I corrected my initial statement made in my presentation and mentioned that the Co-chairs were recalled in the Q&A feature.


> 2) It has been said that one of the policy proposals that reached consensus hasn't been sent to the Board for ratification, which is not true, as discussed in the RPD mailing list. The co-chairs did send the policy to the Board, but the Board decided to ignore it, because it looks like they want the chairs to follow a format that has never been enforced before and it has not been approved by the community, neither the PDP.

This is a misinterpretation of the information provided by the Policy Liaison to the mailing list in regard to the report template.
