Should one assume you are speaking from a point of authority on behalf of the authors ????




The document provides only information that is a direct quote from the rpd list and the actual policy text. It is intended as a neutral summary to help people come up to speed on the proposal history and provided both pro and con information for each proposal.

It was not designed to “coach” people to come to any particular conclusion.

A school of thought will say that Foundation through this document(s) educates their fellows and brings them up to speed on topics on the front burner by giving them a clearer picture on what to expect from the policy discussions, in preparation for the discussion session at the summit. While another school of thought can view the same document otherwise. It all boils down to perspective.

I believe the point is that newcomers need to arrive at their own views and perspectives by reviewing the proposals and related background docs, rather than been coached to parrot statements in an obvious agenda to swell numbers of supporting voices at meetings. This is evident in the posts to the lists by some who make conflicting statements and sometimes they are just clearly out of sync.

Granted that some of these newcomers may still hold similar conclusions without coaching but my view is that this sort of “education” is gaming the PDP ….wherever it might come from. That Larus also has a checkered history in AFRINIC just makes it more suspect.
