Thanks for your note.
As I indicated when i sent the short update note, over the next week - spare time while still in Dublin and then when I get home several days later, I’ll be producing a more fulsome report of activities, discussions and decisions. That will include specific tasks, owners, and dates.
We have produced some specific work leading up to Dublin which I identified in my pre-Dublin report:
· We are now on the third iteration of our “Introduction to Universal Acceptance” (http://1drv.ms/1G0AB1g <http://1drv.ms/1G0AB1g>). Rather than ‘finish’ this in Dublin (and there are still sections that haven’t even been started), we agreed to break it up into smaller documents which will be easier for us as a group to review and sign-off and get ‘published’ for people who are asking for them. The Definition of UA Ready is one of the topics.
· We’re developing a Test Suite of use cases. We’re also planning on registering names relevant to the use cases and finding a way that smaller developers can make use of the domains. https://goo.gl/sJYm3P <https://goo.gl/sJYm3P> The comment period for this document finished just before Dublin. There were only minor comments. We’ll take this document and register some names that we can use as specific examples.
We should also tidy up the sample text to send to webmaster when people (not just people acting as part of the UASG) encounter a website that doesn’t act like they want it to. The draft is at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Efsao9I6ko4_ohQAxrW_xogma2il6jVrsphA9DHrLVo/edit <https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Efsao9I6ko4_ohQAxrW_xogma2il6jVrsphA9DHrLVo/edit> where you can see we’ve already had translation into a host of languages.
I hope this helps and that you’ll be a little bit more patient while the things that are ready are tidied up and published.

Was anything agreed on to be actually completed before the next conference in February?
> The PDF only references items "to be progressed" rather than things actually being "completed" and the internet community, I think, would like to see "tangible progress" rather than "continuing progress". The conversation between conferences tends to be about items to be talked about at the next conference, whereas at the conferences presentations and slide shows occur about progress to date and in the future, with developmemt of new tasks to add to the development agenda at each conference, but nothing seems to be "actually completed in the present", with the internet community always looking forward to future accomplishments after reviewing the past, with the same conclusion always being "much is still left to do".
> "At the full-day UA Workshop held on Sunday, more than 50 people participated in developing more than a dozen tasks (each with owners and deadlines) to be progressed before the ICANN55 meeting in Marrakesh in February 2016."
> What is the time-frame, if any, for completing any or all of the referenced more than a dozen newly developed tasks, or any task?

> 3) The presentation provided by Avria on Sunday
> 4) The presentation deck used by Dennis on Sunday
> 5) The presentation deck used by Edmon on Monday - which was basically the same as that used by Christian on Sunday with a few more slides about achievements on Sunday.
> 6) The slides used by Rinalia on Monday.
> Many thanks for all those who participated during the Sunday workshop. And thanks, also, to those who accepted assignments.
