Re: [registrars] Code of Conduct

Greetings everyone,

Did I hear my name called? :-)

In Cairo we had discussed setting up a "Best Practices" task
force, one of the issues to settle being the Code of Conduct.
I had volunteered to help organize this overall task force, but
of course welcome support in driving this particular aspect, the
Code of Conduct, forward.  Being in Tokyo makes communications
sometimes difficult, so having someone in North America to help
coordinate is a big benefit.

I did send out an email to the mailing list asking if anyone wanted
to get involved.  This was following a draft by Jeff (mentioned
below) which was sent to a subset of Registrars.  I don't believe
this has been submitted to the list yet, so if Jeff doesn't mind
I will forward that draft.

To date, I believe the following Registrars and members have
volunteered to participate:

Bob Connelly
Lauren Gaviser
Ross Wm. Rader
Alexander (I apologize, my font garbled your last name, is it Bauer?)
Erica Roberts
Jeff Shrewsbury (interest by drafting a first version :-))
Josh Elliott (by being cc'd on Jeff's mail)

I think this is a good group to start with.  If anyone wants to join,
or if I missed someone please let us know.  I think we could now
move on in the process as we to break down what we have to do,
and identify our goals and milestones.  The next steps may be
to  determine exactly what we are to accomplish, and perhaps
set some guidelines, and maybe set up a conference call
sometime in the near future to discuss a course of action.
