[discuss] Next Names Council Meeting


Although the Names Council has followed the letter of the law and posted an
announcement of the next Names Council meeting (see
http://www.dnso.org/dnso/calendardnso.html, quite a ways down the page), it
seems to me that the announcement of these important meetings deserves a
wider dissemination.  I would have hoped that the Names Council would have
seen fit to announce their activities via the announce@dnso.org vehicle as

In any case, there will be a Names Council meeting on June 25 in San Jose.
It will be partly face-to-face, but teleconference participation will be
available as well.  As you can see, it's divided into a "meeting" and a
"public meeting", which would seem to indicate that the first one was
closed, and the second one open.  I'm not sure that this is the case,
however - given the general feeling of Names Council members at the last
teleconference (at which I was an observer for the ccTLD constituency) that
meeting should be open unless there was a good reason not to.  So it may be
that the earlier meeting is open in the sense that anyone can observe, but
say nothing, while the later meeting is meant to be an open-participation
meeting.  You may want want to contact a Names Council member to find out
exact details on procedure.

I just thought everyone should know this is happening.
