Hi Glen,

Thanks for passing these along.  Have they been told that they'll need to resubmit applications after the 18th that address the additional GNSO requirements (assuming Council approve those)?  

Either way, these early apps point to a tweak we should make to the Proposed Process.  We don't presently say anything about how apps will be allocated to the up to six slots.  Perhaps we don't need to specify all the gory details, but at a minimum it would be helpful if the text asked applicants to say which SG, if any, they'd like to be nominated by.  (If having been asked they still give no preference the Evaluation Team or Council—TBD--would have to make a determination in accordance with a procedure still to be settled and proposed by the DT).  In these cases we have a CORE person and an IPR lawyer so maybe it's straightforward, but maybe not...

One other thought: would it perhaps make sense to post complete applications to the web and then direct people to them there, rather than emailing zip files around between the secretariat, council, SG chairs, SG members, etc?  And beyond the transactions costs issue, there's also a transparency dimension—the apps should be accessible to the public, as envisioned by ICANN's call.

If applications are received prior to finalization of the GNSO endorsement process on 18 February, it would be helpful if the applicants seeking GNSO endorsement were informed that additional GNSO information requirements will be identified on 18 February and will be requested at that time along with the CV and motivation letter.
