A request to Provide Input to the Issue Report on Introduction of IDN ccTLDs 
has been posted at http://www.icann.org/announcements/announcement-19dec07.htm

The comment period ends at 25th January 2008.

At its meeting on 2 October 2007, the ccNSO Council resolved to call for an 
Issue Report to examine the need for a Policy Development Process
(ccPDP) to consider:

    1. Whether Article IX of the ICANN bylaws applies to IDN ccTLDs associated 
with the ISO 3166-1 two letter codes, and if it does not then to establish if 
Article IX should apply.
    2. Whether the ccNSO should launch a PDP to develop the policy for the 
selection and delegation of IDN ccTLDs associated with the ISO
3166-1 two-letter codes.

The Council requested that, in preparing the Issue Report, the Issue Manager 
identify policies, procedures, and/or by-laws that should be reviewed and, as 
necessary revised, in connection with the development and implementation of any 
IDN ccTLD policy.

The Council, also at the 2 October meeting, appointed Bart Boswinkel as Issue 
Manager by the ccNSO Council, responsible for producing the Issue Report.

The ccNSO Council has asked Bart Boswinkel to consider, in preparing the Issue 
Report and in proposing a time line for conducting each stage of the ccPDP, the 
joint ccNSO GAC Issues Paper, the technical limitations and requirements 
including the IDNA Guidelines, and any other matters that the Issue Manager 
considers to be of relevance, which includes the intermediate results and final 
outcome of the work of the IDNC Working Group ("fast track approach").

To identify matters that are potentially relevant to the Issues Report, a 
comment period will open on 19 December 2007 and close on 25 January 2008. 
Comments can be submitted via email and will be archived for public review. The 
email address for comments and link to the archive will be published at the 
opening of the comment period.

In raising matters for consideration, it will be most helpful if you would:

    1. State your name and affiliation;
    2. Briefly identify the issue, concern, or idea you want to raise;
    3. Explain what the issue, concern, or idea;
    4. Explain your specific interest in the matter raised;
    5. Indicate why you think it is within the scope of the questions raised by 
the ccNSO Council (see above) .

It would be most helpful if you also identify any relevant publicly available 
documentation, for future reference.

Please note that it is not necessary at this stage to make suggestions to 
resolve any issues relating to an overall policy or answer any questions.
