Thanks Stéphane,
in my opinion in particular Rob Hoggarth's allocation is questionnable taking into consideration that he is one of the key ICANN staff relating to the GNSO tasks. I think ICANN should ensure that his performance regarding the GNSO work will not get effected negatively.

Kind regards

		Dear JAS WG Co-Chairs,
		After having spoken to Rod Beckstrom and an exchange of emails with Kurt
		Pritz, I am pleased to be able to inform you of additional staff members
		who will join the JAS WG support team in order to somehow ease the
		pressure on the current staff and volunteers. Whilst I am well aware
		that the concept of "man-days" does not always apply, I believe that the
		additional staff members bring the skills and experience to the JAS
		table which the writing Team should be able to exploit immediately,
		especially given the extremely short deadlines which the WG is faced with.
		I therefore resort to both of you, Carlton and Rafik, to incorporate the
		new arrivals to the JAS WG as soon as possible, whether by integrating
		them on the WG calls, the WG post-calls, etc.
		First, Rob Hoggarth from Policy Development Support will pick up
		drafting for the final report. Karen Lentz will provide editing
		assistance. Dan Halloran will join the team to identify and take back
		legal issues that arise. In making these selections, Rod and Kurt tried
		to find those individuals that would best ensure the success of the
		group and I am grateful for them taking the time to study this
		carefully. In addition, Lynn Lipinski from the ICANN communications
		staff will remain on the staff support team and undertake the writing of
		public information about the process as previously agreed. Karla and
		Seth will also continue to support the team in their current roles.
		These additions are effective immediately and we expect to see a
		beneficial effect right away. I gather that current staff for the WG can
		integrate newcomers ASAP and trust that this will give a bit more oxygen
		to the current WG members to breathe once in a while.
		In the meantime, please let me know if there is anything else that the
		ALAC can do to help to catalyse the production of the JAS Final Report.
		Kind regards,
		Olivier Crepin-Leblond
		ALAC Chair
