RE: [council] GNSO reform - need to set up the schedule NOW !
I do not think that our first meeting should be face to face. I do
think it will likely be valuable to have a face to face meeting but,
when we do, we need to maximize our time in that meeting. Therefore, I
believe that we should use our first week to establish some foundational
items as both Philip and I mentioned in emails. Of course, those items
need to be supported by the members of the group once it is formed
(hopefully by Monday).
