Thanks so much, Nigel, for sharing this information about the WIPO discussions.

I know that everyone is very busy, but I wonder if it might be possible for staff to clip and share from the last two discussions on this topic in the GAC transcripts, or just even post the links to those GAC discussions.

Just having returned from Afghanistan, and also engaging in some discussions in the Arab speaking countries about cultural sensitivities about certain words, and seeing that some countries are frustrated with the lack of recognition of their concerns at ICANN, I am very interested in being sure that the CCWG-IG [under its new name] has taken the opportunity to be informed about the concerns raised in the GAC discussions. As you note, this is in discussion status.

As so many of us are busy elsewhere during ICANN meetings, we may be missing the discussions where countries explain the implications for their citizens, and why they have concerns.

I was able to attend and listen in person to one of the discussions, and then to read the transcripts, but I know it is challenging, given all that we all have on our plates.

If staff can provide the links to the relevant GAC meeting discussions in ICANN65, I am sure that alone will be helpful!
