Here are a couple of suggestions to help move things along. First, the NTIA Web site indicates that the comments have not been coming in a flood (http://www.ntia.doc.gov/comments/2009/dnstransition/index.html). Furthermore, anyone (individual or group) can send their comments.
Second, I suggest someone draft a position (for any or all of the Afri* group, and maybe use Nii's suggestions as a starting point) and people can then discuss and finalize that for submission. Please note that the deadline for the submission of comments is in a few days time, June 8, to be exact (http://www.ntia.doc.gov/press/2009/OIA_ICANNJPA_090427.html). So Makane Faye's suggestion for a meeting in Addis in July or Sept. might not help here. You might want to, in formulating your comments, use a format similar to that used by InternetNZ when they submitted their comments on the mid-term review of the JPA (http://www.internetnz.net.nz/issues/submissions/archive/2008/icann-jpa-sub/view).
I hope this helps.

I, for sure, will have a personal opinion
However, we can do some work here on
o has ICANN MOU relationship with DoC provided
useful guidance over the years?
o has ICANN successfully accounted to its community
in open and transparent way throughout its series of MOUs with DoC
o has the Internet remained stable and growing
during tenure of ICANN services?
o has bottomup multistakeholder processes at
ICANN been effective?
o has ICANN demonstrated maturity and is able to
remain accountable to the community?
o continuation of JPA as is or not?
These are some questions that we can answer to make
an AfrICANN submission simpler. What we have consensus on may become a
submission. Any takers?
