Re: [council] Request to Provide Input to Issue Report on Introduction of IDN ccTLDs
But isn't this comment forum about the entire PDP? While some of the
issues apply, others don't and the general emphasis is wrong.
Two comments come p:
- are you advocating that we not send the appeal to the Board?
- are you proposing that the council, as a group, send a comment on
the ccNSO PDP? If so, perhaps the same group that wrote the proposed
appeal to the board could revise it into a form that is appropriate
for this call for comments.

for an Issue Report to examine the need for a Policy Development
(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 Issue Report and in proposing a time line for conducting each
stage of the ccPDP, the joint ccNSO GAC Issues Paper, the technical

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").

Report, a comment period will open on 19 December 2007 and close on
