I have no dog in this fight, but, I will offer a fourth possibility which
may or may not be seen as an improvement. I encourage the
community to consider. I neither support nor oppose any of
the above suggestions, nor my proposed fourth alternative.
D) Implement the ne process right now in all aspects except the
election of the co-chairs. Instead of electing co-chairs immediately,
have the board appoint interim co-chairs to serve until the
conclusion of successful elections at AfriNIC-14 in 2011
for two co-chairs, the one with the most votes getting a
two year term and the next most votes getting a one year
+ very nearly complies wit the policy as written.
+ enough time to organize a fair election in 2011
+ does not require a hasty election in 2010
- we have interim co-chairs appointed by the board which
may be a minor subversion of the intended policy process.
