There is no reply required on this.  The Council discussed it yesterday, it
is mostly unsurprising but all agreed that we continually need to strive for
better participation, and to prioritize the GNSO's vast workload.  The
Council will engage in exercises in the next few weeks to do that
prioritization, and of course we will keep this list in the loop for input
as that progresses.
