I have not yet reviewed the proposed amendments to judge how consequential they are.

However, how does this negotiation process between the RySG and ICANN staff relate to the work of the Subsequent Procedures WG?

Thanks in the advance for feedback,

Best, Philip

For your information.
ICANN, RySG Propose Amendment to New gTLD Registry Agreement

ICANN today issued for public comment a proposed amendment to the base New gTLD Registry Agreement<https://newgtlds.icann.org/sites/default/files/agreements/agreement-approved-09jan14-en.htm>. The public comment period ends 13 July 2016.

Comment now<https://www.icann.org/public-comments/proposed-amend-new-gtld-agreement-2016-05-31-en>.

The amendment proposed today reflects over 18 months of negotiations between representatives of ICANN and the Registries Stakeholder Group (RySG). These negotiations were conducted pursuant to Section 7.7 of the base agreement. The RySG initiated the process. Following the conclusion of the public comment period, ICANN and the RySG working group for these negotiations will consider the comments and submit the proposed final version of the amendment for approval by registry operators and the ICANN board (see Section 7.6 of the registry agreement). If these approvals are obtained, the amendment will become effective upon 60 days notice from ICANN to the registry operators.
