  • Thread-topic: Resignation of the Chair of WHOIS TF3

Hello All,

Unfortunately Brian Darville has had to resign from chairing WHOIS TF3
due to other commitments.
I thank Brian for his efforts in chairing the TF3 and working to
identify a consensus position.

It seemed that there was some progress in discussions involving the
whole Council in Cape Town.

If the Council agrees, I am prepared to chair a couple of extra meetings
in January 2005 to get some agreement around some high-level
recommendations (similar to those developed so far by WHOIS TF1/2), and
then leave the Task Force to elect a new chair and flesh out the detail
of  recommendations in a report suitable for public comment and
eventually formal approval as a consensus recommendation.

Subject: Task Force 3 - Resignation as Chair and From the Task Force

Dear Bruce:

I am writing to formally notify you that I am resigning from
participation in Task Force 3, including my role as Chair of the Task
Force.  Due to other professional commitments I have undertaken
recently, I cannot continue to participate in the Task Force.

I had originally planned that my participation in the Task Force would
end in October 2004.  I stayed on through December in an effort to reach
consensus on the narrow recommendations the Task Force had been
considering this fall.  However, we were unable to reach a consensus.
At this point, I believe it will be fruitful for the IPC to appoint
another Task Force representative who can more fully participate in the
Task Force, including traveling to the various ICANN meetings.

I appreciate your assisting the Task Force this Fall, and wish you and
the other Task Force members a swift resolution of the Task Force's
remaining work.


Brian Darville
Oblon, Spivak
