatan: (13:23) 15 minutes?  Moi?

  CLO: (13:23) no one has spoken for 15 mins

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:23) yes, Greg, because I have positive thoughts about both the Greg and Keith language.

  Avri Doria: (13:24) i can also support both sets of langauge, though i do favor Greg's

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:24) that is where I am also, Avri.

  arasteh: (13:24) pls put my proposal to temperature meaSUREMENT

  arasteh: (13:25) Question to be put to temperature measurement

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:26) just to see what we think, together

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:26) or instead of polls, those of us who want to work on a compromise, could just work on it. (or in addition).

  arasteh: (13:26)  Do you agree that there should be a high level refernce to Human Rights in the Bylaews indicating that the detials of the process would be worked out in ws2s

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:26) I suggest the first quetion is -- should we include human rights language in this report

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:26) yes or no

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:26) as per Zuck

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:27) but most of the HR supporters are not on this call

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:27) the second question: if including language do you prefer Keith's as per the previous call, or Greg's alternative

  Becky Burr: (13:27) matthew and ed, robin?

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:27) right and James Gannan

  arasteh: (13:28) PLS PUT MY SUGGESTION TO VOTE

  Sébastien (ALAC): (13:28) In this report or in the bylaws?

  Greg Shatan: (13:28) Jordan, by "in this report" do you mean "In the Bylaws" or "in any way at all"?

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:28) in the bylaws

  Becky Burr: (13:28) if we are that close we have no consensus

  arasteh: (13:28) THE QUESTION PROPOSED BY JORDAN IS MISSLEADING

  arasteh: (13:28)  Every body is in favour of HR

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:29) the question is the question.

  Greg Shatan: (13:29) If we mean in the bylaws, let's say it.  That is not the only way we can refer to Human RIghts in this report.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:29) we are talking about the Core Value 8

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:29) or whatever part of the proposed report we were looking at before.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:29) we are requesting a committment to fundamental human rights in bylaws in WS1.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:29) +1 Robin

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:29) which was for the Mission, Values and Commitments sections of the bylaws.

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:30) Kavouss, though, with respect, this poll is being set up where Q1 is in view of two alternatives to follow -

  Greg Shatan: (13:30) Bylaws are not a place to leave "notes to self" for further work.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:30) +1 Greg

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:30) we aren't doing notes

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:30) the second question chooses the language

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:30) agree @Jordan, Question 1 being constructed with Q2 in mind

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:31) Plus Keith is not on this call to vote for his language.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:31) Q1 is whether to include the language IN THE SAME PLACE>

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:31) or not.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:31) Q2 is WHICH LANGUAGE.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:31) +1 Jordan

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:31) @Robin, we can give David two votes

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:31) this is not complicated

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:32) it really isn't

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:32) @Jonathan, David?

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:32) Keith did ask me to note his language and his support for it

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:32) from Verisign

  Suzanne Radell (GAC): (13:32) As a non-lawyer, this idea may be a non-starter, but I'm wondering if there could be a footnote or comment linked to the existing references in the core mission to "in conformity with relevant principles of international law, international conventions" could not provide the basis for the indication that detailed work will be undertaken on HR in work stream 2?

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:32) right - sorry

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:33) can we PLEASE IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS GOOD

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:33) Use the ticks and see what we think!

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:33) and then keep discussing what it means after we know what we think!

  Olga Cavalli - GAC Argentina: (13:33) dear all, I must leave the call  to attend other meeting, thanks to all and looking forward for new versions of the document

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:33) ciao Olga

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:34) Yes they will answer it anyway

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:34) NO! you can answer no to the first question and still have a preference for the second one

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:34) good god no that is a terrible idea Alan

  CLO: (13:34) fine with that Alan

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:34) it forces people who don'twant it in to choose their least bad option

  Greg Shatan: (13:35) Agree with JZ and JC...

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:35) can we please take the temperature on the two questions.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:36) they were poorly worded, that's all. it's okay. This is easy. Honest.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:36) 1. Do you want to see some human rights language in that box with an 8 and with red text.

  arasteh: (13:36) PLS PUT MY SUGGESTION TO TEMPERATURE MEASURING

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:36) 2. do you prefer what is written there, or do you prefer Greg's alternative

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:36) can we please use our ticks on these two questions

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:36) please

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:36) please

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:37) 2. do you prefer what is written there suggested by Keith, or do you prefer Greg's alternative

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:37) it was NOT asked

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:37) recap the first

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:37) and let's go on with it please

  arasteh: (13:37) The issue is important and we should not rush to reply to that fully in WS1

  Avri Doria: (13:37) explcitly what is the Q?

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:38) I just typed them here, Avri.

  arasteh: (13:38) Deat Mathieu

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:38) and let's work out what they mean last time

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:38) no

  arasteh: (13:38) I made a firm and formal proipoosal

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:38) Tijani

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:38) was speaking

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:38) Q1. Do you support an explicit reference to human rights be added to the bylaws

  arasteh: (13:38) I sincerely request you to put iot to temp MNeasu

  Avri Doria: (13:38) k the 1 and 2.  so ticking on 1 first?

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:38) my HR colleauges could not make this call.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:38) WE CANNOT HAVE ONE QUESTION

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:38) Q2...only if Q1 passes. Do you prefere Keith or Greg's language

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:39) no Jonathan

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:39) we need to share our views about both questions.

  arasteh: (13:39)  I do not agree with such question

  arasteh: (13:39) bPLS PUT MINE INTO VOTE

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:39) ok Jordan, you can ask "if we do, which do you prefer"

  arasteh: (13:39)  I object tyo the process in rejecting a formalmproposal

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:40) I like that formulation, Jonathan.

  Julie Hammer (SSAC): (13:40) Isn't second question...do we do it in WS1 or in WS2/

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:40) everyone else stop typing

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:40) 1. Do you want to see some human rights language in that box with an 8 and with red text.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:40) 2. do you prefer what is written there suggested by Keith, or do you prefer Greg's alternative

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:40) Those participants not on this call will want to weigh in on the email list.

  Alan Greenberg: (13:40) Despite the desire to have a "no question" proposal going out for comment. Perhaps the HR issue *IS* one we need to simply ask in the PC.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:40) yes

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:40) and they should

  Avri Doria: (13:41) are we still on Q1?

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:41) in the bylaws in other words

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:41) he is reading the questions out

  arasteh: (13:41) PLS PUT MY PORIOPOSAL

  CLO: (13:41) this IS a temp taking Kavous

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:42) and recalling some ticks from people who are no longer here

  Izumi Okutani (ASO): (13:42) May I confirm, as metnioned in teh chat ath the first answer could be no but still repond to the second with preference?

  Samantha Eisner: (13:42) Please note that my objection is not because of any objection to human rights, but for the governance issues I've raised before

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:42) 10 in favour, 4 against

  Mathieu Weill, ccNSO, co-chair: (13:42) Yes Izumi

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:42) YES

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:42) these are two separate questions

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:43) 11/5

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:43) with a red cross from Tijani and a green tick from Keith as communicated by David

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:43) can we move on to the second question

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:43) 2. do you prefer what is written there suggested by Keith, or do you prefer Greg's alternative

  Greg Shatan: (13:43) I saw 7 red crosses including Tijani

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:43) lost audio

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:44) lost audio for a bit

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:44) lost audio

  Greg Shatan: (13:44) Not 5.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:44) green = Keith, red = Greg

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:44) 2. do you prefer what is written there suggested by Keith, or do you prefer Greg's alternative

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:44) Green for Keith, on the screen; Red for Greg, as discussed.

  Greg Shatan: (13:44) rabbits and tortoises?

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:45) Keith's proposal is written in red, maybe it should be red.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:45) Keith as per the red text on the screen

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:45) it is a preference

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:45) NO

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:45) you already voted on that Kavous

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:45) for goodness sakes

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:45) of coure we need to vote on this

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:46) we can do what we want in terms of trying to hear what it is we want

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:46) please continue, co-chairs

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:46) its not a vote.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:46) we are trying to test our preference

  Greg Shatan: (13:46) If you don't want either, you should still vote here, on a lesser of two evils.

  Greg Shatan: (13:46) basis.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:46) right, testing preference of those on this call.

  Greg Shatan: (13:46) I don't find it odd to decide between two alternatives.

  Greg Shatan: (13:46) I want chocolate ice cream.

  Greg Shatan: (13:46) ANd I want vanilla ice cream.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:46) it seems pretty logical to

  Greg Shatan: (13:47) But I will choose chocolate every time, as between the two.

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:47) I agree preference betwenn two alternatives can be tested

  CLO: (13:47) you could use yellow to abstain

  Mathieu Weill, ccNSO, co-chair: (13:47) This is not a vote

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:47) it is - if there was something in the box - Green for the text on screen, red for Greg's atlernative (which doesn't speciy)

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:48) observers don't generally vote anyway - shouldn't count them as no votes

  Malcolm Hutty: (13:48) evenly split

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:48) Keith would also favor his language

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:48) this isn't about whether something is in or out

  Steve DelBianco [GNSO - CSG]: (13:48) RIgt, but youare voting for Keith, right?

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:49) what was the final of that poll?

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:49) 8 for what is on screen, 11 for Greg's alternative

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:49) was my count

  Malcolm Hutty: (13:49) 8+Keith for one, 11 for the other, that's pretty evenly split

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:49) Malcolm has it

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:49) yup

  Izumi Okutani (ASO): (13:50) In responding to the notes I was a little late  I showed preference for Greg's

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:50) i agree that count

  Avri Doria: (13:50) i voted late

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:50) and my colleagues who feel strongly on this issue were not on this call

  Greg Shatan: (13:50) 11/19 = 57.9%

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:50) No aplogy needed - tough discussion but a good one.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:50) Izumi voted after the call was made, I think.

  Farzaneh Badii: (13:50) Yes I agree with Robin. some of our members have not been on this call.

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:51) We need to move on.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:51) baring in mind that Keith's language results in a full minority report from IPC but Gre'gs language results only an inline objection and no minority report from Avri, I believe

  Greg Shatan: (13:52) I'll vote on anything....

  CLO: (13:52) what suppoetbdidnyour proposal get Kavous

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:52) Anchovies or pepporoni?

  Greg Shatan: (13:52) BTW I think we have violated Article 24 of the UNDHR: "Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay."

  Becky Burr: (13:52) we haven't tested Greg's language with registries but i think that would be very problematic

  Avri Doria: (13:53) correct as long as repsect for fundamental hr is in the bylaw, i have no minority report to file.

  Greg Shatan: (13:53) Anchovies if I'm alone, pepperoni if I'm sharing.  Because nobody but me seems to like anchovies.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:53) how inclusive of you Greg

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:53) which is what we will do if the HR language is voted down altogether

  Sabine Meyer: (13:53) Greg, that statement holds up.

  Avri Doria: (13:53) i love anchovies, especailyl with capers.

  Becky Burr: (13:53) i like anchovies, but not on pizza

  Greg Shatan: (13:54) Would this reference to the details being in WS2 be in the Bylaw itself?

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:54) you're weird Becky

  Becky Burr: (13:54) that goes without saying Jonathan

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (13:54) you can do a lamb leg roast with garlic and rosemary and adding a bit of anchovies works.

  Grace Abuhamad: (13:54) Would you like to have a high level reference to Human Rights in the Bylaws?

  CLO: (13:54) and Greg several of us have another 2 hrs call   when this finishes

  arasteh: (13:55) Do you agree that we mention the recongnition of the human rights in the bylaws at ws1 while the detayls would be worked out in ws2

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:55) we can have that in the report but probablhy not in the bylaws

  Greg Shatan: (13:55) I just have a job I have neglected for most of the day...

  CLO: (13:55) oh my day job is still yet to start

  Farzaneh Badii: (13:55) me too

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:56) abstain

  CLO: (13:56) abstain

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:56) that's my preference over either Keith or Greg's language.

  Brenda Brewer: (13:56) Tijani's line has disconnected

  Izumi Okutani (ASO): (13:57) sorry I have to go for another call - will follow up by e-mail

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (13:57) I hope my HR colleagues that are not on this call will have a chance to weigh in when they hear about the poll's existance.

  Alan Greenberg: (13:57) I have to leave now to chair another meeting.

  Brenda Brewer: (13:57) he is not answering the call back

  Becky Burr: (13:57) my problem is that it depends on what the high level reference is

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:57) yes Becky, it's gotten muddied again

  Greg Shatan: (13:57) What would a high level reference look like?

  Avri Doria: (13:57) i would have neglected mine, but a classroom of students is hard to avoid.

  David McAuley (RySG): (13:57) agreed @Becky

  Rosemary Fei (Adler & Colvin): (13:58) As noted earlier,  in the interests of  the quality of the end product, legal counsel would like the opportunity to review the full IRP language..

  jorge cancio (GAC): (13:58) @grace: my cross was an old cross. I did not vote on kavous' proposal

  Greg Shatan: (13:58) Class, today we will be reading on our own.

  Jonathan Zuck (IPC): (13:58) preference order: 1. no reference, 2. high level reference, 3. greg's langunage, 4. Keither's language

  CLO: (13:59) Tijani and Alan have had to leave for our next call I will stay here and skype with them

  Greg Shatan: (13:59) I have no idea what a high level reference is.  I thought mine was about as high level as one can get and actually have operative language in the Bylaws themselves.

  jorge cancio (GAC): (13:59) @grace/staff: please correct the notes accordingly

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (14:00) Dear Co-Chars, Please certify review of the IRP section to us so we can undertake a review.

  Grace Abuhamad: (14:00) Notes are correct

  Grace Abuhamad: (14:00) @holly you will receive an email

  Robin Gross [GNSO - NCSG]: (14:00) if we don't get the high level committment to fundamental HR in WS1, we will file a minority report, so we'll need to know the outcome of that issue in time to submit a report, if needed.

  jorge cancio (GAC): (14:00) @grace: my cross was an old cross. I did not vote on kavous' proposal

  Grace Abuhamad: (14:00) ok

  Greg Shatan: (14:00) Leon owes you one for not being on this call....

  Mathieu Weill, ccNSO, co-chair: (14:01) We missed him !

  Grace Abuhamad: (14:01) Thank you Jorge. Apologies for the error

  Sébastien (ALAC): (14:01) We need a final call from the whole group?

  Greg Shatan: (14:01) "ICANN has a high level commitment to human rights."?

  jorge cancio (GAC): (14:02) @grace: thanks and apologies for not clearing my cross...

  Martin Boyle, Nominet: (14:03) Mathieu +1

  David McAuley (RySG): (14:03) aggree speacial thanks to staff and to chairs, rapporteirs - there have been intensive discussions

  David McAuley (RySG): (14:05) +100 Kavouss

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (14:05) it has been tiring

  Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (14:05) but strangely satisfying

  Mathieu Weill, ccNSO, co-chair: (14:05) Appreciated Kavouss. Very rough experience but rewarding to work with such a group

  David McAuley (RySG): (14:06) Jordan - is that application for WS2

  Holly Gregory (sidley): (14:06) Thank you Kavouss, appreciated.
