[ga] Preliminary report on the NC June 25th meeting


I am afraid I sent this out on the June 26th from the wrong e-mail address.
It bounced and I did not notice.



June 25th provisional Names Council (pNC) administrative meeting

This is an unofficial preliminary report prepared to inform everybody of
decisions made by the pNC as soon as possible.

It is quite possible that this report -prepared without notes- might have
left out some decisions of the pNC. It only includes the decisions of the
pNC, not the discussion that led to them. Corrections are welcome, please
send them to me. Minutes will be posted as soon as possible. 



On the General Assembly of the DNSO

It was resolved that the General Assembly of the DNSO will be a permanent
body in which, following the ICANN Bylaws, anybody may participate. 

It was resolved that ga@dnso.org will be the official mean of communication
for the General Assembly of the DNSO. The discuss@dnso.org list will be
renamed as ga@dnso.org

The General Assembly of the DNSO may also meet physically, and will do so
for the first time in Santiago on August 24th, 1999.

On Working Group A

It was reported that WG A was progressing very slowly. It was resolved that
the WG Chairs will decide -on the date the report from WG A is due for the
provisional Names Council (July 7th)- if an extension  is necessary to
finish their report.

On Working Group C

It was resolved to create WG C following a proposal from Javier Sola.
Javier Sola will be in charge of creating the WG. The highlights of the
proposal are:

a) That all applicantions received be accepted in the WG.

c) That the WG be divided into three groups that will study 1) New gTLDs
(which, how many, deplyment speed, etc..) 2) Selection procedure for the
new Registry 3) Operation procedures for the new Registry.
d) That the calendar includes two public comments for the Names Council and
one more for ICANN once the Names Council report has been sent to ICANN.

Trade-marks. WG B will operate under the same procedures as WG C. Johnathan

Internal procedures, business plan, outreach and global awarness, which
might be created before the procedures are finished and approved by the
