 Hi Rinalia - and everyone 
 In the ALAC meeting, did you manage to discuss the schedule for the 
BA meeting? I am hoping that we will continue with a Multi Stakeholder 
Forum - the two we have had have been really popular and successful 
(with deep congratulations to Rinalia). For BA, while I suggested that 
it would be a good time to look at EWG, it would be an even better 
time to look at the gTLD processes (or lack thereof) and - at this 
late stage - see what can still be rescued. I hope this idea was 
discussed and adopted

 The logical guess would be because the text is being negotiated by 
 parties, Olivier. Alan may know more.
