This is why the proposals for the nine directors elected by the
at-lkartge membership look the way they do, Nigel. It is the only way
to make sure all regions are presnet with at least one member.

The fact that trhee people volunteered to make a formal and complete
proposal before the next teleconf (next Wednesday) does not mean that
the NC is prevented form discussing the issues surrounding the
elctions, or any other. Most specially whhen to days prior to the
teleconf we have not seen any such common and complete proposal, just
individual thoughts. None of them complying with the inital request to
that group: to presnet a simple and workable proposal to elect the
three DNSOP directors in the time scale we are working with.
Looking forward to your news.
