Here is the transcript I made of this morning\'s session Nov. 1, 1999) between Josh Elliott of IANA and the ccTLD managers. Louis Touton,counsel for ICANN, and Andrew McLaughlin, ICANN\'s staff person, also attended, and indeed answered many of the questions.
Andrew McLaughlin - Relationship between ICANN and IANA. I am the only
staff person at ICANN. First task at ICANN has been to try to rationalize
the relationship and the gTLDs. Recognize that doing the same for ccTLDs is the next priority. AM, MR, and Louis Touton will talk to anyone about this. ICANN hoping to establish a relationship of peers.
Dennis Jennings- Top 5 issues of concern to CENTR members: (1) Agreement for root services (2) Relationship between ccTLDs and ICANN (3) Best practices (4) Change of ccTLD managers (5) Funding.
On the second point,I am heartened by your comments for a peer-to-peer relationship. Quite a number of ccTLDs are thinking of a ccTLD organization separately from the ccTLD constituency within the DNSO.
IANA\'s policies are well articulated now, we need changes. There is no way for the ccTLDs to talk to ICANN as one body. Outside of the DNSO, there needs to be a peer relationship between ICANN and ccTLDs outside of the DNSO.
Issues of :
of 2ld’s, pricing, etc
are outside ICANN’s mandate
the NCDNH, and Verisign
believe they should be able to shape cc policy
- ICANN may fail.
eg “Association of Internet Managers
for Country Codes”……
Regional, or Individual?
requires “audit” of regional associations
( to avoid, eg IATLD)
Ignores differences in “size” of internet in regions
( Europe vs Africa)
Argument vs Individuals
Too hard to get global consensus, even in regions
regional associations will act as “lobby” groups, anyway
easier for new cc’s to travel to regional meetingsMembership Structure
an association of 5 region associations-aptld,aftld..
regional secretariats act as executive in rotation 3 ys?
3 reps. from each region form ccBoard
Chair elected fromregion hosting exec.
An association open to all representatives of cc registries- .cn,.tw.,my..
Elect 15 reps to ccBoard, 3 per region
(possibly, elect to regional councils)
Use existing cc Secretariat.Solutions
(like the present Names Council)
Membership numbers “threshold”
3 or 4 Board seats?
