Actually, it was just Polio and Hepatitis twice. ;) For help for 
and at the GA meeting, I owe thanks to a number of people -- Kevin 
Hurley and Krystal Sewell from Salzburg Seminar/Markle Foundation 
for travel support and Adam Peake for local organizing; Marilyn Cade 
for joint coordination of the Deletes/WLS session; the panel 
participants Ross Rader, Chuck Gomes, Dan Halloran, Louis Touton, 
Esther Dyson, Pindar Wong, Alan Davidson, Jeanette Hofmann and Hans 
Klein; of course Thomas for the usual excellent cooperation and for
setting up the IRC-to-web scribe system; Glen de Saint Gery 
from DNSO Secretariat, John Crain from ICANN and to the local 
organizers. Thank /you/! 

>Finally, if I understand Alexander's notes correctly (I didn't listen to the webcast at that point of time), the DNSO may also have to meet a two-week deadline (i.e., Easter holidays) concerning the Redemption Grace Period. This will most likely be clarified when the verbatim minutes are posted by ICANN.

Yes, that's correct. If the DNSO is to surprise ICANN with any
input for the technical steering group for the redemption grace 
period, it has got fourteen days.

Best -- and rather exhausted -- regards from Accra,
/// Alexander
