Re: Incubation public comment period

Matt Farina

This sparked a few thoughts I figured I would share...

1. If someone goes on vacation for a week they could miss a public comment period in its entirety. As someone who went through the 2 week period for my project I'd like it to go faster. But, as someone who takes vacations for a week I like that a comment period would not be so short that I'd miss it.

2. Has anyone ever commented in the second week?

3. In my experience, which may not mirror everyone, the DD's are primarily done by the projects. The SIGs they are presented to are small groups in the broader system. There are others who might have very relevant feedback.

4. Has anyone ever put in the time to provide comment feedback of any kind of useful or detailed nature? If no one is gonna use it does it matter?

I'm obviously not of one mind on this. But, I figured someone should comment in a comment period on comment periods.

Chris is suggesting reducing the comment period after a vote is called from two weeks to one week.


I can see the attraction, because in practice if people are going to comment it seems they’re likely to react pretty fast rather than leave it to the end of the comment period. And this won't be the first anyone hears about it because the DD will have been happening for some weeks prior to this. But it seems worth highlighting for public comment (how meta!)
