This is a good new initiative towards greater transparency.  It would be
helpful to have some explanation of what the IANA request queues do.  

I am sure the BC, at least, would like to see similar transparency into the
number of Whois complaints and Registrar complaints submitted to and
resolved by ICANN.

'Dashboard' Allows Window into ICANN Performance

11 January 2008

MARINA DEL REY, Calif.: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and 
Numbers today released the first version of a new 'Dashboard' that will 
offer measurements of ICANN's performance in numerous areas across the 

"At this stage the ‘Dashboard’ has reports from Finance, IANA, and IETF 
request queue. We are looking for community feedback on this tool and 
will expand the reports available over time," said Dr Paul Twomey, 
ICANN's President and CEO.

The 'Dashboard' is the result of a substantial effort within ICANN to 
define measurable results, establish repeatable processes for collecting 
data, and to select and install software.

"This is about continuous improvement, transparency, and accountability 
to our community," Dr Twomey added.

Members of the public are invited to test drive the 'Dashboard' at
