Itís deplorable, but at the moment groups Ďrun off the end of the pierí, let their charter expire, and only then start worrying about renewing it. If we were to introduce this rule today, when charter expiry is all too common, chaos and panic would ensue. I donít want to be in the position of the forced closure of a WG that we all agree should have been re-chartered and still operating. That would be Ö embarrassing.

Totally agree.  We should be able to process a new charter pretty simply and quickly if all that has happened is a change of milestone dates (and there is some accompanying material explaining whatís going on).
