Re: [ga] ICANN Pretends to Solve ccTLD Problem

Also, ISP News misquotes itself when it says that last year ccTLDs
"unanimously voted to withdraw from ICANN". If you follow their link,
what it really says is that ccTLDs "voted unanimously last Friday to
withdraw from ICANN's Domain Name Supporting Organization (DNSO)".

As I understand the situation, the agreement with JPRS formalizes the
situation created when JPNIC, the former manager of .JP, decided to
create a for-profit corporation (JPRS) to handle this task.
All the details have been public for a while already. See the IANA
report in
