[council] Topic for next Agenda was Re:  Incoming Council members
In terms of that agenda, I currently see two dominant issues:
1. Discussion of the contents of the yet to be approved letter form
the Board to the GNSO asking for the GNSO to do some work related to
the DAG and the IRT recommendations.
2. Any issues that still need to be dealt with in terms of completing
the transition/restructuring. E.g. the assignment of NCAs to houses
if that has not been completed yet (completion date is listed as 7
Oct) or any other issue that is pending.
The agenda will come out this Thursday. If anyone on the council has
any issues they think also need to be covered, please let me know.
Also in terms of the Board-GNSO-Staff Diner topic - I am thinking
that the contents of the yet to be seen letter might be just the
thing. Does this sound reasonable? Any other suggestions?
I am also thinking that this letter should be on the Wednesday Public

I am anticipating that our agenda may be shorter than usual so I
think that it would be good if we have an agenda item at the
beginning to welcome the new Councilors and an agenda item at the
end allowing them to ask questions if they have any and if time
permits. Other than that it is probably best that the new
Councilors are there as observers unless there is a discussion topic
that specifically involves them.

NCA input to House placement
Sorry if i was unclear. i was suggesting that they be there
But I was not explicit in the part I wrote for that message,
only in the part I included from a previous message.
BTW, 'as observers' normally means, in a GNSO context, that
they can participate just not vote or make motions.

I object to them joining as Councillors.
They should be there as observers only.

I should mention that Andrey has been added to this list (as all
newly appointed/elected council members will be), and I welcome
him. Of course the incoming council members are
observers on the
list until 28 October. In keep with our normal
processes, I invite
the new council members to participate on the list as
fully as they
feel ready to with voting and the making of motions
being the only
I would like to suggest that incoming council members also be
invited to join the next Council call on on 8 October.
Since this is not part of the normal process, I want to
there are no objections.
