1 - So does that mean you are dropping the Chair/vice-Chair and
retaining the current two Co-Chairs - like a number of people asked you
to do, or what?
2 - What do the words "working group" mean? Do you mean "AfriNIC
Community"? If so - please use that more familiar terminology.
3 - Can you please tell the community when last where the two co-chairs
so stuck in making a decision - that effectively - that was their
decision. i.e - the never made a decision? To the best of my
understanding and knowledge, this has never happened but I may be wrong.
I was going to add a fourth point but I think what you are really trying
to do is get some discussion going?
