Hello All

I've been working on an ICANN Stakeholder Tool

which allows for the ability to search by country: At-Large
Representation, ccNSO membership
GAC Membership, Fellowships, Accredited Registrars and also do an
regional or worldwide analysis on stakeholders

However, whilst information on ICANN website relating to registrars
and the ccNSO are consistent, allowing the Tool to use "live data"
from ICANN's website thereby requiring no manual updating from the
Stakeholder Tool, the same can't be said for At-Large's website where
ALSes in the 5 RALOs are listed.

This is because the ICANN At-Large website uses inconsistent HTML when
displaying the ALSes in the region. When there are gaps in the ALS
information (no wiki page, no ALS website), the HTML is different.

I've tried to expand on this in a Google doc at

in an attempt to explain this in greater detail and would appreciate
thoughts, comments on this if what I'm saying is understood properly.
If so, then this can be added to the Technology Issues page for
raising with ICANN IT staff.

Kind Regards,
