Ballot question: "Is this charter ready for external review?"
The Secretariat should please include the Internet Directorate <firstname.lastname@example.org> in the external review distribution. Thanks. It is my intent to move the "additional background information" section to the working group wiki when the chartering is complete. It remains here for now, to make it easier for reviewers.
It'd be great if this worked out and produced useful stuff. That (getting started) is IMO more important than having the best charter text ever, esp. for the external review stage. I hope we quickly resolve any wording things (even without reaching perfection) and shoot this out.
I agree with the suggestion of removing the additional information section at the end. Add one sentence to the body of the charter about the PSL if you want, but having that whole section in the charter seems unnecessary.
When this charter goes for external review, we should ensure that some DNS expertise gets involved in the review. That can be accomplished by asking the Internet Directorate for an explicit review.
Thanks for already agreeing to reduce the text by removing the additional background and addresses Spencer's concern clearly in the text of the charter for related domains.
Like others, I'd really rather see the additional background info removed (and indeed, paragraphs 3 and 5 of the main body could also be removed). But if you insist on external review with it, I will not balk.
I would like to see the working group start from a narrow scope and recharter if the scope needs widening, as Richard has suggested.
Well done for moving the additional information out of the main body of the charter text. How about going one step further and deleting all of the "Additional Background Information"? I know it is always hard to delete text, but this discussion belongs in an I-D not here.
