Thanks Thomas for your update.

I just came here, Busan, Korea 2 hours ago, trying to
make regional outreach by attending APNG (Asia Pacific
Networking Group) and AP* (Star) meeting tomorow and
Monday where I will talk about AtLarge, will discuss
regional formation together with some key folks from Asia
Pacific Internet community.

About 2 weeks ago, I went to Beijing and met China's
Ministry of Information and Industry and CNNIC people
to talk a little bit about regional AtLarge formation.
We agreed to keep good exchange of information.

In Asia, we feel it is very difficult to only rely on self-motivated
individuals to form AtLarge, and thus trying to talk with government
and industry to have their support. I know this approach may be
quite different from some folks in US or Europe, but if we are
only focusing on "active" individuals, we may end up with a
very very few people who may claim to represent the whole
Internet users, but I don't think that may work in some areas.

But do not misunderstand, please. We are NOT inviting
industry or government folks to take any lead role or
direct involvement, but good support. We may try to reach
out professionals and experts who may best asses and
represent users benefits - some lawyers, economists and
other scholors, for example.  Of course, your comments
and suggests are very much welcome.

The Transfers Assistance Group had its first meeting by telephone
conference last night.  Unfortunately, Sebastian could not be
reached, so I was the only ALAC rep on that call.

Discussion was extremely constructive. I made the case that the
general portability principles should not just be part of
accreditation and registrar-registry agreements, but that they
should also be included in the registration agreement between
registrar and registrant.  (The way in which to do this is to use
the RAA, which already contains a number of provisions that
registrars must put into this agreement.)

Subject: Actions from 22Aug03 meeting and next meeting schedule

Dear All,
Thank you very much for your time in the meeting on Transfers today.

Actions agreed to were drafts of the following to be prepared in time for
the meeting on September 11, 2pm PT in the ICANN offices.

1) RAA. Draft covering policy recommendation 1, and potentially all the
policies listed as Principles. Elana, Thomas and Dan

Note: as mentioned by Bruce, while working on all other policy
recommendations, it is a good idea to go back and look at the principles as
these affect most the policies. So although they are posted in the RAA, it
does not mean that they cannot be reflected elsewhere.

2) Standard Form of Authorization, by, Bruce involving a couple of

3) Dispute Resolution. This part may need additional work as quite
comprehensive recommendations are made. Chuck, Jeff and Ross on a first

4) For registrars and registries to check with respective constituencies on
the timelines set forth in the policies 3,6,23. Wording of these specific
policies were suggested to be flexible as adjustments might be needed for
example 6 months after launch.

Please remember that Dan, Ellen, Karen and/or myself are available in ANY meetings/discussions/work sessions or others, that you will schedule in each group. We appreciate the help given by all of you and are naturally hence available for any work needed within each group.

Please also let me know if you will be attending in person in the next

Best regards,
