[ALAC] Fwd: Re: [soac-discussion] Internet Governance CWG

Dear all,

FYI -- just to keep you updated, after the ALAC met with the NCSG, Evan
Leibovitch announced during the public forum the creation of a joint
effort by both communities to work together to prepare for the Brazil
meeting etc.
David Olive picked this up and discussed it with the ALAC Leadership
Team on the Friday of the ICANN week. He then shared the fact that this
effort was open for every SO/AC to join, on the SO/AC Leadership mailing
list. The responses were quick to ask "how do we join this?" and from
here onwards, Rafik & I have worked with several people to get the train

The update below will give you an idea where we are at the moment. I am
not sure whether this was the original intent since I recall that we
probably thought during the ALAC/NCSG meeting that things would start
small & grow slowly once we had a few position papers on the WIKI but I
guess that with the Brazil meeting only a few months away and with the
Festive Season about to arrive, many felt we needed to act quickly.

Kindest regards,

Hello all,

just a quick update since the last emails on this thread.

Last week's action items were:

This is just to let you know that things are taking shape.

Sally Costerton's GSE department is working on allocating Staff support
for this effort.
The WIKI space referenced above will be open for all with a log-in to be
able to use. I gather that it will soon take shape with help from Staff
& members of the community.

2 mailing lists are being created by Staff.
One mailing list will be open to all wishing to take part in the CCWG.
Completely open etc.
One mailing list will be closed & used for admin purposes solely by the
coordinators & future chairs of this CCWG.
I have suggested this model as it is the one that was used by the DSSA WG.

Populating the open mailing list ASAP will allow us to take the
discussion over to it, rather than crowding the SOAC leadership mailing
list & having a longer and longer CC' list.
Rummaging through the recent threads, I have seen interest from:

Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond 	ALAC - facilitator
Rafik Dammak 	NCSG - facilitator
David Olive 	Staff
Olof Nordling 	Staff
Theresa Swinehart 	Staff
Heidi Ullrich 	Staff
Jonathan Robinson 	GNSO - RySG
Avri Doria 	GNSO - NCSG
Mikey O'Connor 	GNSO - ISPCP
William Drake 	NCUC
Cintra Sooknanan 	NPOC
Louis Lee 	ASO AC
Adiel A. Akplogan 	ASO NRO
Heather Dryden 	GAC
Tracy Hackshaw 	GAC
Patrik Fältström 	SSAC
Robert Guerra 	SSAC
Evan Leibovitch 	ALAC
León Felipe Sánchez 	ALAC
Holly Raiche 	ALAC
Stéphane van Gelder 	NomCom

I have transmitted full details for the above names to the Staff member
in charge of starting the mailing list. Please forgive me if I have not
included your name on this list - this is hastily created from rummaging
through the email thread in my mailbox that's a needle in a haystack.
Self-subscription will be possible once the mailing list is up & running.

Mikey O'Connor has very kindly volunteered to start work on a charter
already. Rafik & I really hope that things can get in full swing before
the end of the week.
I realise there's going to be a lot of questioning about "what? another
mailing list? for what?"
Once the dust settles, I think we'll have a better idea.
That's all for today.

Kindest regards,
