Arnaud thanks for these questions., because the PDP is still the same ;-) but its implementation (IAR
— Impact Analysis 
Report) can be really improved and now we are waiting for real *impact*,
of this single
change, in policy development activities.

IMHO, it's critical to have an IAR published for *every* version of
*any* draft policy proposal.

...but no, we do not, because it's a decision taken (with good
intentions, no doubt, but also
with a bad result after) by the previous WG Chairs and the AFRINIC
Staff, long time (we don't 
know when) before Jordi decides to raise the issue [1].

IMHO, the question could be : Is it actually possible to have that level
of disponibility of IARs ?

...the *YES* answer came from the Staff, but for me i don't care right
now because i will
(if GOD permit) check that affirmation during the coming twelve months
prior to make my 
own conclusion about this solution ; then i will be able to take a
personal new decision

Honestly, the answer could be yes, only if we consider the whole case
but not if we focus on the
good initiative taken by Jordi. 
...but again, those who abandoned [2] this provision of the CPM section
3.4.1, was our previous 
Chairs and, of course, the Community who was unable to see it happen. I
mean this is broken
since an unknown date [2], as already said above...

Good question Arnaud. it not just a matter of *structural* type of draft policy
proposals ? {on this thread [3]
 Jordi did some observations about how the proposed policy changes could
influence the
'complexity' the Staff are facing while realising impact analysis.}

> Is this not the cochairs call?

...yes it's the PDWG Chairs responsibility, but now the Staff has just
to convince the new Chairs
 as they did with the previous :-) 
IMHO, the diffence with *this agreement* is that there is better outcome
to expect : an IAR
published for *every* version of *any* draf policy proposal.
[1]: The entire thread shows that we have tried different solutions,
including a draft policy proposal
only for IARs Timely Publication
