[council] Way Forward on DNSO Review
To the Names Council:
At its meeting on 13 March 2001, the ICANN Board considered the DNSO
Review Report submitted by the Names Council and passed the following
The Board has received the DNSO Review report from the Names Council,
and other materials on the subject.
The Board also is informed that the Names Council has planned to
address the results of the review in its business plan for 2001,
beginning with an interim committee to establish terms of reference
for further action.
Therefore it is resolved that:
[Resolution 01.28] The Board asks the Names Council and other sources
to separate their proposals into those that improve operations of the
DNSO as it is constituted today and those which may result in changes
in the structure of the DNSO and/or major changes in its functioning.
[Resolution 01.29] The Board encourages input related to changes that
improve operations of the DNSO as it is constituted today no later
than April 16, 2001. Further Board action on the basis of that input
will be scheduled at the end of that period."
In accordance with these resolutions, Names Council, working group,
constituency, and general assembly input related to improvements to the
operations of the DNSO as it is constituted today should be submitted by
16 April either to the web-based public comment forum at
<http://forum.icann.org/dnsoreview1/> or by sending an e-mail to
