[I-coordination] Nominations to /1Net Steering committee & Brazil Meeting Organising commitees

Dear Adiel, John and all,

How can we set a date to indicate nominees for a number of seats that
haven't been established yet by the Brazilian Government? By the press
release, the only announcement was that we will have four meeting
committees, no number of seat per stakeholder group was established. (

I know you are in a hurry with the best of the intentions, but let's take
one step at the time and try to focus first on establishing the
coordination group for 1net in the most inclusive manner possible.

Once it's set, maybe, it will help us to consider to the other steps with
less turbulence.

all the best
