1. What is done
The dnso.org service is set up (the deadline was 11/06/1999).
The notes of meetings in Berlin by Fay Howard and Antony
Van Couvering are on line. The agenda for the first Provisional
Names Council teleconference, scheduled for 11 June is on line.
Javier Sola made a great job to write some pages.

The Provisional Names Council members (those elected 
by 3 constituencies in Berlin, 27 May 1999) are listed,
within each constituency dedicated main page, as well
as in the main page of dnso.org.
On request of Roberto Gaetano, the "ICANN region" was added
for each person.

Two mailing lists are ready (and archived):
         (official announcements from the Names Council;
          anybody can subscribe, only DNSO secretariat may write)
         (general discussion; anybody can subscribe,
          only subscribers may write to this list)
Four addresses for official comments to the Names Council
are provided. All comments are archived:
       Comments on the WIPO report 
       Comments on the new gTLDs 
       Comments on procedures, business plan, outreach/awareness, etc... 
       General comments when there is no specific address for a topic:
