[registrars] FYI: Notes form informal DNSO meeting on Thu27

Hi all,

PSA notes from the Informal DNSO meeting 27/5 when most of you had already
left Berlin

PS: BobC, please note that this time I put "from". But don't get used to it,
plz ;-)


Forgive any duplicate postings.

Below are the notes from the informal DNSO meeting held 27/5 in Berlin.  This 
did not meet ICANN notice requirements for an offical DNSO meeting but with 
many participants still in Berlin, the opportunity was taken to discuss 
potential work items and to structure an agenda for the next DNSO General 
Assembly in Santiago, 8/99.

For those who were not present, the meeting, hosted by CENTR, was announced 
one day earlier during the General Assembly of the DNSO, held as part of the 
ICANN events in Berlin. Many attending the General Assembly agreed that there 
was a need to progress some key issues including items relating to the 
structure and operational details of the DNSO itself and to begin preparations 
for the next General Assembly.

The suggested work items are listed in the notes together with the name and 
email address of the person who volunteered to be the focal point for work on 
those issues.  Anyone who wishes to contribute work on any of the items should 
contact the volunteer focal point.  The work list is not exhaustive and I am 
sure that others topics will be put forward for discussion at future meetings.

Kind regards

Fay Howard

Informal DNSO meeting 
Maritim Hotel, Berlin
27/5/99, 9.00 - 11.00, 
 Participants: See list below

(All proposed initially constituencies were represented other than gTLDs)
1. Introduction

This meeting, hosted by CENTR and chaired by Dennis Jennings was open to
anyone interested in participating in the General Assembly of the DNSO. 
The purpose being to have informal discussion on ways to progress the
establishment of the General Assembly, to identify potential work items and to 
a structure and agenda for the next General Assembly meeting in Santiago,
24-26 August 1999.
2. Communication  

It was pointed out that the ICANN bylaws do not specify who chairs the DNSO 
and how often they meet but it was felt that physical meetings cannot be too 
regular due to cost of travel. A good system of Email posting and a Web site 
is required.
AFNIC volunteered  to run a DNSO Web site for the time being with links to all
constituency sites  for liaison for cross-constituency liaison. It is hoped to 
be able to have the site available in a number of languages and volunteers are 
sought to mirror the Website in their own language.
Any recommendations or work items can be announced and placed on the DNSO 
Website for review of all constituencies and GA members.
Elisabeth Porteneuve of AFNIC is to liaise with Armada Abril regarding use of 
DNSO.org domain name for this purpose.
Mailing lists will also need to be established which AFNIC will also 
facilitate. Members list subscribe:
 3.  Work Items for the DNSO

Those present were asked to suggest potential work items for the DNSO.  In 
order that important issues could be addressed quickly, volunteers were 
requested to become the focal point for any wishing to contribute work or 
ideas on the issues identified. It was stressed that the list was not 
exhaustive but would help to initiate work and of which progress could be 
reported at the next General Assembly of the DNSO in Chile.
The issues and the focal point with whom others interested in contributing can 
communicate were:

WIPO recommendations:  Jonathan Cohen <jcohen@igs.net>
DNSO Communications: Elisabeth Porteneuve <Elisabeth.Porteneuve@cetp.ipsl.fr>
GAC & GAC  liaison : Jim Higgins <jhiggins@netedge.co.nz>
(As the GAC communique effects the DNSO it was felt that it should be passed 
to the DNSO for comment and the DNSO recommendations on the issues addressed)
Registry/registrar issues: Bill Semich  <bill@mail.nic.nu>

Bylaws:  Bill Semich  <bill@mail.nic.nu>
	    Jon Englund <jenglund@itaa.org>

Schneider of SWITCH (.CH) <c-wg@centr.org>

Fay Howard agreed to circulate this information widely to ensure that as any 
interested party has the chance to contribute to the work on the items 
Elisabeth Porteneuve will publish the list of contact points for each work 
item on the DNSO.org  Website as soon as the technical aspects of the transfer 
are complete (no later than 11/6)

Those volunteering to act as points of contact for work items we asked to 
generate a brief progress report in good time for the next DNSO General 
Assembly which will take place 8/99.

3. Next DNSO General Assembly 

Schedule: Next public ICANN meetings take place in Santiago, Chile, 24-26 
DNSO General Assembly will take place at this event and a mechanism is 
required to create an agenda to ensure a structure for getting work done.
Those volunteering to act as points of contact for work items were asked to 
generate a brief progress report by 14 July (6 weeks before the meeting). At 
this time, a call for additional agenda items can be issued giving 2 weeks for 
input before announcing a draft agenda on 28 July (4 weeks before the meeting).
4. Other issues discussed

Some expressed the opinion that it was necessary to get the Names Council,  
and elected representatives, established as soon as possible. It was 
understood that the ICANN board were likely to announce approval of the first 
constituencies later that morning, possibly on an interim basis until 
elections could be held by all constituencies.
It was suggested that a first full Names Council meeting be held in Los 
Angeles in conjunction with ICANN events to be held there in November 1999.
