Not too many people have commented on this, but all the comments are in a
similar direction, so I’m going to go ahead and ask the ICANN folks to
setup a forum and get a page ready that has all the relevant details,
including a notice along the lines that Daniel proposes below about our
much preferred communication mechanism being via the relevant communities
and ICG participants. I’d like to also list an email address contact for
the secretariat on the forum landing page, so that if people don’t know
how to find a particular community or ICG participant, the secretariat can
help point those people in the right direction or ask us for such

Let’s give a 10-day comment period once the page and forum get setup —
compromise between 7 and 14. :) Plus if we do that we should have a decent
chance of having some synthesis of the charter comments ready in time for
our to-be-scheduled teleconference in late August.

Comments welcome on this plan, of course.
