Resumen

LACNIC's Policy Development Process (PDP) was modified less than a year ago. Since it’s been in use, a minor flaw has been detected which can be very easily corrected.

This flaw is that, if a policy proposal does not reach consensus and the comments it receives are not enough to show the authors “the way forward,” as written, the current text would force the authors to “artificially” submit a new version in order to keep the original proposal under discussion.

This flaw is that, if a policy proposal does not reach consensus and the comments it receives are not enough to show the author
s “the way forward,” as written, the current text would force the authors to “artificially” submit a new version in order to keep the original proposal under discussion.

Justificación

This proposal suggests a minor modification to the text which would allow a proposal to continue under discussion when the chairs and the authors believe it is reasonable to do so, without the need for the author to submit a new version with an “artificial” modification to keep the proposal within the PDP cycle.

In addition, it would avoid staff “overhead” due to having to transate a new version with “artificial” modifications.

Información Adicional

Each RIR has its own PDP. However, in some RIRs such as RIPE, the chairs already have the option of allowing a policy proposal to remain under discussion without the need for a new version.
