Hello Malcolm,

I have been looking at this from every angle I could think of and this is what I came to propose - and welcome your letter as feedback that we can discuss.

Many thanks and hope to see you at ICANN 64.

Best regards

Good to have you back.

I thought that we had agreed it is best resolved by decision of the SOs and ACs, not by the ICANN Chief Executive.

I thought we had agreed that you and I would draft a letter addressed to the SOs and ACs inviting them

i) to refresh our group with new participants; and
ii) to state whether ICANN staff are eligible for membership of this group.

This letter does not fulfil that decision I thought we had made.
