Dear Dev

IT for Change thanks the gTLD Review Group for giving consideration to 
its inputs.

I did not quite understand that is the remit of this other group headed 
by Avri.... What kind of output/ recs can it produce? Is commenting on 
the overall policy within its remit? Thanks for providing these 
clarifications. parminder
