[gnso-restruc-dt] Re: [council] GNSO Improvements Board action and follow-up efforts
Hi,Based on the following excerpts from Denise's message it seems reasonable to schedule a meeting of the Restructuring Drafting Team. I will ask Glen to try and find a time for this meeting. I will also add this topic to the agenda of the meeting to be held by the council on 13 August.

The Board also discussed ... and acknowledged that Staff is posting a complete set of Bylaws Amendments for public comment. The Amendments, which have been posted, reflect the Board's recent decisions and other GNSO restructuring matters necessary to seat the new Council.
Please note that these Bylaw Amendments (Version 2) address a number of issues that impact the work of the GNSO Restructuring Work Teams. Because these proposed Bylaws include provisions that the GNSO Restructuring Drafting Team did not review during its work, Staff posted two documents to assist the community in its review. One document highlights the differences between the GNSO proposed Bylaws proposals (<http://icann.org/en/general/proposed-gnso-council-bylaw-amendments-notes-comments-03aug09-en.pdf >) and the other is a Staff Explanation for some of the more substantive amendments included in Version 2 (<http://icann.org/en/general/proposed-gnso-council-bylaw-amendments-explanation03aug09-en.pdf >). These include a discussion of issues such as: changes to Annex A; additional voting threshold for certain contracting parties; and procedures for adopting the GNSO Operating Rules and Procedures.
We encourage the GNSO Restructuring Work Teams to review and discuss these materials at their next meetings, and to provide comments during the public comment period, which closes on 23 August. The Board expects to act on a comprehensive set of amendments at its 27 August meeting.
