Dear PDWG Co-Chairs,

It would be good to know what  to expect from the authors now that we have an Appeal Committee with a different definition of consensus, which at its discretion and in violation of the PDP can overrule the Co-Chairs.

Can the Co-chairs  tell us which consensus process shall prevail?  The rfc7282 rough consensus we’ve been following upon the PDP up till this point or the new Appeal Committee’s notion of consensus?
Until we have a clear responses to this issues,  policy proposal discussions and actions sounds like a waste of community time.

Best wishes
