Re: [council] NC teleconf agenda Thursday, October 3, 2002
I must say that I was completely surprised with 14 days,
as far as my memory goes back the Names council always voted
in few days (and for ICANN Board even in hours or minutes
if we recall the 1999 elections and time allocated to each ballot).
The resolutions we vote on have been debated and consulted
Slowing down the current vote is against ICANN interest,
will be useless for ERC report (already in late, was expected around
yesterday), and shows the NC itself in a bad shape.
We should have voted motions on the last call, and actually it was
already an option on 12 September, 3 weeks ago.
