As i can read from your document titled "Recall Committee Final
Determination - 20210204.pdf" [1], the outcome was the recall of both
PDWG's Chairs:

Findings/Outcome of the Recall Committee
19. The Committee therefore determines that a recall of both the co-Chairs
is justifiable in the circumstances, and that both the co-Chairs be
recalled with immediate effect.
20. The Committee notes that article 3.3 of the CPM states that “If the
Working Group Chair is unable to serve his or her full term, the Working
Group may select a replacement to serve the remainder of the term.” The
Committee suggests that the Board coordinate with the PDWG to find an
adequate transition mechanism until the next election.
Dated: 4 February 2021

...i have a few comments:

• ...
• Very meticulous work done by the PDWG RC.
• The PDWG RC Working Procedure [2] is a useful document produced, at that
occasion, even if it has been done out of the PDP consensus-based process
and the PDWG's core principles;
• The fact that the PDWG RC Working Procedure is not part of the CPM is a
bad thing; therefore
• i suggest that the members of the PDWG's RC volunteer in adjusting it to
be submitted as a new DPP when the new PDWG's Chairs will take function;
{same advice to the members of other PDWG Committees about their Guidelines}
• Maybe the (interim) PDWG's Chairs will want to use their right to varying
the process (CPM section 3.6), so that the then DPP becomes kickly a Policy.
