[Ccwg-auctionproceeds] New gTLD Auction Proceeds CCWG

Dear Waudo,

Please note that the charter states that:

“These proceeds are to be considered as an exceptional, one-time source of revenue”.

However, you may also be interested in the opinion that Alan (co-chair of the drafting team that developed the charter) shared in an earlier thread:
“- There *may* be another round or rounds;
- There *may* be auctions
- Any such auctions *may* have their proceeds designated for uses similar to in the first round.

All of these would be the result of GNSO PDP(s) and Board action, and are out of scope for us, regardless of whether we think any or all of this would be good (and I am not advocating any of this here). If all of those were to come to be, then the process we are developing *may* be applicable (again, a decision WAY out of our scope). Nothing that we do should REQUIRE that we must start all over again and re-invent this in such a situation.”

Best regards,

Dear all,
I missed the call but I am impressed by the progress that was made. Reading the action points/discussion notes I think our focus now should be on expanding and finalizing Item 5 - Workplan. I suggest we set a deadline for having the workplan in place and also focus on this item on the next call.

I have a question on scope meantime. Probably those in the group who may have participated in the formulation of the charter could be of help: Is this exercise confined to the proceeds of the first round auctions or do we need to come up with a mechanism encompassing any future rollout scenarios (currently not known). The Charter just refers to "new gTLDAuction Proceeds".

Kind Regards,
