I am on the participants list, and I can assure you,
there are *NO* significant discussions taking place
there. For example, the recent DNSO application was
not really discussed there, it was basically drafted
in a small committee based on the discussions that
took place at the Monterey meeting.
What you *are* missing, however, are important tidbits
that are occasionally released. For example, I have
attached a recent posting below . . .
NOTE ==> When I was in Barcelona, we had a debate over
the number and types of mailing lists to have. Some
wanted to restrict membership to prevent any disruptive
players from posting. Others argued for an open list.
The compromise was to have two lists -- one completely
open, and one that was open to attendees of DNSO events.
The intent was to have two *open* lists, one that was
immune to disruptive behavior (at least, that's how
it was presented).
What we got was one restricted list that is being used,
and one open list that is not. To correct this situation,
I suggest that all postings to "participants" be mirrored
to "discuss." In the interim, I and others can continue
to forward informative postings like this one . . .
