Under a lot of board- and committee-speak (yukk) they urge their President to complete negotiations for the new gTLDs and set themself a time-limit of only 7 days to comment on the eventual negotiation results. Without negative feedback in seven days, the ICANN President is authorized to go ahead and sign the agreements. But don't hold your breath, the Board still CAN make comments and hold this up for a long time."
