Thanks Stephane.  FYI, this is why I spent so much time on the Council call trying to get the words "forward to the Board" removed from the motion.  As I stated during the GNSO Council call last week, one SO to a Cross-SO group should never send a report to the Board without hearing from the other SO.

Thanks Lesley,

I am copying the Council on this email in order to pass your message on. Do you have any idea of the timeframe for you to get the desired clarification from JIG and SSAC?

Hi Stéphane,

I am advised that Patrick Fallstrom has raised some concerns with some of the language in the JIG Final Report, as member of the SSAC sub-group.

In the circumstances, the ccNSO will ask for clarification from JIG and SSAC, before it takes any formal position/adopts the final report - would you be able to hold off the passing the report to the ICANN Board and staff whilst this is sorted please?

Kind regards,

At its meeting yesterday, the GNSO Council passed the following motion on the JIG. As per this motion, I wanted to inform you of the GNSO's approval of the JIG's final report, as it pertains to new gTLDs.

Happy to answer any questions you may have. Please pass this on to the ccNSO as you see fit.



Motion on the JIG Final Report on Single Character IDN TLDs

The Joint ccNSO/GNSO IDN Working Group (JIG) was created by mutual charters of the ccNSO (http://ccnso.icann.org/workinggroups/jiwg-charter.pdf) and the GNSO (http://gnso.icann.org/resolutions/#200907);

The JIG identified 3 issues of common interest: 1. Single Character IDN TLDs; 2. IDN Variant TLDs; and, 3. Universal Acceptance of IDN TLDs;
The JIG has issued an Initial Report (http://ccnso.icann.org/workinggroups/jig-initial-report-26jul10-en.pdf) for public comments (http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-2-27jul10-en.htm), and thereupon a Draft Final Report (http://ccnso.icann.org/workinggroups/jig-draft-final-report-04dec10-en.pdf) for public comments (http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-04dec10-en.htm), and have incorporated the comments into, and has reached consensus on the Final Report on Single Character IDN TLDs;

The JIG recommendations are consistent with the GNSO Final Report on the Introduction of New Top-Level Domains (http://gnso.icann.org/issues/new-gtlds/pdp-dec05-fr-parta-08aug07.htm), including the GNSO IDN WG Final Outcomes Report (http://gnso.icann.org/drafts/idn-wg-fr-22mar07.htm) and the GNSO Reserved Names WG (http://gnso.icann.org/issues/new-gtlds/final-report-rn-wg-23may07.htm) on the issue of Single Character IDN gTLDs; and,
The JIG recommendations suggested implementable measures for the acceptance of Single Character IDN gTLDs.

The GNSO Council approves the JIG Final Report on Single Character IDN TLDs, and forwards the report to the ICANN board and staff for its implementation into the next version of the New gTLD Applicant Guidebook as it pertains to the new gTLDs.

Resolved further, that the GNSO Council instructs the GNSO Chair to communicate its decision to the ccNSO Chair.

RESOLVED FURTHER, that the GNSO Council hereby expresses its appreciation to the JIG for their hardwork, and look forward to receiving further reports on "IDN Variant TLDs" and "Universal Acceptance of IDN TLDs".
