Subject: Appeal against softlanding-bis declaration of consensus

Hi PWDG Appeal Committee,

We are appealing against the declaration of consensus made by the PDWG Co-Chairs on the 26th of December 2017.

As per the process:

Section 5.1 is met through their declaration of consensus under section 5.1.a of the appeal process

The complainants, Mr. Owen Delong, Mr. Sander Stefan, Mr. Mark Elkins, Mr. Andrew Alston and Mr. Saul Stein have all clearly indicated on the lists a good faith belief that the declaration of consensus was in error – this fulfills section 5.1.b of the appeal process.

Attempts were made to engage with the chairs of the PDWG by all of the aforementioned complainants with no response being received – we believe this fulfills section 5.1.c of the appeal process

Considering the decision to declare consensus is still standing, we believe that the disagreement has not been resolved, fulfilling section 5.1.d of the appeal process

The chairs have not even responded to our requests on the email lists hence we believe that section 5.1.e of the appeal process has also been met.

We hereby attach supplemental documentation supporting our appeal and stating why we believe that this decision was in error and must be reversed, including all requirements as per section 5.2.a through 5.2.c, as well as 5.2.e through 5.2.h

5.2.i of the appeal process is met by the sending of this email.  5.2.e of the appeal process shall be met in due course by a minimum of 3 of the aforementioned individuals supporting the appeal (all appellants are copied)

We look forward to hearing from you

Andrew Alston
