I understand from conversations in Carthage that .aero received its first questionnaire from Sebastien Bachollet 3 days ago so his New TLDs Evaluation Process is finally underway.
This is yet another delay of a process which has now been spun out for years. Note the schedule Sebastien himself offered here, promising to be finished by now:

Bearing in mind that the NTEPPTF submitted its report in summer 2002, and the urgency of carrying out this evaluation, why are registries being approached now, at the end of October 2003, exactly when Sebastien promised his report would be published?
