Well done!

Are any of those issues still outstanding now?

I think we agreed to omit anything that doesn't yet have a 
definition, move it to an appendix, and add a note at the top 
telling people about the appendix.  I haven't seen a proposal for 
the exact text at the top..

We agreed on "open, transparent, and bottom-up".

I think he replied.  Omit the reference to Bermuda or ICC rules in

I sent a message with a copy of the agreed text.

Nurani sent a copy of the agreed text.

Nurani sent a copy of Paul's text.  I replied to your suggestion.

Let's just use "Dr. Govind".

As I said last time you asked this, there's a sentence in 
II.B.3.ii that says "members have the right to vote individuals 
onto the governing board".  I suggest to change that to "members 
have the right to elect individuals to the governing board".  
Essentially "vote onto" -> "elect".

I have seen rapid feedback on all issues you raised.

I think all the issues are resolved, modulo exact text for the 
note referring people to the glossary appendix.
