[council] Performance of the GNSO Council Report

Your recollection is incorrect.  I was not contracted and, as a consequence,
I do not have on file any report which is even close to the dates you have
supplied.  That is why I think that perhaps there has been an error.

You must have mistaken my much earlier contribution on the GNSO policy
development process.   As you are aware, I have moved countries in the last
six weeks to take up my position as Senior Policy Counselor.  My archived
reports are in my computer files in Australia.

I will try to locate the much earlier report as quickly as possible.

My recollection was that your report was completed in the summer
(June-July) timeframe around the KL meeting. It was only in October (3/4
months later) that your report was to be made public. As a consultant I
am sure you kept a copy of any reports you were paid to do, at least
that is what I do as a consultant. Perhaps these time frames could help
you locating that work which you were contracted to do.

Best regards,

Michael D. Palage

Hi Michael

Very easy to answer this one from my side -- my third daughter was born
25 October 2004 at 7:45pm.   There was no way I would have been in any
condition to do this report.

I will look in other likely places but, given that this hasn't come to
light before, I wonder if this isn't an error?

Kind regards.

In connection with the current GNSO review, I was researching some
historical information in connection with the Council review conducted
last year. In looking through the minutes of the GNSO Council call of
21-October-2004 (see
http://gnso.icann.org/meetings/minutes-gnso-21oct04.htm) I noticed the
following action item which I have reproduced below.

 d. Performance of the GNSO Council
As regards the report on the performance of the GNSO Council that Dr.
Paul Twomey had retained a consultant, Dr. Liz Williams to prepare
earlier this year, a public version of the report will be posted by the
end of October. 

In my research I was unable to locate this report. Could you or any of
the other council member please direct me to where I can obtain a copy.
I believe that this is an important background document in connection
with the work that is currently underway.

Best regards,

Michael D. Palage
