While I probably agree, I think it would be good to have an analysis of
what it achieved before we decide to renew it.

To what extent have things changed?  Do we get input earlier? Have we
stopped GAC end runs? Or even slowed them down?  Have we made sure that
GAC concerns where not only fed in early enough in the various
processes, but are taken seriously and avoided end runs?

I expect the answer to most of these is a somewhat tepid 'maybe'. 

So while I am possibly inclined to voting for another year of pilot,
since it is a pilot I believe I need a bit more information before deciding.

Also is there a similar move in the GAC to renew?  Or will we be
renewing it and then asking them to do please do likewise?  Have they
invited us to renew?  I know the motions say that both GAC and the GNSO
have already agreed to renew, perhaps we should list the resolutions and
the statement from GAC that shows this is so.  I think I missed them
