Hello Stéphane,

It's another interesting twist for this meeting.   In general, rollovers from 
meeting to meeting are NOT part of the travel guidelines but assigning travel 
slots to another SG member.  

The exception requesting process is part of the guidelines.  In the past 
rollovers have been provided for on occasion based upon specific exception 
requests.   I recommend that we continue treating these as exception requests, 
and not develop a blanket policy of rolling over any travel slots at any time 
(you can imagine the impact of that).

There are a lot of issues with our current travel process, and I believe these 
are community travel guidelines (not ICANN staff ones).   We'll be updating the 
guidelines for FY11, and I look forward to discussing with you how we can 
incorporate these issues most effectively including the one you raised below.

Hi Kevin and travel DT.

I was wondering if ICANN travel staff had any guidelines as to how certain 
specific cases that arise from Nairobi will be handled. As there are many 
people not going, there will undoubtedly be several unused funding slots. What 
is planned for these? Should SGs assign them to someone else who is going to 
Nairobi, or can these slots be rolled over to Brussels, thereby giving SGs more 
slots than those normally assigned?
