The GNSO's WHOIS Task Force #2 is chartered with reviewing the current ICANN whois policy regarding the collection, disclosure and transmittal of data.
One of the milestones of this Task Force is to determine whether the data which is collected and disclosed at present should be changed. To be able to arrive at a informed decision we are asking all GNSO Constituencies for guidance on their use of the current data fields.
You can find a short listing of these fields at the end of this document. Please note that this is a complete list; not every registry makes every data item listed available. A more extensive list may be found at:
Specifically, we are requesting your feedback on the following questions:
Please send your reply to: tf2-survey (at) gnso.icann.org.
Responses from constituencies are requested no later than February 16, 2003. Although these questions have been distributed to each of the GNSO constituencies, the task force would be glad to receive responses from any individuals or organizations that have a knowledge or interest regarding this matter. Responses that are not made on behalf of a constituency should include an indication of the author's affiliation and interest in Whois privacy. All responses to this questionnaire will be archived and made public, although e-mail addresses will be obfuscated in order to limit spam.
