Annette, I should be remiss if I didn't point out that there are a  
few errors in your statement below - perhaps you've forgotten, but I  
informed the ALAC quite a while ago that a new website to replace  
alac.icann.org was being built; my staff report for May provided  
further details of what that site would provide, and of course in the  
last few days I have provided additional information. This is long  
before Eduardo's kind offer to act as webmaster for icannalac.org.

Also, I told the ALAC the issue with legal review of contents posted  
by anyone paid by ICANN as long ago as last December - long before  
the project funding request was put through for Jean to be paid to  
update icannalac.org.

Of course if the ALAC wants to maintain the website which was paid  
for by ICANN so that the ALAC has an independent voice, that would be  
great!  As far as I can see, these are not competitive efforts, but  
rather complimentary efforts.
