Dear Council members,

At the 29 January 2015 GNSO Council meeting, the Council approved the
formation of an informal community discussion group to develop a list of
issues for consideration during the proposed upcoming review of the IDN
Implementation Guidelines. This was in response to a 3 December 2014 letter
request from Akram Atallah and ICANN¹s IDN Program staff, asking the GNSO
Council and community to provide this feedback. Edmon (cc¹d on this email)
has already volunteered for this effort, and I believe that some SGs may be
providing volunteers for this group as well. As noted previously, the
Guidelines address second-level concerns with IDN implementation, including
cyber squatting issues.

Do note that this is not a formally chartered GNSO Working Group, the idea
being that the specific task would be most effectively accomplished if the
community self-identified the list of issues most of concern to them. That
said, it would be very helpful if Sarmad (also cc¹d on this email) and staff
know who from the community will be collaborating with Edmon to develop the
list. As such, please do let us know who in your respective groups and
community will be involved, and if there is anything we can do to help
advance the discussions.

FYI, I am also cc¹ing members of the community who had in previous meetings
with the BVWG indicated interest in participating in community efforts
relating to IDN implementation, in case they or their groups are also
interested in contributing to the pending revision of the IDN Implementation

Thanks and cheers
