[governance] Transition

Vittoria, Avri and others,

I want to clarify that from my perspective the recent discussion has not
been about one coordinator or two, or about Avri as a single
coordinator, but rather to surface some of the underlying tensions and
issues concerning "Internet Governance" and its larger policy context
(including the mode of operation of this caucus), which have been
simmering in the background (and occasionally in the foreground) for
much of the life of this caucus.  

To my mind the development of a charter would go a considerable distance
to addressing a number of those issues.

Sorry, possibly I didn't explain well what I meant. The new working 
group would work out a charter *for the IGC*, not for a new entity; it 
would then get back to the list to get the charter approved. The 
objecive of my proposal was just to get out of the deadlock due to the 
lack of consensus on your appointment as "single coordinator" - not to 
start anything new!
