[rpd] Cooperation re PDP update proposal

Wed Feb 13 19:35:01 UTC 2019

Hi Dewole, all,

I've done already this long time ago, but never got a response.

If you look at the archive of the mailing list, it was done even during the meeting. I explained in the meeting that I will send my own *raw* notes to the list, and I did that. Here is the direct link:

I'm happy to discuss point by point to get this progressing ahead.

The main issue is that reading again the proposal after not getting answers before and from the Dakar meeting, I realized that it is way too complex. Is basically trying to copy the RIPE process, which for me, as I said in the meeting, was one of the best ones (I recall it was presented a video where I said that), but once you look into other regions as well, you see that a bad copy is not always a good thing, especially if there is unnecessary complexity, in a region where the participation in the PDP is close to zero.

We need a very simple process, we need to make simpler the actual one, not more complex and sophisticated. This is one of the ways we can get a participation increase, which is and must be the main goal of a PDP update.

I'm sure everybody agree on this.

Asunto: [rpd] Cooperation re PDP update proposal

    Good day Authors,
    I trust you are doing well. As agreed during the last public policy 
    meeting, I hope you have given some thought to how contributions on the 
    PDP update proposal can be accepted.
    Jordi, you had mentioned some areas that you believe need improvement in 
    the current PDP BIS proposal draft - can we start by laying out these 
    areas and seeing which ones can be absorbed into the PDP BIS draft?
    Authors, would it be possible to group the proposed changes to the PDP 
    in such a way that patches are applied to the areas of concern that 
    reach rough consensus of the PDWG rather than waiting to have agreement 
    on *all* the parts of the proposal? These groups of changes could also 
    be proposed simultaneously as separate proposals at the same time if all 
    parts must be addressed at once.
    Do note that you are not compelled to do any of the above but this is 
    the co-chairs' attempt to see the process move forward in a manner that 
    would save us months and see us finding rough consensus on all or part 
    of the existing proposal; As per the PDP, the alternatives of 
    maintaining the status quo and/or accepting new proposals on the same 
    subject definitely remain.
    Please note that the rpd list is in copy so that other members may also 
    volunteer input as this process goes on. Looking forward to reading from 
    you soon.
    PDWG Co-Chairs.
