Jothan Frakes has has kindly offered to introduce people involved with 
Thunderbird to the complexities of ICANN at an upcoming meeting in 
Dublin, Ireland October 18-22, 2015. I realize this is fairly short 
notice, but if anyone is free and interested, you might contact Jothan 
to get together on this. At this meeting "there are sessions on email

One of the goals that I have for Thunderbird is to be more engaged with 
open and public internet standards. That would include not only email 
protocols such as IMAP, but also related standards such as the domain 
name system that ICANN represents. It we are going to take seriously the 
role of being a promoter of open standards, then we need to be engaged 
with the communities that develop those standards. ICANN is one of those.

So if you are actively involved with Thunderbird, please consider taking 
Jothan up on his offer.

I am on the tb-planning list at Gerv Markham's suggestion and wanted to 
see if anyone from our dev group will be attending the upcoming ICANN 
meeting in Dublin Ireland.

I have been involved with ICANN for a very long time and it can be 
absolutely challenging to engage for someone coming in to it for the 
first time - but for any of the TB developers who had an interest, there 
are sessions on email and domain names called Universal Acceptance that 
might be quite interesting.

I am glad to help folks find their way and mentor them through the 
complexities of ICANN if they happen to be interested to attend the 
meeting.  There is no cost of admission.
