[council] Draft message to the Board

We have to rush because I assume the Board is reviewing the report having been sent it directly from the WG.

It is important that they understand the report has not been reviewed not approved by the Council.

These are facts. Why can't they be stated?

Should we have a vote on this?
I do not understand why we have to rush, could some one clarify this to me?

Maybe I can help, I believe SVG means that, of all the responses to the list so far, all have agreed with my statement and request to send a letter to the Board.

Hi Stéphane,
my apologies if I missed some emails, I was travelling.
Could you please clarify "unanimous support"?
Many thanks and regards

In response to Adrian's suggestion, which so far has met with unanimous support, I have drafted this short email to the Board. Please let me have your thoughts and any suggested edits. Rafik, as JAS WG co-chair and Council liaison, I think it is crucial that we have your input before sending any message to the Board.



Dear Peter,

On May 10, the Board was sent the Joint SO/AC New gTLD Applicant Support Working Group ( JAS WG)'s Second Milestone Report by ALAC. We understand that this report has not yet been approved by ALAC.

The GNSO Council wishes to highlight the fact that it has not approved this report yet either. In fact, the Council has only just received it. The report was sent to us by the co-chairs of the JAS working group on May 9, 2011.

As one of the two chartering organisations of the JAS WG, the GNSO is keen to ensure that the Board understands the nature of the report that it has been sent, and the circumstances under which it received it.

I would be grateful therefore, if you could convey the GNSO Council's message to the Board.


Stéphane Van Gelder
GNSO Council Chair
