Thanks Nick.

I think this demonstrates that the Euralo MoU and bylaws need
clarifications, so that the letter is in line with the spirit.

I think the spirit in requiring that an ALAC representative is a member
of an ALS is that the candidate needs several months to get up to speed
with the ALAC-specific  business, both in content and process. This
could be demonstrated by prior activity in ALAC and/or ICANN related
mailing lists, meetings attendance, etc. Afterwards, if the ALS
estimates the candidate meet these criteria, it can use whatever
internal process it see fit to ratify the candidacy and propose it to
the Euralo.

My personal suggestion is that an ALAC candidate should be a member of
an ALS for at least six months before the elections take place.
It is obviously too late for this round, but let us avoid further
possibilities for interpretation before the next round.
