Hi all,

I am glad to submit today the motion for the approval of EPDP Final Report
Please find attached the motion and the draft final report. That version of
the report is being currently reviewed by EPDP team members during this
week - "quiet time". You will find below a cover letter from the EPDP
leadership team giving more details in that regard.

The motion may need to be amended in due time to be in line with the level
of support for the recommendations in the Final Report.

Best Regards,

Rafik Dammak

Dear Councillors:

We are pleased to present this Draft Final EPDP Report Final Report of the
Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data.

The purpose in sending this draft Final Report is so that you can become
acquainted with its layout and contents in advance of the release of the
Final Report, expected on 20 February. It is hoped that this early release
will facilitate your review of the final document.

The EPDP Team is grateful to have two additional weeks for its
deliberations.We are using the first week as a sort of “quiet period” to
review the draft Final Report and have scheduled meetings for next week to
reach conclusions on open issues. So we expect so substantive and
non-substantive amendments to the report.

With regard to the level of consensus, the report indicates those items

   - The Chair has indicated a consensus level and the EPDP Team has had
   the opportunity to review and comment on that designation
   - The Chair has indicated a level of Consensus and the EPDP Team has not
   yet had the opportunity to review and comment on that designation
   - The Chair has not made a designation yet because the issue is still
   open for some discussion.

In many (nearly all) of the open recommendations, we are very close to
final language but we have attempted to be conservative in the consensus
designation and so have left some of these recommendations with no
designation as of yet. The language you are reading in this report is close
to final.

Sections that still remain open are designated with brackets. The next
steps for those sections are highlighted in yellow.

We will also conduct a final Consensus call on the entire document when the
report is final to identify any issues raised by the interplay between the

Finally, and there will be more about this when the final report is
delivered, this work product represents a significant sacrifice in time and
effort by the working group members and, more significantly, a willingness
by them to collaborate, cooperate, and compromise for our common goals.

Best regards,

EPDP Leadership Team
