RE: [nc-transfer] Transfers task force and the NC expectations
Please read the Board resolution:
Resolved [02.53] that the Board requests the Names Council to coordinate within the DNSO a comprehensive review of issues concerning the deletion of domain names and possible solutions for those issues and to submit to the Board, no later than 10 June 2002, a status report on that review, with the status report to include any recommendations (with supporting materials) concerning VeriSign's request to modify the .com and .net agreements to allow it to provide a wait-listing service, for a fee, as part of its operation of the .com and .net registries;
Resolved [02.54] that the Secretary is directed to advise the Address and Protocol Councils of VeriSign's request and the Board's intent to consider that request at its Bucharest meeting on 28 June 2002, with an invitation to those councils to submit comments (if any) on the request before that time;
Resolved [02.55] that the Board invites public comments on VeriSign's request and directs that a suitable mechanism be established for allowing comments to be submitted over the Internet to ICANN for at least a thirty-day period; and
Resolved [02.56] that the Board invites comments on VeriSign's request at the Public Comment Forum to be held on 27 June 2002 in Bucharest, Romania.
A few points:
1) You have to read the resolution (not the whereas clauses)
2) A final report was due at the end of June (it is not the basis for ongoing work).
3) It invited the DNSO (not necessarily the transfers task force) to look into the issues.
This will be my last comment on this subject, but I believe that after transfers is resolved, my work on the Task Force is done. If we decide to take up this issue, I will have another representative from my constituency appointed to the Task Force.
