RE: [gnso-thickwhois-dt] Chair
All, I am an observer to this group and this is not a personal comment on Marika or anyone else on policy staff, but I personally believe it would be a bad precedent to set to have ICANN policy staff serve as a chair of a policy working group. If you would like, we can take this issue up with the GNSO Council. Until then, I would recommend finding at least a temporary chair from the group of volunteers. Jeffrey J.

After all, from my little experience, the goal of a drafting team is to create the guidelines for the future working group, in accordance with Icann rules. I guess Marika knows them better that any other. Best regards.
