[ga-full] Re: [ga] About GA membership again......
William and all assembly members,
As I stated in a just previous post on this thread regarding such a document,
I know that a memorandum does exist and was posted on the old IAHC
list. This may not be considered a "Official Document" by some. The DOJ also
has a copy as I sent it to them long ago now as well. However I don't believe
it would be a very powerful piece of evidence, as the facts of the relationship
between the IANA and NSF are generally known and well documented in
several E-Mail list archives already.
