Dear All

Greetings. To follow on from Max's speed-of-light sending out of the 
minutes of today's IRP phone-conference, this email is a call for 
contributions to a statement from the DC as part of the open consultations 
in preparation for Vilnius later this year.

Fouad's invitation for ideas and comments for the MAG meetings is pasted 
below fyi so the DC statement also contributes to this side of the process; 
point 4 in particular.

In short, the IRP statement can cover:

1) Contributions that take stock of last year's IGF in Sharm el Sheikh
2) Suggestions for the agenda and format of the Vilnius meeting.

Time is short, so we need your comments by Monday at the latest. I will 
then cobble up a first draft for one more round. The statement has to be 
ready to go by 15 January.

All input welcome on either or both of the two aspects above.
