Dear Cheryl and all,
I think it's a great opportunity to highlight the importance of having a
intereaccion higher among registrars and ALSes (users), as there are a sea
of deep water between us. I Will be happy to make the motion that the ALAC
could make a statement supporting the 9 recommendations of the WG but with
emphasis on recommendation 2.

Thank you Silvia and Alan  I would like  the ALAC  to put in the short
statement as you have outlined / proposed, especially in the light of the
education / outreach to registrants issues  which *IS* an outcome of the
PEDNR work we have done...  So  if it is possible for the draft of such a
brief statement to be prepared  for ALAC to discuss (and I trust endorse) in
our meeting(s)  next week  I will most happily put
that forward as a motion...    Or second it if Sylvia wishes to put
