Hi Veronica

Thanks for bringing us the Youth SIG letter.

I find it interesting that this brings up also an important question which
is the management of community resources.

Even though ICANNWiki only sponsored by ICANN, not in its bylaws or
anything like that, it amassed a great number of collaborations from
community members knowledge, over the years. An organization which is
mainly driven by volunteers.

It seems to me the organization has a role as "guardian" of that knowledge
too, which it has been doing acting as a supporter.

So this brings up a question not only related to ICANN but the preservation
of institutional memory and volunteer work.

I do hope the SIG Youth letter is heard and this situation has the best
solution possible.
