22 February 2011 ALAC Liaison to the ccNSO, Report to ALAC Meeting:
February 2011 ccNSO Council Call meeting notes have been posted and can now be found here:
The Next Meeting of the ccNSO Council will be held on March 1st.
As foreshadowed in my Jan Report the ccNSO has now called for 4 Volunteers to join the Study Group on the Use of Names for Countries and Territories.
This study group was established at the Cartagena meeting in response to the note of the chair of this working group that some of the issues that are raised are considered outside the scope of the PDP ( for example how to deal with meaningful representations of country or territory names that do NOT contain a non-ASCII character or are NOT in an designated language). The purpose of this workin group is to provide the ccNSO Council, ccTLD community and other interested stakeholders, including the GAC and GNSO Council, an overview of the scope and issues associated with the use of Country and Territory names as TLD strings and the scope and impact of alternative action paths on IDN ccTLD and new gTLD processes.
The Study Group's goal is to provide the ccNSO Council, ccTLD community and other interested stakeholders, including the GAC and GNSO Council, an overview of the scope and issues associated with the use of Country and Territory names as TLD strings and the scope and impact of alternative action paths on IDN ccTLD and new gTLD processes.
The statement of purpose for the study group can be found at http://ccnso.icann.org/workinggroups/unctwg.htm.
