Dear Adrian and all:

We are working on final details of the Applicant Guidebook version 3, explanatory memoranda and other additional documents. We are planning on posting over 30 documents that are being reviewed and formatted. Unfortunately this process is taking longer than initially expected, even with long working evenings and weekends. Apologies for missing the date previously communicated by Peter. We are, however, still within the deadline we need to follow according to the Board.

We are also working and intend to launch a redesigned new gTLD webpage to house all new gTLD information. It is not a stunning design, but hopefully will help people to find information faster.

We expect to post either tonight or Monday. Stay tuned and thank you for your patience.

See you all in Seoul.

Kind regards,

Karla Valente

Subject: [council] DAG v3

Is it just me or were we expecting the DAV v3 by September 30?

In recent communications (Peter's letter to the GAC for example) this was the date quoted.

Whilst I am not too bothered by the delay what does concern me is that ICANN staff have simply left us in the dark as to the progress.

If ICANN knew it was going to be late why not make an announcement to clarify? Why keep us guessing?

Very frustrating for the Community for which they serve.

Perhaps they were too busy celebrating with the US Government to care?

Is it [possible to request a response from staff?
