Dear Sue,

thanks for the honest and open mail. This is not a farewell mail either,
we still have much time to share.

But I'd like to reply to this point:

In the context of the problems you listed in your mail I can only
recommend in trying to get a position at ICANN.

By the way Wikimedia CH and Wikimedia Österreich are members of ICANN
but due to our nature we are only part of the ALAC, so we don't have a
lot of impact. Much in the contrast of having you in a management
position there. That would be really interesting!
