Re: [ga] Language Diversity in ICANN working practices

Dear Jefsey at all,

Thank you for your suggestion.  It shows interest and support.

Could I call for support on this suggestion?

The paper I am drafting is not only for the benefit of the ccTLD
Community but for the whole of the ICANN community.

Could I suggest you all you help me in drafting a list with those so
called 300 ICANN/Internet specialised jargon terms.

I will be compilating the list but I need your help, please!!!

Thank you in advance.
