I agree, and would support the stronger phrasing.  I think we need to
help make management and Board more conscious of the risks to the
organization of continued delay.

However, I do think GNSO Principle A is getting more and more often overlooked as time passes and that reminders that the GNSO's first focus was on the new gTLDs being introduced in a "orderly, timely and predictable way", the operative words here being timely and predictable, are warranted.

>> An agenda item for the 18 Feb Council meeting will be to finalize discussion topics for the Board/Staff/GNSO Dinner Meeting in Nairobi,  In preparation for that, I would like to request that Councilors propose topics this week.  Discussion of proposed topics is also encouraged on the list.
