Dear Adrian and all:

We are working on final details of the Applicant Guidebook version 3, 
explanatory memoranda and other additional documents. We are planning on 
posting over 30 documents that are being reviewed and formatted. Unfortunately 
this process is taking longer than initially expected, even with long working 
evenings and weekends. Apologies for missing the date previously communicated 
by Peter. We are, however, still within the deadline we need to follow 
according to the Board.

We are also working and intend to launch a redesigned new gTLD webpage to house 
all new gTLD information. It is not a stunning design, but hopefully will help 
people to find information faster.

We expect to post either tonight or Monday. Stay tuned and thank you for your 

See you all in Seoul.

Kind regards,

Karla Valente

Is it just me or were we expecting the DAV v3 by September 30?

In recent communications (Peter's letter to the GAC for example) this was the 
date quoted.

Whilst I am not too bothered by the delay what does concern me is that ICANN 
staff have simply left us in the dark as to the progress.

If ICANN knew it was going to be late why not make an announcement to clarify? 
Why keep us guessing?

Very frustrating for the Community for which they serve.

Perhaps they were too busy celebrating with the US Government to care?

Is it [possible to request a response from staff?
