I third Tim's timely suggestion. It has greater pan-constituency
appeal than malicious conduct, and the pending board letter and
remaining transition issues would be better addressed in more staid
settings. This is after all a dinner conversation, and deconstructing
and teasing out the many possible implications of the AoC would
engender lively and engaging debate. Would also allow us to address
the accountability issues that some folks expressed interest in vis
the ACSO discussion.

What about the new agreement/arrangement that is rumored to follow the
expiration of the JPA? Seems we should have more details on that by
Seoul, and likely a lot of questions.

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
