    Even ICANN's own Evaluation Task Force hasn't seen
    by Richard_Henderson on Sunday September 01 2002, @05:08AM (#8870)

    Why hasn't the NTEPPTF had access to the "Proof of Concept Evaluation reports" which had to be submitted by Afilias, in accordance with Appendix U of the .info Agreement with ICANN?


    This task force was specifically set up by the Board to Evaluate the New TLDs. How can it have done so without access to the vital data?


    Has this data been fully submitted by Afilias?


    Where is it?


    Why hasn't it been provided, even to the Task Force set up to evaluate it? I have had it confirmed to me by members of this Task Force that these documents have not been provided to them.


    Will Stuart Lynn now please confirm that all the documents have been properly submitted, and will the NTEPPTF please now reconvene and submit a revised report based on this data?


    And will the ICANN Board please make this data available for others too, as specifically allowed under the terms of Appendix U?


    What is the point of a "proof of concept" or an evaluation process if you withhold the vital data from the Registries involved?


    It makes it seem like the Board wants to "go through the motions" without having to address all the details.

    Richard, as you may be aware (although most of us weren't until late in the process), the NTEPPTF wasn't to do the actual evaluations, it was to evaluate how do to the evaluations. In its final report it recommends the use of Appendix U data for such subsequent evaluations. Of course pigs might fly before that process gets fully underway. -g
