Hello All,

I have updated the agenda with the topics that have been requested by
Marilyn Cade and Philip Sheppard since the first draft, and also added a
couple items at the end for ICANN staff reports on the review of the
transfers policy and an update on staff appointments.

Item 6: Contention for domain names at gtld registries
- motion to initiate an issues report

Draft resolution 

Whereas the high demand amongst registrars on behalf of their
registrants to register specific domain names that become available for
re-registration at the registry  has lead to unforeseen strains on the
ability of registries and registrars to manage their business

Whereas this affects the service level that registrars can provide to
their customers and the meaning of ICANN accredited as it applies to

Council resolves, to request the ICANN staff manager to write an issues
report (as specified in annex A to the ICANN by-laws) on the "Problems
caused by contention for domain names made available by a gTLD registry
", so that Council can subsequently decide if a policy development
process would be appropriate.

Item 7: Transfer of domain name agreements between registrants
(secondary market issues)
- see http://www.icann.org/announcements/announcement-21sep04-1.htm
- seek information from ICANN staff on complaints raised by registrars
or registrants, and other Internet users, and determine if appropriate
to request an issues report

Item 8: Review of Transfers Policy

Item 9: ICANN staff update
