what's going on with IDN.IDN?

...if you can be more specific then that would help.

There are many things going on at different levels - here are a few main topics....is there anyone in particular interest?

- We launched the IDNwiki's for evaluation of the IDN TLDs that were inserted in the root last week.

- We have the policy development groups active on developing policies and processes for allocation of IDNs.

- We have the IDNA protocol under revision and the revision of the IDN Guidelines following that.

...

Tina

Reply to: IDN.com to IDN.IDN - Possible Scenario? -

I actually just replied to an email on the same topic from a user on this forum yesterday - so my reply might be somewhere else on the forum.

If/how you would translate an existing gTLD into an IDN TLD, and if so, would the operator be the current registry operator or a new entity are all policy questions.
These policy decisions are not made by ICANN staff but are being dealt with by the GNSO (with some assistance from the GAC, ccNSO and ALC that all are working on IDN policy questions).

The GNSO is the Generic Names Supporting Organization that is tasked under the ICANN Bylaws to generate policy recommendations for the gTLDs. More information can be found at http://gnso.icann.org (please let me know if you need more details about the work of ICANN’s supporting organizations and advisory committees).

(similarly there is a ccTLD Supporting Organization (ccNSO) and a Government Advisory Committee (GAC) working on the policies on the cTLD front).

IF it is decided that the exisiting operator of .TLD should operate some version of ".IDN-TLD" then there is the question of how that is done. Aliasing, which would mean that <domain.TLD> and <domain.IDN-TLD> goes to the same registrant - or some other way with sunrise rules, or first-come-first serve -- is all open questions as well.

I understand the concern and interest from those who have registered <IDN-domain.TLD>, but unfortunately I am not able to help with much guidance yet. We have to wait and see what the policy decisions are going to be.

---------------
What's the Hindi Word for Dot-Com?
http://www.idnforums.com/forums/1374...ighlight=Dname (What's the Hindi Word for Dot-Com?)

so, while this indeed was great coverage and a great story, I am not sure what other questions are to be answered in the thread on that topic (that I did not answer above)?

If you want normal use of IDNs then help us define what 'normal' is and go to that evaluation forum that is set up to cover user experience and expectations. That is, http://idn.icann.org

----------------

Dingbats banned? -
http://www.idnforums.com/forums/1384...light=Dingbats (Dingbats banned?)

I might need to take a closer look at this one. However, if all you are asking is why symbols can't resolve in your browser - then that is because your browser implemented the IDNA protocol that does not allow for resolution of symbols. The fact that the name is registered may have to do with the testbed that was initiated back in 2001 - however in this testbed it was never (to my knowledge) a promise that the IDNs would work. I beleiev that all gTLd registries are following the IDN guidelines under their contract with ICANN, today, that is, no registration of symbols. If you believe otherwise please let me know and I will passs that on to our complaince team for investigation.


So this was a rather quick reply to some of the topics asked for above - I hope it answered all questions, but please let me know if you have any follow-up questions or concerns.

Tina

Re: Welcome Tina

I guess another thing that pops up is
Why do press releases refer to IDNs as "coming out by the end of 2008".
Together I'm sure we as a group have invested hundreds of thousands in what we believe to be IDNs.
Because of this many view current IDNs as a test, &/or something that could possibly be phased out even. These statements seem to come from ICANN itself so many believe they will wait till these "real IDNs" come out next year.

I only see this in English, here in Japan they promote the IDN.jp as this is what you've been waiting for.

Tina, welcome to the site. I have one question that's been on my mind for a while:

As registrants, what routes do we have available to affect these policy decisions?

Re: Welcome Tina

Welcome, Tina.

I would also like to reiterate what Olney has stated.

Many of the forum members here, have invested heavily in IDNS...
when many mainline domainers, were bocking at these domains, and those that would have a belief that they would/could be successful.

Without this commitment to IDNS, by the members here, and on other IDN forums, over the last few years, it is doubtful that they (IDNS) would be in the position they are today.

That certainly must count, in any future decisions, by ICANN or their governing bodies.

Kindest Regards....Steve.

IDNs are amazing for people who cannot speak English. I see a bright future with them. What Steve has said is absolutely true. Without us, IDNs would be nowhere near what they are today. If only I could forward you 10-15 PMs/E-mails I've received from others who truly "hate" IDNs... you would know what I'm talking about. We've developed these IDNs and caused a mini-awareness. It would be great if we could know what was going on and be included and thought of with any future decisions.

Hello Tina and welcome to our forum. Very much appreciate you stopping by and answering questions.

1) Wondering if you have any guess of the timeline for policy decisions that will give us the final outcome regarding idn.com, idn.net etc. and idn.idn. Or will that be on a country by country basis.

2) Will Verisign be given the rights to any equivalent of .com in idn version?

3) Verisign put forth the proposal for DNAME. Can you tell us the pros and cons of DNAME implementation from your perspective?

4) Why is that there is little mention of the fact by ICANN that IDNs are "live and working" today within the existing internet system?

Thank you!
