RE: [registrars] Separate WLS from Deletes issue
It was nice seeing you and everyone else this weekend.
I'm just getting to read the list today.
Sorry if this message is not timely.
Below, do you mean 30 days before or after expiration?
If you mean 30 days before, then
I suggest WLS subscriptions be also prohibited for all names that
I also agree that a solution to the deletes problem be deployed
at the same time as WLS (if WLS is deployed).
