Thanks for the Council report, Mike.

Looks like the BC had its way on all 3 votes today, which is pretty good for an ‘uneventful’ meeting.

Thanks Steve.  I can’t make the BC call tomorrow because of the short notice.  Since there is so little advance notice and so little on the agenda of much interest to many members, I suspect most members will not attend.  But I am happy to answer questions on or off the list about anything before the Council or otherwise on tomorrow’s agenda.

Here also is a link to the Council’s Pending Project List, which in turn contains links to everything the Council is involved in.


In today’s meeting:

•        the Council approved the WHOIS “misuse” study as we requested

·        the Council approved the slate of Review Team candidates as we requested, not including the late proposed addition from the NCSG

·        the Council approved that the Vertical Integration report be sent to the Board in advance of its retreat later this month, which we supported

·        the Council approved the motion to create a ‘community working group’ to advise ICANN wrt to the new gTLD recommendation re Morality and Public Order

Another rather uneventful Council meeting, very little substance to report.  I do not expect that to change much until after the Board retreat, if there are any resolutions from it.
