Hi Andres,

Thank you very much for this proposal. In my opinion it is a significant
step forward towards reaching a solution. We would like to update the
RIPE community on this progress and get some feedback, and I appreciate
your perspective on a few things I mention below.

I think the format and the governance model is quite clear from your
proposal. However, it would be helpful if we could articulate the
purpose of this Council more clearly, especially outlining the function
that cannot be performed by the executive branch of the RIRs, and using
the existing mechanisms (e.g. a members meeting).

To illustrate what I am looking for, below are some questions I am
pondering myself when thinking about the Council and its role:
- is this is to channel and collate feedback from the community (or the
RIR membership) ?
- is this to enable some oversight to ensure that IANA services still
meet the expectations of the global community (by whatever means)?
- is it all of the above (or none of the above)?

BTW, both points make sense to me, as I can imagine a situation when the
service level requirements cannot be resolved by existing mechanisms
(e.g. through a GM), e.g. LACNIC community is unhappy with the IANA
services, while RIPE is perfectly fine.

I think if we reach consensus regarding the principal points/charter
finding a compromise on its composition and governance model would be
much easier.
