[nc-deletes] RE: Two Questions for the Deletes Task Force
I have not heard anything further on the WLS. I believe July is the soonest that it could be introduced based on ICANN requirements. You may want to keep an eye on http://www.verisign-grs.com for further information as it becomes available.
I see that John has replied to your second question.
I am writing to you as a member of the Deletes Task Force, to ask you if you could give me an update on the state of play with regard to Deletes policy, and implementation dates.
Specifically, when does WLS come into play? Is there a date or rough date set for its introduction?
And secondly, I've been following the process of .com names releases after expiry in the past months, and there seems no consistency. Some names appear to go on hold for the minimum period provided, and then become available to the public (to date, many of those names put "on hold" between January and about 3rd March have so far become available).
On the other hand, a large number (thousands) of Net Sol names, including names put on hold in January and the whole of February, remain "on hold" and are still no available.
I thought the intention was for one, consistent policy for the industry. Why are the NetSol names being held back?
I'd be grateful for your insights, both on WLS dates, and on the second issue, and thank you for your assistance.
