[rpd] Appeal Committee Terms of Reference (Version 1)

Hi SM,

It could address the concern if 5.3.f made it clear that the public knowledge of the decision is deemed to be from the date of publication of the referred to minutes, but that then needs to be explicit.  Without that being explicit, it could easily be construed that public knowledge of the lack of consensus, or consensus, for a given policy is known when the decision is announced on the floor of the policy meeting.  Obviously in the case of appeals against decisions made at the end of last call process, the 14 day countdown would begin once an email announcing the end of last call period is announced.  So what I am saying applies specifically to decisions made in the context of a public policy meeting.

I am not 2 bothered about if we count the 14 days from the date of the PDP meeting or the date of the publication of the minutes, but it needs to be explicitly stated.

    Please see the sentence in the policy development 
    process about "minutes of proceedings of the 
    Public Policy Meeting".  Does that address the above comment?
