May I also suggest as part of the problem definition we include

What does adopt IPv6 mean?

It can mean many things:

It's available:
- networks  offer it as an additional option for traffic
- devices/operating systems offer it as an option for traffic
- services offer it as an option for connecting

Or it could mean

It's preferred:
- networks offer it as the preferred  option for traffic
- devices/operating systems offer it as the preferred option for traffic
- services offer it as the preferred option for connecting

 Or it could mean

It's exclusive:
- networks  offer it as the only option for traffic
- devices/operating systems offer it as the only option for traffic
- services offer it as the only option for connecting

Defining this is important, and I don't know for certain that everyone would answer the question the same way.

Perhaps even a poll of our participants would be revealing in how we answer this.

I will go first: my ideal goal is it's exclusive; my realistic choice it's that it's preferred.

Greetings, all,

Thanks to all who joined us for the call yesterday. We are off to a brilliant start. Three things:

First, I would like to introduce Wim DeGezelle, who will be assisting us generally, and especially in collecting materials and drafting the background and final documents for comment. Welcome, Wim. Wim will be preparing minutes from our recent call, which he shall circulate when ready.

In the meantime, the recording of the conversation is available here:


Second, on a procedural note, our first point of order is to create the background paper by the end of June. The background paper should form, to a large extent, the "preface" to the final paper.

In the background paper we should define the problem. Recalling comments from the call, the problem definition - in it of itself - will be of great practical value to the broader community.

Let us begin our discussion on the problem definition. To start, what is the question that we are trying to answer, e.g.:

  *   Why is it important to adopt IPv6?
  *   What are best practices for creating an environment that enables IPv6 adoption?
  *   ....?

The background paper should include this problem definition, in addition to an outline of the planned table of contents.

Third, In terms of the table of contents, our starting point is the template provided by ISOC. This can be changed to suit our purposes.

1.     Definition of the issue
2.     Regional specificities observed (e.g. Internet industry development)
3.     Existing policy measures and private sector initiatives, impediments
4.     What worked well, identifying common effective practices
5.     Unintended consequences of policy interventions, good and bad
6.     Unresolved issues where further multistakeholder cooperation is needed
7.     Insights gained as a result of the experience
8.     Proposed steps for further multistakeholder dialogue

Perhaps we should start a separate email thread discussing this format?

In terms of scheduling, we'd like to host fortnightly calls starting June 3rd. Here is the Doodle poll for selecting a time on the 3rd: http://doodle.com/e6x25d8tn288dnq9
It would be lovely if you could fill in your preferences by close of business on Monday.

Many thanks, and let's define this problem!
