Re: [Re: [[wg-e] website discussion, etc.]]
Yes but it would be okay I think to discuss with the Public Relations firm if

Jeff and all,
a few points to consider;
1. Committee E is of DNSO, not ICANN.
2. We need to work on the outreach on DNSO primarily, and recomment to ICANN
3. DNSO NC is too tied up with the forthcoming election, and it would be
difficult to review on Committee E until LA Meeting.
4. let's try to come up with the (interim) report to be posted early october,
4 weeks ahead of DNSO NC Meeting in November. additional recommendation
to ICANN would be fine, too(any volungteer?).
