GAC is still busy drafting their Panama Communiqué, but it looks

like it will contain advice to the board with regards to GDPR / Whois /

Temporary Specification that will contain something like:

1. GAC advices the ICANN Board to take all steps necessary to ensure
   and implementation of a access model that addresses accreditation,
   access and accountability,  and applies to all contracted parties as
quickly as possible

2. GAC asks the ICANN Board to publish status report four weeks prior to

In the rationale, they state "In order to protect the public interest,
as well as the secure,
 stable, and resilient operation of the DNS, the development and
implementation of a
 unified access model is of utmost importance. The GAC considers that
direct involvement
 and action is required by ICANN Org to facilitate and support this."

They will also have advice on IGO identifiers, basically being unhappy that
the board hasn't followed previous advice.
