    New gTLDs Registry Reports Posted on ICANN Site
    posted by michael on Sunday February 23 2003, @12:16PM

    dtobias writes "Many of the registry monthly reports from 2002, required to be made public after a limited confidentiality period, have now been posted to the ICANN site. This should provide facts and figures of interest to those doing studies of the success or failure of the new TLDs."



    [Editor's note: There's been a certain shortage of new gTLD reports....although if I understand it (someone please correct me if this isn't right), the reports released just now (covering Jan 2001 through Oct 2002) lack the analytic material Mr. Henderson was asking for. Note that even for the material being released the registry contracts required only three months of confidentiality; in the case of the Jan 2001 reports, ICANN -- through incompetence or worse -- added up to an extra 22 months of secrecy and has yet to give a clear explanation as to why. -mf]

    The "excuse"
    by KarlAuerbach on Sunday February 23 2003, @03:15PM (#11230)
    User #3243 Info | http://www.cavebear.com/
    I read on the GA list that ICANN's president had excused the delayed posting of reports on the grounds that he didn't have enough staff to do the job. It strikes me that ICANN's conception of "the job" is rather overwrought.

    If ICANN had a capable webmaster ICANN could establish a simple "gazette" directory that is marked in the web server configuration (or usng an .htaccess file) to be auto-indexed. That way, ICANN could simply drop each document that is received into that directory and it would become immediately visible to the public.

    Personally, I have doubts that ICANN's Imperial Bureaucrat president would allow such an easy course of action - it wouldn't give him reason to demand more staff.
