Posting on this list merely airs your ideas -- ADNA is free
to ignore that, as had happened on this list in the past
with suggestions concerning ADNA's formation.

My understanding is that ADNA has no formal submission process
beyond being a member and placing an item on a forthcoming meeting

From my perspective, off-list negotiations with INTIAA representatives
were in progress to *develop* such a "rough concensus" when ADNA was
somewhat unexpectedly formed.

Since the formation of ADNA was a public event, those groups then
posted to the list to publically announce their position.

Didn't Karl's message just make three suggestions the last few dot

  1. Become less commercially focused.

  2. Alter its structure to allow wider community representation.

  3. Wait until it has the general support of the Australian Internet
     community before laying claim to adopting the control of .AU.

There are two major products that came out of Berkeley:
LSD and UNIX.  This is no coincidence.
