I have not come upon any yet....am still listening to the last of the recordings.

Good question to ask, when we request a briefing.

Thank you for sharing this, Stephanie, this is very interesting - it seems this group has a lot of resources at their disposal. Do we have any insights into what budget has been allocated to this work?

I am really mystified, having taken the time to examine the records and mailing list of the

TSG-Access-RD which Benedict mentioned, that we were not briefed on the meetings, the group, and the questions they are settling, many of which depend on policy decisions.  I am also mystified as to why this appointed group of technical experts has funding to their Washington meetings and to Kobe, and our group does not have funding for Kobe.

Further, it looks as if they need some legal advice.  I recommend they consider adding Ruth as an independent outside counsel, and add a policy person to think up the questions to ask her.

Kind regards,

Stephanie Perrin

Dear Kurt

In reply to my earlier message regarding Travel Support for Kobe meeting of EPDP ,I received the following from secretariat


From Marika Koenig

Dear All,

For your information, the following meetings have been requested for the EPDP Team for ICANN64:

  *   Saturday, 09 March - 08:30-18:30
  *   Sunday, 10 March - 17:00-18:30
  *   Wed, 13 March - 10:30 -12:00
  *   Thursday, 14 March - 08:30-10:15

It will be decided closer to the date whether all these sessions are needed, but at a minimum, the EPDP Team is expected to meet all day on Saturday 9 March.

Note that no travel support is available for this meeting, but remote participation will be available. Similarly, alternates can be requested to step in for members not attending ICANN64.

Best regards,

Caitlin, Berry and Marika


This announcement is disappointing and frustrating as based on the past experience all these TEAM MEETINGS were provided with travel support.

I do not understand nor convinced that why for almost the last f2f meeting there would be no travel support

In view of the circumstances some of us encountering, may I request you to seriously consider the matter and provide travel support at least for those who are in special circumstances or those that they asked for that

I am awaiting your kind attention and favourable reply as soon as possible allowing us to make the travel arrangement in a smooth manner
