This is a topic for potential resolution during tomorrow's Board call.
The original draft IDN Guidelines were endorsed by the Board back I
believe in June. In the briefing documents provided to the Board from
staff we have been advised that there was a public comment period, see
Based upon this public comment the registry working group published a
final draft of the IDN Guidelines that incorporated that commentary.
It is my opinion that the necessary public consultation has occurred and
I am inclined to vote in favor of adopting these resolution tomorrow if
presented with a resolution, although I will not make a final
determination until hearing the staff briefing and my fellow directors
In connection with the reviewing of the Board briefing documents, I have
also consulted with Cary Karp to better understand the issues.
So I hope that answers your question, and shed a little light on the
homework the Board has to do prior to our calls :-)

Are these guidelines going to go through the normal open review
period before the board endorses it? Or has that already happened?
