hi bill and all

we would also support a CS meeting..

in response to bill's note about giganet and timing  - i can see 
we're going to have some challenges ;)..

carlos and i met here in lisbon to discuss the APC council meeting 
(which we'll hold prior to the IGF nov 2-9)

which we will then follow with a one day public event on low cost 
connectivity/access - as an IGF pre event, that will also feed into 
the agenda proper (somehow)

that is scheduled for Nov  10th - and i really wouldn't like for that 
to clash with a general CS event - that said, i know no-one wants to 
have events clashing, but not sure what options we have

we all want to make the most of the IGF event in several (connected) 
ways - but, i don't think we can hold events much earlier than the 
10th (and get folks attending who are attending the IGF) - we may 
have to live with some cross-over - but the earlier we can talk 
specifics, the better.. to ensure we all can make the most of the 
various opportunities

having all events in the one place for example, would be a good start..
