Would you be against just an update? (from staff and/or Wolfgang K?)

It's a chicken & egg scenario - where does the dialogue start? I think
the discussion there would be ICANN community focussed.

No we do not have anything to present. I think the idea was more about
engaging the ICANN-wide debate on volunteer/staff/board interaction
based on the Internet Governance initiatives ICANN has recently engaged in.

The WG itself has had this discussion in the past and I am dubious that
we would get any more input that whatever little input we've had so far.
Everyone is complaining that decisions about Internet Governance are
being taken by this big black box called ICANN without the community
being solicited for input beforehand, yet when we have asked in the past
"what should this WG do?" we've received little or no feedback.
Indeed, I was under the impression that the WG members had already
decided what topics it was going to pursue. Do we need more input from
the community?

Kindest regards,
