Good news. ICANN could not launch this time because consultation on version 4 is not complete. This indicates there will be no version 5 as previous speculated and that a decision will not wait until the next public meeting. Indeed, he is committed to calling a meeting as soon as the GNSO has got its ducks in a row. This really does mean soon.

The final Guidebook will be issued sometime prior to the next ICANN meeting set for Colombia in early December.

At that point it will go to the board for approval.
But I hope he misunderstood. It would be nice if we don't have to wait until December.

I understand something similar happened to a Russian member of the committee who ended up giving them all a right dogging.

First 21 minutes are important and surely again reassuring the claims members here made for years. Don't be a pigeon! :D

Re: Not now but soon.

Another report from the ICANN meeting: a detailed look at the 7 steps to the launch of new TLDs

One of the steps is a four-month communication period. Since some of the steps look like they could take a while, I hope ICANN staff will be working on them in parallel.

Look as a domainer, I am not really that bothered about when the gTLDs get implemented. What I need if for that four month communication period to start. We need them to let the World now what is happening.

Good point. But Verisign will need to do their share during that four months, by explaining more clearly their plans to apply for .com in other languages.

There are still questions they haven't answered, and this causes uncertainty in the marketplace. For instance, if it costs $184K per language to apply, will they only apply for the big languages (Russian, Arabic, Japanese, Chinese) at this time, and leave smaller languages (Armenian, Georgian, maybe even Greek) for later? And will China allow owners of the [.com in Chinese].cn domains to be left out in the cold when Verisign's [.com in Chinese] goes live?

We also need the governments to be informing the people and updating their infrastructure. The 300k going to update Cyrillic email is a start but to me sounds like a joke. How much was it just to apply for .RF? And this is coming from a country that wants to have the "next" Silicon Valley. What do they expect to pay top programmers and just how serious are they with a 300k "investment?"
