RE: [registrars] Code of Conduct

Thanks all for getting this issue moving.

My recommendation here is to try to keep this WG small and workable.
Obviously, we don't want to turn anyone down if they would like to
participate, but if we can keep it this small, we will probably be able to
get more done in a shorter amount of time.

Let's get the show on the road, and set up a teleconference for next week.
