on 28 January.

amendment to Appendix G.
Whereas, on 21 March 2002 VeriSign, Inc., the operator of the .com and .net

an annual fee;

coordinate within the DNSO a comprehensive review of issues concerning the

Overview of WLS presented by Grant Forsyth in Bucharest
Whereas, the Board, although very anxious to ensure that action on
VeriSign's request proceeds without unnecessary delay, believes that its
consideration of the request would be assisted by receiving the final report
of the DNSO's bottom-up consensus-development effort, including its views on
the modifications recently proposed by VeriSign;
Resolved [02.84] that the Names Council is requested to provide, no later
than 26 July 2002, its final recommendations, with its supporting rationale
and any separate positions of DNSO constituencies, on the VeriSign WLS
request (including the modifications made on 27 June 2002), so that the
Board may act shortly thereafter.
