Maybe we are starting to see some positive steps from ICANN towards delegation:
We received a revised Registry Agreement, Specification six that includes the requirements for Name Collision Occurrence Management and Report Handling.
ICANN made an announcement that included the statement that collision “…assessments and SLD lists will be posted to the specific TLD’s registry agreement page on the ICANN website. The first of these will be available before the end of this week.”
ICANN reached out this week and requested a detailed list of contacts for legal, media, financial, emergency, CZDS, TMDB, abuse, URS and compliance.
We are still waiting for ICANN to comment on the TMCH launch issues highlighted in our 12 October 12 journal.
Oh, and we are still waiting for the Welcome Pack!
