  1. I am not sureI will be attending but in case I don't, would the following issues please be raised:

    • Given the AoC, and its requirements on Whois, what are the time lines?
    • What has happened/is happening on the Whois Final Report
    • An update on compliance audit, including Verisign's refusal to participate in relation to .net
    • An update on WEIRDS: Will it include names as well as numbers in providing differentiated access
    • An update on RAA negotiations, looking particularly at:
      • defining the standard of accuracy required (or, for Michele, the data quality)
      • enforceability of Clause 3.7.8 - is the wording being tightened (or explanations of what the requirements mean for registrars)
    • Are we closer to requiring a thick Whois for everyone
