Re: [council] New GNSO Web Site Announcement


Thanks for this presentation.

In my view, the new website is a significant step towards making the GNSO 
easier to understand for the outside world. Although I do not feel able to 
provide any meaningful feedback until I've actually worked the site, it does 
look like content such as ongoing projects, mailing lists, documents, bylaws, 
minutes and transcripts of meetings, etc. will be much easier to find.

I would recommend that a session be organized on the Prague public agenda to 
highlight the site. I think the site needs to be demonstrated and the 
community's attention drawn to it.

As the Prague agenda is being put together now, I suggest you put in a request 
for such a session (need not be very long, maybe 30 mins).

What do you think?
