RE: [ga] Proposed GA Adcom


As I understand it, the current situation is that a proposal has been 
brought forward by the GA mailing list that the General Assembly have some 
sort of administration committee.

Now, (I think that) the GA processes are supposed to work as follows:  Once 
a proposal has been worked up in the DNSO GA, it is supposed to be 
forwarded to the Names Council for consideration and (possible) approval.

It would therefore be inappropriate for the GA to act on any proposal - in 
this case to rush off to create a GA AdCom of any sort - without a 
documented proposal being approved by the NC.

Also, in relation to the actual proposal, it seems to me that the proposed 
GA AdCom would clash with the functions of the Names Council - and if this 
is not the case, it should be explained to the NC.  If it is the case, the 
proposal is unlikely to be approved.  Also, it should be noted that the 
proposal (as I understand it) would likely involve a change in the DNSO By 
Laws, and that would require the approval of the ICANN Board.

I would suggest that the GA proposal be documented and submitted in time 
for consideration at the NC teleconference be held in the week after next 
(date yet to be announced).
