Dear all (but especially those proud to be called Geeks!)

I’d like to create a management list of use cases that people can use to test their systems.

I’ve created a Google Docs instance here - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1i2pI3byK5XXvFVeelWJGHsrjeNU4QLe7q_wXsXWtuwg/edit?usp=sharing

I’ve provided edit access to anyone who has the link.

I would welcome your thoughts on whether this is sufficient, whether it needs more detail or less detail – and if it needs more, please provide suggestions.

For example, in the document we reference TLD – but should be reference LOOOONG TLD?  Should we reference 5 character TLDs (since we know of instances where these don’t work).  She would reference very new TLDs?

Your thoughts, please by the end of the day 15th of October. 

Thank you.
