Hi Stéphane,

I am copying the email below to Edmon Chung, Co-Chair of the JIG. I am also
very curious to learn from SSAC / ccNSO about their concern and how it was
handled during the working process as both were involved in the JIG. I think
with the report produced a general agreeable approach on handling
1-character IDN TLD, and the GNSO shall request the ICANN Board / Staff to
incorporate this into the next version of AG (refer to the JIG suggested
wording), while ccNSO could take their time on the IDN ccPDP process.

Thank you.
