    • Hi again ... see below ...

          Dear Colleagues,
          I am Satoru Tsurumaki from Japan Open Policy Forum.
          I would like to share key feedback in our community for prop-134,
          based on a meeting we organised on 4th Feb to discuss these proposals.
          We discussed this proposal dividing into 3 parts below.
          1. Wording of "rough consensus"
          Many opposing opinions were expressed.
           - Rough consensus seems something that almost attendees agrees, but
          the consensus in OPM is a consensus that the chair decides based on
          grounds, so the term rough consensus may be different.
      [Jordi] If you follow the recent email exchange with Adam, I think it is clear that we are talking of the same (minor objections is consensus, major is not).
          2. electronic means
          Many opposing opinions were expressed about electronic means.
           - I support using the electronic system like a CONFER to gauge
          support for a policy proposal, but oppose voting by using current
          electronic system because of lack of identification.
      [Jordi] We always have said that is not a voting. The proposal is not changing that! Never has been identified the people even in the meeting room, neither in the list or confer! The proposal is not changing that.
           - The specification is unclear about introducing an electronic
          statement of intention.
      [Jordi] Today we use confer. It was not used a few years ago. Tomorrow it can be a different tool to gauge the support. The PDP must have a language that, as much as possible, is self-adaptative to different tools. If we state "confer" and tomorrow the secretariat finds a better tool, we need to pass it thru the PDP. In fact, user confer today is *against* the PDP, because it is not explicitly supported. Even more than that, today following the PDP the few inputs in the list (including your emails), can't be formally considered as part of the consensus decision by the chairs. It makes sense to include that in the PDP.
           - It is necessary to use a means such as a registered name to avoid
          the organized vote.
      [Jordi] If we decide to use voting, and ask everyone in the meeting room to be also identified, they we should change our model. Otherwise, the same done in the meeting room should be done here. For example, if the NIRs are talking from the inputs provided by their own communities, should also the people partiticipating in the NIRs also be identified?
          3. Expiring the proposal
          Many supporting opinions were expressed about expiring the proposal.
          In Japan, the same policy already make a consensus at last Japan Open
          policy Meeting.
      [Jordi] Just to make sure I got it correctly. You mean that you support this specific change as well?
