Dear all,

In a letter dated April 24 2009, GAC Chair Janis Karklins wrote to ICANN CEO
Paul Twomey on the subject of geographical names and the new gTLD process.

At our Council meeting last week, it was decided that we should respond to
this letter and I volunteered to write a draft. We agreed that our response
should be sent to the GAC asap, preferably by the end of this week, and Avri
informed the GAC that they should expect a response from the GNSO Council by
this Friday.

In order to fine-tune our draft response, a team was set up and I submitted
my draft to the team yesterday.

The team responded very quickly in order to meet the Council¹s Friday
deadline and considered my draft ³good to go², with one addition by David
Maher and a comment by Avri, both of which have been included in the draft
letter we are submitting to the full Council today (see attached).

Could you please review and let me know of any further changes you would
like to make, or of your approval, so that Avri may then send the finished
letter to the GAC on Friday.

My thanks to the members of the drafting team: David Maher - Avri Doria -
Nacho Amadoz - Edmon Chung - Brian Cute - Ken Stubbs - Olga Cavalli  - Tony
Harris - Terry Davis ­ William Drake.
