Re: [council] Re: [ga] Meeting Schedule of General Assembly in Los Angeles on November 2

Hello Roberto,

The idea was to have the Working Groups meet either on
Monday evening, or Tuesday evening.  I believe Wednesday evening
is also available.  They will not be overlapping with any of
the other DNSO related meetings.

That possibility was discussed.  Many NC members argued that
later times would be less advantageous for the webcast - as it
would be very late for the East coast of the US, and after midnight
in Europe.  Personally, I will probably be getting alert in the
evening, since it will be my morning (Japan time) so either
one was fine with me.  I personally believe that the schedule
is less than perfect, but it is wrapped around the ICANN board
meeting, and some other pre-scheduled meeting (one is an IANA
ccTLD manager meeting in Monday morning.)

The GA will be held Tuesday morning.

I would hope that everyone understands that there was simply
not enough time to have 1/2 day meetings for every group of
the DNSO.  I honestly think that it is in the DNSO's best interest
as a functioning unit to have the NC meet before the ICANN
board - this was the biggest time clash.  We can do better next
