Recall from ICANN 65 meeting topics in Marrakesh:

Name collision analysis project (NCAP): July 2019 OCTO start an open RFP process to engage a contractor. Discussion Group preparing a second deliverable: definition of name collisions, to be ready for public comment after ICANN65.

SSAC organizational review: skills, diversity and membership committee processes

DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) & DNS-over-TLS (DoT): some potential deployments of DoH and DoT may impact traditional policy control points in DNS resolution. Standardization on how DoH and DoT resolvers are configured in applications and operating systems is still ongoing. For registry and registrar operators there is currently little impact from DoH and DoT. It is too early to say what the impact of DoH and DoT on users will be. The need for DNSSEC and QNAME Minimization has not changed.
