Subject: JIG motion


I would like to submit this motion about JIG



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); and

Both the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Implementation Plan and the new gTLD process have been approved by the Board of Directors, bringing into effect the JIG charter condition: Upon adoption of either the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Implementation Plan or the new gTLD process by the ICANN Board of Directors, the WG will be closed, unless both the ccNSO and GNSO Council extend the duration of the JIG WG.; and

The JIG identified 3 issues of common interest: 1. Single Character IDN TLDs; 2. IDN Variant TLDs; and, 3. Universal Acceptance of IDN TLDs;  and

The JIG has delivered a first report  on Item 1  “Implementation of Single Character IDN TLD” to the ccNSO council and the GNSO council on date1; and

The GNSO Council and the ccNSO Council approved the report on April 7, 2011 and May 10, 2011 respectively; and

The final report  on the first item of interest was delivered to the ICANN Board on May 11, 2011; and

Two issues of common interest remain from the JIG charter; and

The JIG WG has discussed and proposed the following target timeline for completion of the remaining items of common interest:
       • 2011 Jul/Aug: Stocktaking & Development Initial Report for #3 (Public comments Sep 2011)
       • 2011 Sep/Oct: Completion of Initial Report for #2 (Public comments Nov 2011)
       • 2011 Nov/Dec: Completion of Draft Final Report for #2 (Public comments Feb/Mar 2012)
       • 2012 Jan/Feb: Completion of Draft Final Report for #3 (Public comments Feb/Mar 2012)
       • 2012 Mar: Finalization of Final Report for #2
       • 2012 Apr: Finalization of Final Report for #3
       • 2012 May-Oct: Implementation Follow up


The JIG Working Group is extended through 2012 to complete work items Two (2.  IDN Variant TLDs) and Three (3. Universal Acceptance of IDN TLDs ) from the original charter.
