[Ccwg-auctionproceeds] Conflict Of Interest, was Fwd: Board reply to CCWG-AP

Hi all,

After reading the Board reply with respect to 'Conflict Of Interest', it
is getting obvious that the Board does not encourage that ccWG-members
would also nominate for receiving/dispersing auction-funds later-on.
I have to respect that, and therefor have decided to leave the ccWG per

Note that NLnet Foundation over the last 20 years has been very active
in dispersing our own charity-fund to hundreds of Internet projects, the
last years primarily on open source and cybersecurity.

It was our intention to share our 'Internet-charity-experience' with
this team DURING the ccWG, AND to provide support with dispersing parts
of the auction-funds to the right non-profit cybersecurity projects
AFTER the ccWG.

Now that it retrospectively turns out that the first support may exclude
us from the second support, we have no choice than to leave the ccWG,
since potentially receiving a (modest) part of the ICANN funds is
crucial for our NLnet-battle against exponentially growing cybersecurity

Many thanks for working together with you, and all the best with the
remaining work in the ccWG !

Kind regards,
