We are pleased to report that IBM notified us on Friday 4 October that TMDB testing is complete. The exact wording of the email is:
“I confirm that all tests are ok and have asked to forward your certification request to ICANN.”
We understand that IBM will now send an email notifying ICANN of successful test completion. The process moving forward isn’t entirely clear and we’re hoping to get some answers from ICANN. In the meantime we continue to wait for the delegation process to commence.
We have not had any ‘next step’ communication from ICANN since PDT was completed on 24 August. Further, we have still not received the Welcome Pack, nor have we received the Media Kit.
