    Item 5: Re-assignment of .net
    by Anonymous on Wednesday May 05 2004, @10:43AM (#13501)
    Item 5: Re-assignment of .net
    - recommend establish a subcommittee of the Council
    - establish list of issues to consider and terms of reference (via ICANN
    staff manager)
    - review Namescouncil recommendations with respect to .org
    - collect constituency statements

    Bruce Tonkin reported that Paul Verhoef, in a letter, had formally requested
    the GNSO Council to consider the .net reassignment.
    Kurt Pritz stated that there were weekly meetings at ICANN in Marina del Rey
    to discuss the .net succession plan. The goal was to publish the process for
    selecting a registry operator by June 30, 2004 and it would include the GNSO
    effort which would have to be accomplished rapidly but could be after June
    30, 2004. The scope of the GNSO was to develop criteria for independent
    evaluators to use in deciding who the registry operator should be.
    Bruce Tonkin stated that the .org statement made by the DNSO Names Council
    on 17 January 2002 could be a useful starting point but the focus of .dot
    org would be slightly different from that of .net.

    Council had 3 options how to handle the situation:
    1. Council committee as a whole
    2. Council sub committee formed by one representative per constituency on
    the GNSO council
    3. Initiate a policy development process and form a task force

    Grant Forsyth asked how the GNSO Council contribution would it be considered
    if it was delivered after June 30, 2004.
    Dan Halloran explained that on day X the draft proposal, which would include
    mention of criteria proposed by the GNSO, would be published but in fact the
    criteria could be submitted at a later date.
    Marc Schneiders commented that as price was important, any process should
    take criteria for offering services at a lower price into consideration.
    Kurt Pritz, responding to the tender date, said that at least 9 months was
    foreseen which would include the GNSO process, 3 months solicitation, 3
    months evaluation, 3 months negotiations and awards and transition period.

    Christopher Wilkinson excused himself and dropped off the call

    Suzanne Sene, for the Government Advisory Committee, (GAC) commented that
    the GAC had recently created a new GNSO working group which combined the
    gTLD and Whois working groups and she would convey the .net reassignment
    question to the group for their input.

    Bruce Tonkin proposed forming a sub committee of the GNSO Council, with 1
    representative per constituency of the Council, to review the .org material,
    draft a set of terms/conditions and criteria for .net consistent with the
    ICANN mission and core values, seeking constituency input via the mailing
    lists and having a draft report for consideration by the Council at its May
    6 meeting with the final report to meet the June 30, 2004 deadline.
    By April 9, 2004, Council members should have notified the GNSO secretariat
    of the constituency representatives and a meeting would take place in the
    week beginning April 12, 2004.

    There was general support for a sub-committee of the GNSO Council with the
    possible inclusion of experts on the committee.
