No objection to this but skeptical that things will slow up after April 12; for
some of us the bandwidth demands may then increase!

As you may have noticed from lack of traffic on our mailing list, we are
struggling with getting our volunteer's time and attention these days. I am
quite proud we made as much forward progress as we did in January and early
February but we seem to be in ever-increasing conflict with the many effects of
the new TLD application period. As you know I've talked with a number of you
and we've collectively talked on the call about the immense work load many are
under at the moment. We lost one of our co-chairs to this issue directly.
This is an exceptional time in our industry but I believe that once the
applications are in there will be a period where people are more available
again. The approval and processing period of the applications provides us with
some respite - although we will all have our regular "day" jobs still. As I
result I suggest we suspend our efforts until April 16th when we would
reinitiate our meetings. At this point I think we can accelerate again and
make up for the lost time. Our recent new approach is more efficient and will
just a little time from our volunteers, I believe we can catch up to our
original intended schedule (in terms of results).
My question to the group is, do you agree this is a practical suggestion or do
you wish to suggest another alternative?
Wendy, if the group agrees, we would ask you to communicate this schedule
adjustment to the council on our behalf.
