  Are you implying that there are some agreed upon or clearly mandated
set of rules being prepared to be implemented here Roberto?

  Two lists are no necessary to fulfill these functions, nor should they
be considered for arguments that have already been clearly and precisely
discussed and debated upon.  In addition I would also remind you
Roberto, this was not your stated original intent nor is it the actual
intent clearly stated in the "Rules Proposal" which Harald presented.

  This should of course be a "Choice" and not necessarily a requirement.
As I recall one can subscribe to the "Announcement" list and therefore
also be a member of the DNSO General Assembly with full voting
privileges.  Is that not also correct Roberto?  As such, the members
are no paying as a "Membership Fee" the obligation of subscribing
to the DNSO GA mailing list presently....
