Re: AW: [council] Fwd: Update on "Expressions of Interest" Group
Perhaps I have missed something, but from the
ALAC-person-who-is-not-representing-ALAC in the group, this is a
completely non-ICANN endeavour - mailing list is hosted by one of the
members and no ICANN money for teleconferences. I haven't seen a request
for staff resources, but perhaps I missed it.

I understand the
interest of potential applicants to have an EoI solution provided as soon
as possible although the board has not yet decided upon, and I welcome
this initiative. On the other hand the approach of this group formation
looks a bit strange to me. From the membership structure they looks lik a
GNSO WG (I wonder whether it has been discussed within the
constituencies/SGs). They also request ICANN staff ressources which are
needed for other activities already in the pipe. Has this already been
accepted by ICANN? Ressources are rare.
Is this the way to
organize the WG-model based work in future? I don't think so.
I thought there is a
commitment of the GNSO as well as the board on how to deal with policy
development issues. If we start it this way we may be confronted with
more particular interest groups in future trying to bypass the GNSO.
Anyway, before we
decide to get engaged we should be clear whether and to what extent the
EoI is of interest for our work.
