Bernard Turcotte Staff Support:hello all
Thiago Jardim:Hi Bernard, hi everyone
David McAuley (RySG):i am 4154 number
Thomas Rickert, CCWG Co-Chair:Hi all!
David McAuley (RySG):Hello Thomas
Kavouss Arasteh:Dear Bernie,
Kavouss Arasteh:Is the June Schdule of CCWG sub groups including IOT already availavble?
Bernard Turcotte Staff Support:Yes would like me to email it to you?>
Paul Rosenzweig:I can't hear you Kavoouss
David McAuley (RySG):hard to hear Kavouss
Thomas Rickert, CCWG Co-Chair:Sorry I cannot understsand anything
Bernard Turcotte Staff Support:Kavouss you are very faint
Paul Rosenzweig:Your voice is mufffled.
Farzaneh Badii:yea, can't hear you very well Kavouss
Thomas Rickert, CCWG Co-Chair:no, not understandable for me
Thiago Jardim:It clearer now
Thiago Jardim:its clearer now, Kavouss.
Thomas Rickert, CCWG Co-Chair:Kavouss, maybe you disconnect and then reconnect
Farzaneh Badii:what is the issue? the manner of speech?
Farzaneh Badii:we have gone through 15 minutes of this meeting and have not covered any of the agenda items. I am specifically interested in the mandate discussion because I don't know why we are re-openning the issue
David McAuley (RySG):Thiago asked a fair question and Greg gave a fair answer – I tend to agree w/Greg and think the review of agenda was handled in a good manner
Thiago Jardim:Is our workplan set in stone?
Thiago Jardim:If not, the fact that participants saw a problem in coming to the mandate debate again should have been dealt with by the group
Paul Rosenzweig:Isn't that what we are doing right now Thiago?
Thiago Jardim:Paul, I don't think so.
avri doria:i would note that when the Staff Acct group fond itself queestioning its charter, it wnet back to the WS2 meeting to request clarification and change. we have been around this issue so many times without resolution that it may worth considering taking the issue up in the ull meeting.
Thiago Jardim:Avri, that's sensible.
Thiago Jardim:Though I feel there are several issues we agree are part of our mandate, I guess we should deal with them and then refer to the WS2 for guidance for those controversial cases
Thiago Jardim:You put it as if there were only these two options, Greg. EIther clarity or back to the WS2.
avri doria:an issue returning like that is often a sign of not reaching consensus
Thiago Jardim:But there is a question of timing too, I insist, we can move on, and bring to the plenary's attention those borderline cases
Paul McGrady:@Avri - agree. Absent consensus the status quo stands.
Paul Rosenzweig:With respect Thiago, that will not work. We are here having this discussion because the issue has been kicked down the road before. Constantly putting it off rather than resolving it is a diservice.
Thiago Jardim:Paul, and the status quo is that everything one can fit in as part of our mandate, as long as can fit in the ambiguities in there, are part of our mandate.
Paul McGrady:@Thiago, the status quo is California formation.
Paul Rosenzweig:Which Paul?
Thiago Jardim:The status quo of what is our mandate, I meant.
Paul Rosenzweig:Really? You are comfortable with a working group whose mandate is ambigous?
Thiago Jardim:No, I'm not. But not everything is ambiguous.
Paul Rosenzweig:No, it isn't. Sartre was wrong :-)
Thiago Jardim:Let us take up Jorge's proposal and do as he suggests
Thiago Jardim:I'll paste it here what he said, and what I said
Thiago Jardim:and what parminder said
Paul McGrady:and done, and done and done...
Paul Rosenzweig:and done and done.
Paul McGrady:I guess I don't get the argument that if you son't get your way then your issue was treated as out of scope. We talked about dismantling WS1 by moving ICANN out of California and there was no consensus to do so. That doesn't make it out of scope. That makes it considered and not adopted due to lack of consensus.
Brenda Brewer:waiting for the email, Greg
Thiago Jardim 2:Let me reproduce it for those who may have missed it: "As to the mandate and scope: please note my position that we need to stick to the mandate given to the CCWG ws2 by the chartering organizations. ... The Subgroup may reach ex-post i.e. case by case its own understanding v-a-v a given case where there would be a question of in/out scope, but I don't think we should lose time on developing an ex-ante position of the Subgroup in general terms."
Paul Rosenzweig:Thiago I have no idea what that means????
Thiago Jardim:Others do
Thiago Jardim:Excellent, Avri
Farzaneh Badii:yes .... I totally agree with Avri . we should look to solve the problems ICANN jurisdiction raise.
Paul McGrady:@Avri - no "good" or "bad" has been assigned to people based on hteir position. If we think WS1 is a "good" than leaving California will undo that good, but someone wanting to undo that good is not a bad person.
Thiago Jardim:We don't have to assume anything at this point, we have to identify the issues.
Paul Rosenzweig:Then the implication of Avi's view is that the report to WS2 begins with the assumption that we are staying, right?
Paul Rosenzweig:I suspect some people disagree with even making that assumption, but if everyone would agree to accept it, it can be a basis for moving forward
Farzaneh Badii:questionnaires were there to identify the issues.
David McAuley (RySG):As to the slide’s bottom line question I believe that the answer to the question is no – not in scope. I said as much in this email in September and continue in that opinion: http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/ws2-jurisdiction/2016-September/000099.html
Paul Rosenzweig:I agree with DAvid as to the answer to the question.
Paul Rosenzweig:Avri's proposal lets us assume the answer.
Bernard Turcotte Staff Support:Tijani h and
Bernard Turcotte Staff Support:tijani hand
David McAuley (RySG):Kavouss’s point about considering “impact” is a good one – that is the word in fact that appears in transition bylaw
Farzaneh Badii:I am just astonished! we even sent questionnaires our, we have now answers to the question of implication of ICANN jurisdiction instead of focussing on those answer and exploring how jurisdiction can affect ICANN accountability we are still talking about if mandate includes discussions about moving jurisdiction ...
Thiago Jardim:Farzaneh, I'm with you on that point
Thiago Jardim:Who's to blame for this i wonder
Thiago Jardim:point of order
David McAuley (RySG):we considered this question last year also
Farzaneh Badii:we totally did.
Farzaneh Badii:yes lets do as Avri suggests
Thiago Jardim:Avri, may I ask you to write your suggestion here in the chat?
Paul McGrady:+1 Thomas. Thank you for the clarity.
Paul Rosenzweig:+1 Thomas
Farzaneh Badii:+1 Thomas
avri doria:what not pursue the imunity question, at least a partial immunity question. isn't that one possible mitigation path?
Bernard Turcotte Staff Support:Time check - 10 minutes left
Paul McGrady:Agree Thomas. The formula is (Stay in California) + (look at remediation tools if any are needed)
Thomas Rickert, CCWG Co-Chair:Thiago, the main difference is the starting point of the assessment.
David McAuley (RySG):I think the immunity and related questions are for another forum – WS2 is meant to focus on following up on the accountability steps adopted in WS1
Paul Rosenzweig:+1 David
Farzaneh Badii:so we just consider impact of ICANN jurisdiction in this group David?
Farzaneh Badii:and then suggest have another group to consider remedy?
David McAuley (RySG):Farzi, in a sense yes but Annex 12 also asks us to look at dispute resolution aspects
Thiago Jardim:I think we should refer the issues to an independent panel for review
Greg Shatan:The queue is closed after Thiago.
David McAuley (RySG):Sorry Farzi - missed part 2 - I think immunity like questions won't be resolved in an ICANN group.
avri doria:need to drop off now. bye
Paul McGrady:+1 Paul R.
Farzaneh Badii:well no one came up with an alternative that could work better. and we have been discussing this for years now ...
Farzaneh Badii:goodbye everyone
Paul McGrady:+1 Greg. Good plan
Thiago Jardim:No rephrasing before seeing the different proposals raised in today's meeting
Thiago Jardim:Was I clear?
David McAuley (RySG):Thanks all, good bye
Bernard Turcotte Staff Support:bye all
Thiago Jardim:No AOB then?
