Which is correct, I'd say. We (as in PrivSec WG) have already supported
this issue before, so we naturally are the patron for this issue.

You are not. Your theme proposal on the privacy of voting has already been
written and has my full support. (I'll re-post it to this list in a minute).
I just noticed it is not yet listed at
http://www.writely.com/Doc.aspx?id=bbfcskzpsx44x. This might be because
the fields in the proposal don't have content yet: "Mandate, Main actors,
Priority for treatment in the first annual meeting". You can not expect
Robert Guerra to re-write it for you (or us).
I was asking for a different theme proposal, following up on the "Global
Privacy Forum" proposal this Working Group had already submitted in
February (I think before you joined the us). If we want to be taken
seriously, we should to do some follow-up on this, especially as it has
gathered significant support in the data protecxtion commissioners'
community. But this piece still needs to be written completely.
Then in the end, we as PrivSec WG can support three proposals, which is
what the IGF secretariat is asking for:
- Digital Identiy
- Privacy of e-Voting
- Global Privacy Forum
Is this ok for everybody?
