Thanks Bill.

I agree with that approach for Eric.

Subject: Final Candidate list & process from here

So the application period is now closed and we have ten candidates:

Eric Brunner-Williams  (Rgy or Rgr?  Not this time?)
* My order of preference for the review areas is security and stability
first, accountability & transparency second, competition third, and
whois last
* I self-identify with the Registrar Constituency, and the Registry
* USA, male

Brian Cute (Rgy)
* I self-identify with the GNSO - gTLD Registries Stakeholder Group
* USA, male

Warren Adelman (Rgr)
* I self-identify with the GNSO - Registrars Stakeholder Group
* USA, male

Mike O'Connor (CSG)
*USA, male
Ron Andruff (CSG)
*USA, male

Olivier Muron (CSG)
*France, male

 Victoria McEvedy (CSG)
*UK, female

Willie Curie (NCSG)
*South Africa, male, NCUC member

Hakikur Rahman (NCSG)
*Bangladesh, male

S. S. Kshatriya  (Unaffiliated)
*Indian, male

Parsing the pool:

Rgy one and maybe two names, Brian and Eric.  I'm assuming RgySG will
put Brian into the allocated slot, so we won't have to review, right?

Rg one and maybe two names, Warren and Eric.  I'm assuming RgSG will put
Warren into the allocated, right?

=>Action item: we have to decide how we're allocating Eric and whether
to hold him over for a future RT, S&S, his first preference.  I suggest
we hold him over and ask him to decide on the SG by that time, unless
you all have enough info to make that call independently.

CSG four names, Mike, Ron, Olivier, Victoria.  They will need to decide
which is their allocated and which two are standing for the competitive

NCSG two names, Willie and Hakikur.  Willie will be our allocated
person.  We'll consult tomorrow on whether to endorse Haikkur for the
competitive slot, he's not one our more active and known people.

Unaffiliated one name, Kshatriya.

=> Action item: Once the four SG's ID their allocated people and
identified their up to two for the competitive slots (Hopefully
Wednesday/Thursday), we are looking at the ET having to "assess" a
rather small pool--Eric if he stays in, the two of four CSG selects,
Hakikur (who'd be competing for the "open" slot) and Kshatriya (who is
alone in the unaffiliated slot).  This should be pretty easy for the ET
to do quickly, and the house vote shouldn't be unduly complicated.

However, there's one last wrinkle, diversity:

It looks like Rgy, Rr have put forth white guys from the USA for the
allocated slot.  If CSG does the same, we have a problem, as our rules
say that unless the pool doesn't allow, we can't have more than two from
the same region.  So CSG picking either Mike or Ron for the allocated
will trigger the ET having to undertake a diversity negotiation with
them to see if they can't perhaps put foward Olivier or Victoria
instead.  Moreover, if CSG does not nominate Victoria either for the
allocated slot or for one of the two for the competitive slot, (and even
if they do and she loses in the vote), we will have no women in a
situation where the candidate "pool did allow".  So here too, we would
then have to go back to CSG and ask for reconsideration, which I gather
wouldn't be easy.

The only way out on gender front that I can see would be to reverse from
what I'd previously suggested re; Victoria.  Yes she's identifiably IPC,
but she declared as an independent.  In order to achieve the diversity
objective, and in order not to have a slot with just one candidate and
no competition, I would think we could be flexible and allow her to
compete with Kshatriya in the unaffiliated slot, and hopefully stay in
at the the end, so we have least one woman to the five men.

In any event Wolf, CSG sort of holds the keys to unlocking the principle
puzzles and potential problems, so I hope you can do a sit down ASAP
with them to sort out the approach. Nominating Olivier for your
allocated slot and either nominating Victoria for one of the two
competitive candidacies OR agreeing (amongst us all) to release her to
the unaffiliated pool are the big priorities now.
