Thanks for the input. Nuance and reordering along these lines and tweaking
along points made earlier can be arranged. This statement is to make a
practical as well as a principled (HR0 contribution to the consultations.
It is self-explanatory that this coalition wants to focus on HR. Practical
suggestions and a willingness to contribute to the next IGF go along with
that, at least as I see it.
Anyway, in order to allow time for the IGC and other IRP'ers to endorse the
new version of this statement, comments and suggestions until midnight GMT.
That allows time for those of you in your working day. So, stand by
tomorrow for the revised version
If people could endorse (those who haven't as yet) asap after that, then
will send it through as late as possible tomorrow night GMT.
One suggestion following on from this: as this statement is a contribution
to the open consultations in practical terms as well as a change to put the
IRP's main goal on record rather than a fully developed manifesto as such,
perhaps we could take this statement as a springboard for more discussions
within the list about concrete ways for IRP to contribute to the Vilnius
meeting; workshops, main sessions, etc etc.
