Hi John,

Many thanks for this summary and indeed for getting up at 0400 to be able
to provide it to us.

I agree with your suggestion, and David's support, for a funded liaison
person who can attend ccNSO and- David's suggestion - GAC meetings that run
at the same time as ours. It could be a useful first step to figuring out
how to implement the ATRT2 recommendation that we somehow get the GAC more
active in GNSO PDPs.

I wonder how we would go about discussing that in more detail in the GNSO
and, if appropriate, getting the idea into the works?

That said, I personally think you're doing a terrific job keeping us
informed about cc-world and it is really useful to get these updates from
you, with your day to day knowledge of GNSO Council issues, e.g. the cross
community working group. You are in danger of making yourself indispensable!
