The draft timeline (link provided below) is nothing more than a list of 
ICANN meetings, each described as a "meeting of the global multistakeholder 
community". No other events are included.

Of course many, if not most, of the global multistakeholder community do not 
attend ICANN meetings. Many people with only  a passing interest in the day 
to day operations of ICANN have an interest in how this transfer of powers 
is resolved.

One would hope consultation spreads well beyond the narrow set of 
stakeholders involved in ICANN.

1net Discuss Participants -

Folks may be aware that after the NTIA announcement,  ICANN released
a draft timeline for development of an IANA oversight transition plan -


Today at ICANN 49 in Singapore, there was a session which discussed
the need to develop an IANA Accountability plan, as it will be necessary
to provide NTIA with a community-wide plan for transition of the oversight
duties which they presently perform.

ICANN is coordinating the effort to develop this plan for IANA transition,
and the first step is establishing a formal timeline and process for plan

ICANN has provided a mail list for expedited input on the _process_ to be
used for IANA transition plan development. This includes items such as
feedback on the timeline document above, engagement processes, etc.

The list is here: <ianatransition at icann.org>  (An public archive is also
available here: <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/ianatransition/>)

Note that the goal is to gather the input on the plan development process to
be used by 27 March 2014, and then combine the mail list discussion and the
discussions happening at ICANN 49, with the resulting timeline and next 
to be released for public comment and community feedback on 7 April 2014.

If you have specific views on process for development of the IANA transition
plan, I would suggest that you contribute promptly.  If I see an official 
announcement on this matter, I will forward to 1net and you can discard this
