Dear Narelle,

It would be useful if you added some extra words here to assist me in
ascertaining what is 'extraordinary'? The working group has attempted to
publish everything it has worked on thus far.

I'm not sure what you mean by this? If you mean membership fees (and
classes for that matter), this is an issue the working group is definitely
finding difficult. The new version of the Constitution coming this weekend,
will be pointing interested people to the sections within the Constitution
that we would really appreciate thoughts and input on. Membership is
certainly one area.

This timeline has been set by NOIE.

My professional understanding is that the domain name system in Australia
requires fulltime effort. The work of the current people involved to date,
has been outstanding, but with the increase in traffic, usage, etc etc etc,
we need a more fulltime, stable and perhaps consistent system.

My personal feeling is that the domain name system needs an overhaul,
particularly in some 2LD's.
