Hello Barrack,

Thanks for your response, by your message you are saying you support going
out of ICANN mission as well. Just curious, do you have specific example of
outreach carried out by AtLarge that can said to not be within the scope of
ICANN mission?

Perhaps it's good to also note that by the message of the Board seem to
imply that going out of ICANN mission May first require updating the
mission itself and that may open WS1 v2.0.
