RE: [registrars] Shanghai Agenda
All very good questions, and the answers are:
(1) Representatives from PIR have said they will be available for the
registrar meeting to answer transition questions, representatives from
Afilias the back-end registry provider will also be available to answer any
(2) I have heard through my "unofficial" rumor mill that things are
progressing with .PRO, I will ask RegistryPro for an update.
(3) I will add the new Whois reporting mechanism to the agenda topic, as
this appears to a useful mechanism going forward.

At the time of the meeting on Monday, there will be 9 1/2 weeks prior to
ISOC/Afilias going live with the transitioned .org. Will there be a
presentation by Afilias regarding what operational changes/modifications
registrars will need to make on January 1?
Also, will .pro be presenting any updates on their schedule/release? In
Amsterdam they referenced February of 2003. We're now a month closer (than
we were in Amsterdam), so is an update on this TLD warranted?
Will ICANN be giving a statistical update of the progress of the Whois Data
Problem Report system they've implemented at

I should have the agenda for Shanghai's meeting finalized by Monday after
the next Registrar Constituency Executive Call. Current topics on the
agenda: ICANN reform; update on transfers and Whois Task Forces; initiation
of deletes task force; .org transition; and whois update (CRISP/Universal
Whois). An additional topic that I believe is worth wild to add in new TLDs.
Bret Fausett has recently published an article on principle' concerning the
new TLD process, see http://www.lextext.com/newTLDdiscussionpaper.html. I
believe that it is a document that many should read as I believe it is worth
the constituency backing it. If there are any other topic anyone would like
added to the agenda, please let me know.
