Significant discussion on the bylaw provisions on the ASO. Blokzijl wants to remove these until agreement has been found; others want to keep them, so the ASO continues to exist when (1) the new bylaws are adopted, but (2) there is no MoU with the RIRs. Linda Wilson asks about changes between currently effective language (2000 bylaws) and draft text. Lyman Chapin explains the changes, some as being relatively cosmetical (“organization to be created” vs. current ASO), and one being about a GAC representative. Blokzijl: New text, and impossible to return to old text in the context. If there is no MoU with the RIRs in December, then ICANN has a larger problem than just bylaw language. Vote: Cerf confused about numbers, but ASO language remains in bylaws.
