Hello Anne and everyone,

The Council¹s 19 March meeting agenda for which Avri linked to the
transcript (below) included an agenda item on the two potential request
items for the SCI. These were scoped out by Avri and staff, as agreed at the
SCI update session with the GNSO in Singapore in early February, and sent to
the Council for its review on 10 March. A notification to that effect with
links to the documented request templates was provided to the SCI
immediately following.

As far as we can tell, those were the only two items for potential Council
action stemming from the Singapore discussions. The additional topic to
which Anne had made reference in a separate email ­ regarding Council voting
thresholds ­ has not been discussed within the SCI, as it was a potential
topic first noted by the Council and remains ³on hold² by the Council. It
was noted as such by the SCI at the Los Angeles meeting in October 2014.

I hope this helps.
