Re: [wg-c] STRAW POLL
Please consider my vote after deadline. I was in holidays from 11th until
today and I have not seen the voting call until now.
If you read my comments on the wg-c report, you could see that my answer

My vote - alternative 1.
Comments - Option 3 was not very clear. With more work in the text of
option 3, may be I'd be able to agree.

My vote - option 1.
comments - again, option 3 is not very clear for me.

My vote - option 2.
Comment - I believe that ICANN trough the board or the NC, should
establishes a minimal charters expressing the objectives of each gTLD to
ICANN should analyze proposals from would-be registries considering
charters proposed for them to decide which organization candidate is
the most qualified to achieve the objectives
