Dear Colleagues,

During our wrap up session at ICANN63, I had committed to share with you
some further thoughts in relation to whether the Council should consider
submitting input to the public comment forum on the Initial Report of the
new gTLD Auction Proceeds CCWG. Unless there are any specific concerns or
issues in the Initial Report that the Council believe should be flagged
from a Council perspective, I would like to suggest that the Council submit
a short note thanking the CCWG for its efforts, welcoming the Initial
Report and noting that GNSO SG/Cs have been encouraged to provide input on
the Initial Report. I would be happy to draft something if you would
support this course of action. Do note that the public comment forum closes
on 27 November so any statement would need to be agreed on via the mailing
list as soon as possible.

Similarly, the Council discussed the recent Board decision to allocate part
of the auction proceeds to the reserve fund. Staff kindly followed up with
further information in relation to this decision (
https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/council/2018-October/021987.html) as
requested. I am not sure whether there is a further desire to discuss this
issue and/or consider undertaking potential action, but I would suggest
that this is considered separately from the new gTLD Auction Proceeds CCWG
as it is not within its remit to reconsider or change the Board action.

I look forward to receiving your feedback,


Erika Mann

GNSO Council
