Well, if that?s the case and the Board know everything anyway, then why
bother to have a vote at all???
But as there was a vote, I would appreciate knowing what if anything has

Perhaps we should create a drafting team? Or a team to draft a charter for
a drafting team? We could be ready to report the vote in August...
After all the public pronouncements and back channel communications, is
there really any chance that the board does not know where the
constituencies stand on the bylaws? Why spend time negotiating how to
package and spoon feed them things they already know? Why not just report
the vote per usual and move on?

Avri - could you provide can update of where we are with this. Have you
communicated anything at all to the Board regarding this vote yet?

I agree that Tim's approach is sensible. But if we're aiming for maximum
transparency, I would also like it be recorded that in my message before the
meeting stating I would be unable to participate, I said I would vote in
favor. This may also be useful info for the Board.
I'm not sure I can post to the Council list from this, my secondary email
address, so perhaps one of you would be kind enough to forward this message
to the Council list.

Avri's proposed approach is sensible and would be NCUC's preference.
However, if there's overwhelming sentiment that differentiated reporting is
needed, it would be better to respect board members' intelligence and
dispense with the transparent spinning. Tim's approach would be preferable
in that context.

Perhaps, in this sunset of the GNSO as we
have known it, you may see your way to
accomodating this rather simple request from
three of the existing constituencies.
I beleive that all of us are trying to get the
restructuring process "right", and certain
issues are important to some rather than to
others. I think the Board deserves to be
aware of this.

this request is about transparency and relevance.
It is a formal request from the BC.
