I am assuming that even with these abstentions, this is still worth
sending. Those of you who haven't abstained, please let the list know
if this assumption is in error in the next few hours.
Attached please find a letter from the GNSO Council written in
response to your opem letter of April 24 2009 to the ICANN CEO. This
communication has been approved by the GNSO Council with the noted
abstention of the Commercial and Business Constituency, Internet
Service Providers and Connectivity Providers
Constituency, and of Kristina Rosette. Additionally Mary Wong, as an
active participant in the Implementation Recommendation Team (IRT),
felt that support of this document at this time might be inconsistent
with her work as part of the IRT and has also abstained.
Thank you for the opportunity to comment and for accepting our comment
at this time. The GNSO Council looks forward to discussing the issue
with the GAC at our joint meeting in Sydney.
