Also, we should have an alac-announce list where members of the interested public can sign up for infrequent announcements, such as mailings when we're seeking public comment or have some new development to report. All part of our role in informing the public of ICANN's activity.

I'm starting to lose track of what kinds of comments are archived
publicly, and what aren't.  As far as I see, we still don't have any
publicly archived public comment submission address.  Is that

From experience in the DNSO (and GNSO), publicly archived comments
are quite useful when you're actually interested in getting
opinions, and keeping a clear record of opinions received.  It helps
possible commenters to see what issues have already been raised by
others, and it also encourages them since it provides for a specific
way of, in fact, talking to the public.

PROPOSAL: Unless I'm missing an existing archive of a public comment
address, I'd hereby propose to archive everything sent to
alac-comments, to make that archive public, and to use a separate
address (like alac-comments-private) for private comments -- if
these are needed at all.  (Which I, quite frankly, doubt.)

(Setting up this kind of archive is a technical no-brainer.)
