At the end of the day the board is legally responsible for PeeringDB (why else does the board exist?). The role of the board should be acknowledged in this task force output. Already today anyone can write the board about an data-ownership issue which could mean they are appealing a decision someone made. 

If I recall correctly the group discussed on the January call to document escalation procedures. Yesterday’s draft didn’t contain such text yet. 

I would recommend to return to Chris’ original text: “Decisions of the Admin Committee may be appealed to the PeeringDB  Board of Directors.” as it is simplest and describes reality.

Kind regards,
