Update: IDN ccTLD Fast Track Draft Implementation Plan

26 November 2008

ICANN is pleased to release an updated draft Implementation Plan for the IDN ccTLD fast track process [PDF, 265K]. The updated document contains clarifying information about the notion of IDN tables.

An IDN Table is a table listing all those characters that a particular TLD registry supports. If one or more of these characters are considered a variant this is indicated next to that/those characters. It is also indicated which character a particular character is a variant to. The IDN table usually holds characters representing a specific language but can also be characters from a specific script.

With the updated draft document, ICANN is seeking community input about the approach to development of the IDN tables. The comment period for the Draft Implementation Plan has been extended to 7 January 2009 to allow for additional community review of the updated draft document.

Comments on the Draft Implementation Plan are welcome via email to ft-implementation at icann.org . An archive of all comments received will be publicly posted at http://forum.icann.org/lists/ft-implementation/.
