Hi and apologies if I'm speaking out of turn (not being a full
participating member of the STI team), but I just wanted to make a minor
point that instead of referring to "Constituencies" the STI's reports,
minutes and proceedings ought instead to refer to "Stakeholder Groups".

Zahid Jamil is scheduled to make a progress report to the GNSO Council
on Nov 23.
Please review the draft report. Comments, if any, should be sent by
1800 UTC on Tuesday 17 Nov.
"When this update was written the STI had held four conference calls.
Two each on each of the two heads (TM Clearinghouse & URS) raised by the
Constituencies represented and ALAC have provided their position
statements in regards the issues and the Group is currently working on a
Common Grounds Paper where some issues have reached agreement. This
update will avoid identifying/characterising issues under discussion or
their importance since there may be varying views on these.
There is some interest for a possible face to face meeting to attempt
resolution of outstanding issues or at least to meet once comments are
received on the final report of the STI.
It has been felt by the STI that the time allocated for submission of
the Final Report is not practically feasible if consensus on all issues
is to be effectively reached.
Whereas the GNSO had passed a resolution in its Public meeting at Seoul
on 28th October 2009 stating that âThe GNSO [STI] review team will
provide a final report to the GNSO on or before the GNSO's council
meeting in late November, 2009â. There is consensus within the STI
Review Team that the time available for submission of a final report may
not be adequate in order for the Review Team to submit meaningful and
efficacious report. The Review Team suggests that the next meeting of
the GNSO be scheduled near enough the deadline (14th of December 2009)
set by the Board for submission of the GNSO response, in order to
provide the Review Team with adequate time to effectively complete its
review and submit a final report before the date of the next GNSO
meeting to be scheduled before the Board mandated deadline. However,
the STI-RT intends to deliver its report no later than Monday, 7
