I think it would be a good idea to distribute the redlined document withLegal Counsel's changes. Regarding: "5. The GNSO Council shall select the GNSO Chair for a term the GNSO Council specifies, but not longer than one year, by written ballot or by action at a meeting or both. The procedures for selecting the Chair and any other officers are contained in the GNSO Council Operating Rules and Procedures approved by the Board." (p.3) Legal Counsel made this comment: "The inclusion of "both" confuses therequirements - what is trying to be achieved here? It may be better toremove "or both" unless we can reach a better formulation of this." I think one thing we were trying to accommodate is absentee voting.

Several edits have been made. Please review and comment. My inclination is to insert their changes unless there is objection. Thanks a.

I think we are just about finishedand thoughthey have not been council approved yet (hope to do it inSydney), Ithink they are rather stable at this point. It would be great if you could take a look and let us know if anything we have there is inappropriate vis a vis legalrequirements,or if anything is missing. The sooner we know, the sooner we can deal with any changes. Of course I understand that thereal reviewwill be done before the Board takes its vote, however, it would be helpful to know if we really missed the mark anywhere. The latest version can be found at: https://st.icann.org/gnso_transition/index.cgi?proposed_by_laws As of tomorrow morning I epxect to remove the editingmarks (italicsfor recently added changes, line through for things that are to be deleted). You will note that we have not touched the PDP annex yet. That is being worked on in the PPSC. Except for the votingthresholds whichare included in the changes, I think we should be ok asthe PDP rulesdo not affect getting the new council seated. Please forgive the parallelism and extra work that it mayentail, butI am really trying to make sure everything gets done intime to seatthe new council in Seoul. Thanks and look forward to seeing you in Sydney. a.
