That's excellent news, that ICANN hasn't let Verisign ram through WLS
as a done deal. Chalk one up for the little guys. All those emails to
the US DoJ might have worked. ;)

I'm reading the TF archives at:


(bottom group) and don't see much about WLS.

Also, how can one (i.e. myself, and others not currently on the task
force) join the TF, or provide input? I'm sure that I'm not alone in
wanting to help the task force do a thorough analysis, and now that
Verisign no longer controls the process (finally!) it is the
appropriate time for others to provide all the background and insights
required that Verisign omits from its proposal.

Also, for Chuck Gomes and/or Louis Touton, can we have a public copy of
the "attached proposal" in Chuck's email to the Board dated March 21?

please advise. There was concern in many quarters that "the devil was
in the details" with regards to many aspects of the proposal, and since
the proposed Registrar contracts with regards to WLS were not present,
one could not properly evaluate the proposal.

Also, I think VGRS should state for the record whether that proposal is
the one we should be evaluating -- if they intend to revise it again,
based on ICANN's analysis, we should be told this up front, instead of
wasting valuable time dissecting a "dead horse".
