RE: [council] The issue of "closed generic" TLDs (10 minutes)
Thanks Bruce. In that paper it seems like staff dismisses the idea of not
allowing closed generics or changing anything. That said, something must have
happened at the board level to put that in doubt. What happened during the
retreat to put this in doubt?

Closed generics are also discussed in the minutes of that meeting at:
