  • There is one comment form (google form) per Domain which is currently set up and being used. An excel spreadsheet is also provided per Domain for "mass entry" of comments. The excel spreadsheet is then sent to the email address which is listed.
  • CP ballot process
  • Action: Chris Carr, Nichole, and Teri: Need to bridge the gap between TI comments and CPs (which also existed with forums). In the past, TI comments were ignored until a CP was necessary. We need to discuss the comments with Chris and decide on process on 6/21 call
