The Chair suggested announcements to the RIR communities so that they can comment on the RT site. HG stated that anyone with concerns can send them to him, and he will bring them to the RT.

B)  WHOIS Review Team (WHOIS RT) Update. At the last meeting WW stated it would be a good idea to report to the ASO AC after the meeting in California to keep the AC members up to date. WW was not available on this teleconference to provide an update.
