if they published a proposed slate and said "we have now sent this
to the Confirming Body", something rather different would probably
Since the proposal was for disclosure much earlier in the process, what is the
point of introducing the issue of being selected by Nomcom?
Nothing in the proposal imposes additional tasks to the confirming body.
1. Add a new period to the timeline for the community to send
comments to NomCom and for NomCom to consider those comments,
and possibly change the slate as a result (in which case, GOTO 1).
The proposal was for disclosure of those nominated.
Hence, any public comment would be accepted during the same period as the
normally seeks comments explicitly. No change in timeline is needed.
2. Explicitly reduce the confirming bodies' role to verifying
that due process has been followed, since there is clearly no
scope for further debate about the chosen nominees after step 1.
