    There are some changes in the new combined charter
    <http://songbird.com/ncc/ncc-charternew.txt> that seem to have come from

    *Further, membership is limited to organizations that are not also
    *members of other DNSO constituencies. We recognize that some
    *organizations that are non-profit and engage in non-commercial
    *activities may be eligible for other DNSO constituencies, but in
    *order to focus the efforts of the NCDNHC, such organizations are
    *eligible for voting membership in the NCDNHC only if they elect not
    *to join other constituencies. They may, however, join the NCDNHC as
    *observer members.

    Where did "observer members" come from and why was the other wording cut?

    Is the inconsistency between the "observer" wording and "non-voting" in the
    paragraph that follows it deliberate?

    Perhaps I lost some email while traveling, but the last message I think
    sent to our group on this subject was by me on Wed,16 Aug 2000, Subject:
    Re: [ncc-charter] Re: charter - question and some suggested new

    Needless to say I disagree with the new paragraph.
