Very good initiative, Alissa. People are already starting to write about this and it is increasingly incongruous to present the ICG as an independent (of ICANN) initiative but have to constantly refer to ICANN-run websites as the authoritative source of information about it.

Subject: [Internal-cg] Centralized information portal

We have talked now and again about providing a centralized web site where anyone could go to find information about all of the community processes where transition work is taking place. I’m wondering if we could start standing this up before the IGF so that we have a place to point people to when we’re there.

From the protocol parameters side, the IETF already has a dedicated page with most of the relevant links: <http://www.ietf.org/iana-transition.html>. Perhaps the one missing link is the draft charter of the IETF working group that is forming to work on the transition proposal: <http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/charter-ietf-ianaplan/>. We could copy those two links over to the centralized portal or take some selection of the ones on the dedicated page and post them on the portal page.

I know there are similar pages some of the RIRs are using (e.g., <http://www.lacnic.net/pt/web/lacnic/iana-transicion>). Do the RIR folks think we could gather up the right links and information within a week or so? Could the folks participating in the CCWG on the names side do the same? And any others who are participating in other processes that have been started?

Do the secretariat folks think we could get a simple page stood up with separate sections for these links and information next week?
