Jefsey - 
  The above sentence _might_ have made sense if you had said 'to involve the GAC 
  in the Coalition (1net) preparation" (since that appears to be the purpose of 
  the Internet Coordination resolution), but: 1) that was not necessary since the
  resolution was directing the CEO to work with other organizations to assess if
  even having some form of coalition made sense, and 2) the concept of Sao Paulo 
  almost certainly did not exist at the time, since if it had, it would have 
  been discussed two weeks later and been part of the Montevideo Statement.

  (in any case, the NetMundial <hnetmundial.br> has a quite direct government
  engagement process, including a "Council of Governmental Advisors" which
  will welcome all government representatives interested to participate and 
  contribute to the meeting.)
