Dear Council members,

Please be so kind as to circulate the following information to your groups
and communities. As there is a clear need to ensure consistency of the end
user experience, it is important to develop either common language-based or
script-based Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) tables. Based in large part
on experience during the New gTLD Program implementation, ICANN is
developing reference IDN tables in machine readable format, called Label
Generation Rulesets (LGRs) for the second level, for use in Pre-Delegation
Testing (PDT) and the Registry Service Evaluation Process (RSEP).

The first step in this process is the release of the proposed Guidelines for
Developing of Reference LGRs for the Second Level
ct15-en.pdf). A public comment forum on these Guidelines is now open,
closing on 15 December:

ICANN staff involved in developing, reviewing and further updating these
Guidelines based on community feedback will greatly welcome input from the
GNSO community, especially affected parties and users. If you have any
questions, please feel free to contact Sarmad Hussain directly
(sarmad.hussain@xxxxxxxxx), or I will also be happy to forward the questions
on your or your group¹s behalf.

Thank you.
