Dear PDWG,

Hope this email finds you in good health!
Please see my comments below, inline...

Hi Jordi,

You are doing a good follow-up, brother.
Thanks for you email.

How the PDWG could know it in advance? Or any one :-/
...and which decisions the PDWG must take?

Please clarify, brother.

OK! but you don't need a permission to do exactly this :-/

Jordi, i understand the timing problem you are
raising; but what can be done, right now?

...i expect no addition from their comments. You
know the truth and you know how to fix the issue
you discovered...why do you want to set a preceding?

An "interpretation" for what purpose?

The running version (v1.6) of the CPM is clearly
lacking a policy to properly handle the issue you actually described very
precisely. There we are...
and it's fine that we have had the opportunity to finally discover it.
Sure, we are not perfect!

Time to fix, then?

...a Draft Policy Proposal (DPP) content could be something like the
following text:

Notwithstanding the PDP and the normal lifecycle of a DPP, when the PDWG's
Appeal Committee confirms that a DPP is under an appeal; the counter
measuring the lifecycle of that DPP is automatically stopped. Its counter
is automatically released when the PDWG's AC publishes a final
determination about that appeal.

...under CC0!
