    Appendix U Registry Reports Finally Published!!!
    by Richard_Henderson on Thursday October 30 2003, @05:19PM (#12578)

    Hang on - since I last looked, the .info Registry Evaluation Report has been slotted onto the ICANN website, backdated to August 2002 (the date .info apparently submitted it to ICANN).

    .info Appendix U report [icann.org]

    I haven't had time to read it in detail, but it's been over a year coming, so I shall go and have a good malt whisky to celebrate!

    I haven't had time to check if the .biz report has also been put up.

    These reports were defined as essential to the Evaluation Process by the NTEPPTF, and we have waited far too long to get them, but the .info one is certainly there.

    Of course, Afilias live in a parallel universe of spin, and they are unwilling to address the detailed abuse of process which even involved some of their own Directors. To quote their intro:

    "The Sunrise Period and the Landrush Period were very successful and achieved the goals they set out to achieve."

    But alas! No .biz report - the wait goes on...

    Maybe ICANN are in the process of ftp-ing the Evaluation Reports and I've looked too soon!

    There's no sign of a link on the equivalent .biz page to the Neulevel Evaluation report.

    18 months since .biz2B and nothing to report.

    The NTEPPTF said this data was essential - and the Board accepted that - and that was a year ago - so can we have access to this report please!

    Well, that will teach me to check one more time before opening my big mouth!!!

    But the wait was certainly worthwhile! Finally, some acceptance of responsibility from Afilias.

    Afilias' admission that the Sunrise Period was "very successful" and "achieving the goals they set out to achieve" finally and clearly identifies the wholesale abuse of the Sunrise pocess as the result of its deliberate policy.

    Thank you, Afilias...
