Melb IT (

How less commercially focused can we go ?

We agreed at the last meeting to allow any interested body to attend
meetings bringing them closer to the old DNS forum meetings !

ADNA wants to work on It has several working groups now that are
exploring the policies behind competition in the commercial spaces, what
rules a DNA should conform to and other technical groups related to the
software to make it work.

What if ADNA does a really good job with in getting competition
with multiple DNAs etc and level playing fields etc etc etc ?

Will ADNA receive support or will the same claims still be thrust at it
that are now. 

If ADNA gets it right will it get support from the people who present are
objecting ?
