[rpd] Question about the current soft landing policy...

Hi Guys,

So, I was looking at the current soft landing policy - and I'm now confused -

According to the history of the policy as per what is published:

On the 28th of May 2011 the last call completed and the PDWG co-chairs declared no consensus.
On the 5th of August 2011 an updated version of the proposal was posted to the website and the rpd mailing list
On the 11th of November 2011 the proposal was ratified by the board under resolution 201111.138

Can someone explain to me how this is possible - because between the posting of an updated version of the proposal on the 5th of August 2011 and the resolution that ratified the policy - there was no public policy meeting - the public policy meeting was held at AFRINIC-15 from the 19th to 25th of November 2011 in Cameroon.

Even if we assume that consensus on the policy was found at AFRINIC-14 between the 4th and 10th of June 2011 in Dar es Salaam - the process states that there should have been another last call period on the policy that was ratified (even if modifications were concluded in dar es salaam).

So - if that history is correct on the policy - the ratification of the policy is not valid since it is a violation of the PDP process - does anyone have any archives that go back this far so we can get a real history on the current policy and check its validity please?
