Eric, I haven't looked at the Redline and Blueline versions that you 
are talking about, but there is no error (that I am aware of) in my 
report of what was approved.

The IDN item was not in the WG's proposed charter (ie what Rafiq 
proposed to Council). Debbie Hughes (I think) proposed an amendment 
to add it. Cannot remember whether that was taken as friendly or 
passed, but it doesn't really matter. Wolf-Ulrich Knoben proposed an 
amendment to Jeff's new charter which included the IDN point. That 
amendment did not pass, but ultimately that one item from it was 
again proposed by Zahid Jaamil and was accepted as a friendly amendment.
