Dear Sir or Madam,

 Please find below the comment of dotSaarland
GmbH on the further new gTLD evaluation process.

 dotSaarland GmbH

(applicant for the string .SAARLAND) 

We would suggest to release the
new TLDs as follows: 

ICANN should prefer the geoTLDs of public
interest (regions, cities, IDNs) in a first batch for the subsequent
evaluation. Most (if not all) of those TLDs should not be contested as
they require a letter of support by the governing authority.
Furthermore, these TLDs are connected to a longtime, tightened sense of
community with a pre-defined demand for domains. 

A second batch should
include all other undisputed single applications. Strings with
contentions should be placed in a third round if the applicants do not
find a way to solve the situation within a given time slot. 

applicants should be given the right to opt-out of the first and second
batch, as some of them may have plans for a later TLD launch. 

you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact

Best regards,

Dorothea Marx
Head of Communications
