I would like to submit this motion regarding the JAS milestone report.



The GNSO council and ALAC established the Joint SO/AC Working Group (JASWG)
on support for new gTLD applicants in April of 2010; and

The Working Group released it  Milestone Report posted for consideration by
the Board, Chartering Organizations and at-large Community. This
report documented
the completion of work as defined in the orignal charter and requested an
update to the Working Groups charter, and

The GNSO and ALAC, separately, renewed the Working Groups charter with
additional work item in February 2011, and

The Joint SO/AC Working Group received and discussed the public comments,

The Joint SO/AC Working Group has completed the work as defined in its
extended charter and published a second milestone report (
on 8 May 2011 covering those chartered items (
http://gnso.icann.org/resolutions/#20110113-1) entitled JAS Milestone
Report. and

The GNSO council does not wish to delay the start of the new gTLD
application process, and

The GNSO council does not wish to delay implementation of support programs
for applicants from developing regions,


The GNSO Council thanks the members of the Joint SO/AC Working Group for its
efforts and its dedication to completing the work on such a tight schedule,

The GNSO Council request that the report be put out for community review as
soon as possible,

The GNSO Council approves forwarding the  second JAS Milestone Report  to
the ICANN board for review and approval, and

The GNSO Council request ICANN staff begin working on implementation of the
recommendation pending Board approval, and

The JAS Working Group continues working to deal with any issues that may
arise in the upcoming review by the community, the  Board and from the Staff
in the process of implementing the proposals, and

That the JAS Working group publish their final report after this review

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