I have recently posted this follow-up to the Board after losing the argument on
To the Board;

This constitutes additional notification to the Board, to the Structural
Improvements Committee of the Board and to the Public Comments area, on the
motion concerning the recommended By Laws changes in support of GNSO
restructuring as mandated by the Board.

Please note there was considerable unease about the GNSO Council taking this
vote before the closure of public comments and while key by-laws changes (Board
seats, NCSG seating) were not yet embedded in proposed text. The vote taken was
technically a pass at a barely quorate meeting. The following may be of
assistance to the Board in understanding the level of support of the GNSO vote:

1. Of the 21 members of Council, 7 members voted in favour.
2. Of the 6 GNSO Constituencies, only 2 voted in favour.
