With all of these people coming out at the last hour and claiming that
ADNA is broken is the meeting still on!

If the meeting is on - will it actually acheive anything ?
Is there any common ground on ADNA that the .edu.au side and the ADNAites
can find. 

Can any suggestions be made by those who do not like the ADNA propossal
for something different.
If the MoA says that .edu.au, csiro.au and the other non commercial
domians can motor along as normal where is the problem. If this is written
to the rules what is wrong !

ADNA as I read it is there to put a formal structure behind what kre is
doing now. With all of the not for profit groups involved surely this will
safegauard the .au namespace.
