A clarification: In today's meeting, I wasn't pushing for a sloppy job.  
My intent was to discover what the most aggressive possible schedule 
is.  There is no point in trying to meet an impossible deadline.

Ed has convinced me that due to the procedural restrictions, this work 
can not be completed before 2015.  (Vote no sooner than Dec 2014, board 
approval spring 2015, first election under new rules Dec 2015).

Given that, we should make reasonable efforts to list and work on the 
the known issues as quickly as possible.  But we should not favor speed 
over participation, or set deadlines that require heroic efforts.

Based on that, here's a rough stab at a timeline:

Tell the ICANN staff that we're working on this today.

I suggest that we aim for publishing our issues lists/reviews of the 
current bylaws in the next week.

Work as much as we can on the mailing list; don't wait for another 
teleconference.  Use teleconferences (a precious resource) for issues, 
not procedural matters.

The reviews of other bylaws and determining where we can agree should 
run till mid-November, to allow full participation from those who have 

I'm sure the nov/dec holidays will make scheduling difficult - some 
people will have extra time, others none.

January is probably a good time to reach out beyond the working group 
with a strawman proposal (and options for any issues we can't resolve).

Then target our final report to the EC for mid-feb 14.  This should 
include preliminary staff feedback.

Vote in Dec 14.

Formal staff review (should be rubber stamp) in Jan 15, Board approval 
early 15.

Bylaws effective April 15, (operating with people elected under old 
bylaws); first election Dec 15
