[rpd] status of appeals submitted last January

Thu Apr 21 13:05:09 UTC 2022

The report for the 3 proposals under appeal has been sent already long time ago (unless I'm wrong).

The problem is that one of the proposals may expire if the interpretation of the CPM is "Board ratification date" vs "Board having received the ratification report date".

Actually this is broader problem, which we have never considered before I believe, and is not even related to possible appeals. Let's assume that that a policy proposal reach consensus very close to the expiry date, then co-chairs send the ratification report and there are no appeals. However, because the agenda of the Board is too busy, or a Board meeting is planned already "after" the one-year proposal, expiry will happen.

This is a very bad situation that actual CPM text doesn't handle very well ... again, unless the staff interpretation is assuming the date of the ratification report submission, not the ratification date itself.

    The Policy Development Working Group co-Chairs usually send a report 
    to request ratification of a policy proposal.  The policy proposal is 
    added to the agenda for the next Board meeting.

    There are at least two steps in the above which are dependant on 
    other parties.  Those steps would have to be completed, assuming that 
    the above is correct, before the matter reaches the Board.
