Dear Jean-Jaques,

thank you very much for conveying the position of ALAC again. I had
hoped that ALAC would take note that several ICG members have expressed
a different interpretation of what has in fact occurred at our London
meeting. It is unfortunate that we do not have agreed minutes we can
refer to; however re-reading the transcript re-enforces my own
perception that in fact the proceedings were merely exploratory and no
decision in the matter was taken at that meeting.

It is unfortunate and not at all helpful that ALAC has decided to
re-iterate its firm position in the light of a compromise emerging.
I fear that this matter will have to be resolved at a face-to-face
meeting unless ALAC chooses to change its position in the direction of
the emerging compromise.

We now face a number of operational challenges: we have to agree on who
prepares and chairs the August teleconference. It is my perception that
there is consensus that Alissa do so for us. It would help if we could
hear explicit opinions from the ICG membership about this.

More seriously we have to agree who prepares and chairs our September
f2f meeting. Since I understand that Alissa will not be available to
chair the meeting we will have to find another person for that role, at
least until we decide on definite chairs. The only practical solution I
can see is to engage an external chair for this purpose. We need to come
to agreement on this soon if we care about the image of this group.
