I am resending this as I have not yet received a reply.
Since it is my understanding that your and 1net's role is not a substantive
or "editorial" one the absence of an indication of how you will comply with
these requests/nominations is most surprising.
I await a suitable reply from you, presumably noting that a mistake was made
in relying only on nominations from narrow and self-selected organizations
in the categories of "academic" and "civil society" and that our nominations
for the Steering Committee will be given appropriate treatment by, we would
expect suitably transparent and accountable processes.
