The agenda was outlined and the conduct of the meeting was explained.
Dr Sang Hyun Kyong was introduced. He spoke briefly of his involvement with the ICANN Board and expressed thanks for being welcomed to this Open Policy Meeting.
- AC update
The presenter gave an update of AC activities including new RIR criteria, and revision of RFC2050.
- Voting procedure
The presenter outlined the procedure for electing the new Address Council member, to fill the seat due to be vacated by Professor Wu Jianping on 1 January 2002. The term for this seat is three years.
- Open microphone
The Chair called for comments or questions from the floor on any issues relating to the operation of the ASO.
ASO Document series
Concern was expressed with relation to the creation of an ASO document series. It was suggested that it would be more appropriate for common registry documents to be published through the existing RIR document series. It was argued that the ASO should only coordinate the cooperation between the RIRs rather than taking its own initiatives through a process which is currently not well defined.
It was noted that the concept of the document series is not for the ASO to create documents. Rather, it is intended that the ASO will coordinate document creation through the RIR procedures. It was argued that the existence of the independent document series may help to ensure consistency of the policies, outside of the RFC series.
No further discussion.
The Chair noted consensus for the voting procedure outlined previously.
- Candidate speeches
Candidates were invited to speak. Others were also invited to speak on behalf of the candidates not present.
The Chair reminded the meeting again of the voting procedures. It was stressed that the deadline for ballots would be 11:00am.
There were no further questions or discussions.
The election result was announced later in the morning (during the APNIC Member Meeting). The successful candidate was Kenny Huang, who accepted his election.
