Dear all,

This is to inform you that the CCWG on new gTLD Auction Proceeds has
published the May 2018 edition of its newsletter on the group’s wiki space:

*About the CCWG new gTLD Auction Proceeds*

The new gTLD Program established auctions as a mechanism of last resort to
resolve string contention. Most string contentions (approximately 90% of
sets scheduled for auction) have been resolved through other means before
reaching an auction conducted by ICANN's authorized auction service

and community are expected to be working together in designing and
participating in the next steps addressing the use of new gTLD auction
proceeds. It should be recognized though that these proceeds are to be
considered as an exceptional, one-time source of revenue.

The CCWG was chartered by the Address Supporting Organization (ASO), the
At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC), the Country Code Names Supporting
Organization (ccNSO), the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO), the
Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC), the Security and Stability Advisory
Committee (SSAC), and the Root Server System Advisory Committee (RSSAC) to
propose the mechanism that should be developed in order to allocate the new
gTLD Auction Proceeds. Following approval of the proposal(s) by the
Chartering Organizations, it will be submitted to the ICANN Board for its
