Dear Asmus,


Thank you for getting back.  We would request for IP member who could share the technical view point on how the root zone motivated conservatism and other principles will apply on variant sets (from IP’s perspective), and give early feedback by identifying the challenging cases from among the variant sets identified by the Arabic GP.

Dear Sarmad,

ICANN staff has forwarded a request sent by you on behalf of TF-AIDN for interaction with the Integration Panel at the upcoming TF-AIDN meeting at Istanbul.

We have discussed this among the Integration Panel members and with staff and we do not quite know how best to respond to this request.

For one, some of our members are absent this week and not reachable for discussion. Others are not available during the dates of your meeting. The Integration Panel also has its own F2F meeting scheduled the weekend before in Los Angeles, making for rather difficult travel schedule even for those members who would otherwise be available.

Your request mentioned that TF-AIDN felt that expertise in "Arabic and DNS" would be useful, but the material forwarded to us by staff did not contain any further specifics on the issues to be covered or the objectives that you would like to achieve by such a meeting.

By its nature, the expert members of the Integration Panel were selected to have expertise that is broadly applicable across all scripts; as is commensurate with the role of panel in integrating the many LGRs produced by local Generation Panels, whose members encompass individuals with strong linguistic background and expertise in the subject script.

For specific Arabic expertise, we can recommend Tom Milo as advisor. The integration panel has used him as advisor on Arabic matters; his expertise as designer of Arabic typesetting and font technology, we found, gives him a uniquely valuable perspective. (If he were to attend it would be as advisor to the GP and not as representative of the IP.)

As for DNS expertise, it would help us if we could better understand the likely concerns and issues you expect to resolve in the session.
