RE: [registrars] Co-Op Teleconference

Thanks for clarifying this.

Could anyone comment if there is an anticipated cut-off date for other
registrars wanting to join
the Co-Op group and whether there will be a standard legal contract 
distributed for joining the Co-Op group?

Richard - just a point of clarification (and I suppose for discussion on the
call).  After the initial group makes contributions, the additional
registrars joining the co-op should pay their proportionate share of the
total, which should include these initial contributions.  In other words,
all of the member registrars should end up with an equal contribution in
order to be fair to the initial group.

Kind regards, Elana
