  Well the process of online elections with their reference to the
Archived URL you provided actually stated over two years
ago and has been ongoing on and off sense that time.

  However for the purposes of getting something accomplished
along the line of Online Elections for any and all stakeholders/users
this venue, the DNSO GA list is one such place where such
work can be accomplished before the Bucharest June 24th
ICANN meeting.  I would add that these discussions be
paralleled at least on the At-Large list as well as that is the
most important area of interest for such global online elections
that can effect the Motion #2 recently passed.

  In this interest than, yet again, the method used in Joanna's
reference the CIRA held elections for all of canada from
Domain Name registrants ONLY for the dotCA TLD
registry...  However for Bucharest June 24th, we should
address any and all stakeholders or interested parties
in the DNSO as well as the yet to be decided upon

  Good point and good basic approach here if Thomas and Alex
will not disrupt or otherwise object and we stay within the
present DNSO GA voting rules...

  This is too late a date.  The motion or Motions should be passed
at least a few days before Bucharest June 24th...
