I support this approach. Getting any kind of face to face prior to the
end of the year is going to be a nightmare to schedule.

Tx you for checking into the possibility of a F2F meeting of the STI
Group. I am glad to hear it is a possibility, although the logistics of
bringing all of us together will certain be challenging.
May I offer a slightly different timeframe for the group's work and this
F2F meeting? Let me clarify what was meant, at least by some of us who
proposed the meeting:
- A preliminary report to the GNSO by the deadline (we know they will
expect substantial work and the details and agreement of the Strawmen
will be central)
- Request for a short extension of the Board deadline
- F2F meeting in early January to work on the final report
- Final Report
- GNSO Approval
- Posting for Comments
- STI looks at public comments and makes changes as necessary.
Tx and best,
I checked into the possibility of a face to face meeting for the STI
group, funded by ICANN, to facilitate resolution of the outstanding
issues and the efforts to gain a consensus on an alternative proposal.
We are exploring the feasibility of this request, and wanted to get some
information from you to assess the costs of doing this on a relatively
Specifically, we would try to pick a location to minimize the travel
costs for the participants, and would likely pick an inexpensive locale
in a central location.
Do we have an idea of when to schedule the meeting? We assume that it
would be sometime between now and mid-December. Rather than have a
discussion on the list, please email our administrative assistant,
Marilyn Vernon, with days that you would be unavailable between now and
mid-December. She is cc'd on this email. Please let her know your
location as well.
