ICANN extends public comment period for new gTLDs for add'l 45 days

10 August 2012

ICANN has extended the public comment period for new generic top-level domains applications for an additional 45 days. The new end date is now 26 September 2012.

The new gTLD application comment period provides the public with an opportunity to have their views considered by evaluation panels as part of the application evaluations. The comment period opened on 13 June 2012 and will remain open for the entire application processing life cycle. The old timeline provided that only those comments received within the first 60 days, through 12 August 2012, were sure to be delivered to evaluators. We've now extended that period an additional 45 days.

The Applicant Guidebook states that the public comment period could be extended based on the number of applications received. Leading up to the original 60-day deadline, ICANN received input from the community that this window should be extended to provide for the additional time needed to analyze and provide thoughtful comment on the significantly larger than 500 applications originally anticipated.

After review and discussion of the community's input, and careful consideration of the implications and impacts the additional time may have on the processing of applications, we have extended the application comment period an additional 45 days.

This extended time will allow the public the most amount of time possible to submit comments without affecting current schedules.

Comments may be submitted on the application comment forum at: https://gtldcomment.icann.org/commen...ncomment/login

What's your guess on when Versign's annouced translits of IDN.com and .net in IDNs will go live? With the way, it's going, my guess is it could be early 2014 or even later. Anyone else with a guess?

re: ICANN extends public comment period for new gTLDs for add'l 45 days

Not sure if this has been published on here before. I just found this: http://www.icann.org/en/groups/board...03aug12-en.pdf

Specifically of importance as far as timelines are concerned that I can see are:

2. ICANN will evaluate all applications and move them to the next phase as soon
as practicable.

Initial evaluation has been underway, effectively beating the published July 12
start date. The Committee has asked staff to maintain regular communications
with applicants and the community regarding the status of application
processing. Since Prague, ICANN has worked with evaluators to accelerate the
schedule (while achieving all consistency and accuracy goals). In the few weeks
since then, considerable progress has been made.

Applications are being distributed in a way that keeps evaluation panels busy
at an economical rate. Applications are being distributed in a way that takes
advantage of similarities among applications, either because applications are
from the same applicant or have the same “back-­‐end” providers.

Evaluation service providers believe that they would ultimately be able to
process applications at a pace averaging 300 per month without compromising
quality. The firms believe that it would take a few months to fully ramp
capacity to process 300 applications per month.

Adding some time for ICANN to organize and publish results, this means that
initial evaluation results will be published in 11-­‐12 months after the July 12
start date, i.e., May or June 2013. ICANN continues to work with evaluators to
gain additional improvement. These will be reported when they are verified as
achievable.

PROGRESS REPORT ON NEW gTLD ISSUES RAISED IN PRAGUE




3. ICANN will take all of the community ideas into account and build a roadmap.

During the Prague meeting the New gTLD Committee indicated that the
committee recorded the comment being made at that meeting but understood
that applicants and others in the community who were not attending the
Prague meeting might not have had the opportunity to comment. Therefore, it
was decided to provide an opportunity for all applicants to comment and that
the general community should be given that opportunity also. That applicant
comment period has recently been opened. The comment period is limited to
three weeks because: interested parties are well informed on the issue and have
already commented at an earlier time, therefore time for research / study is not
necessary; and those interested in this issue are also interested in timely
resolution and suggested a shorter comment period.

The “roadmap” will be an annotated project schedule for the remainder of the
applications processing period. It is being developed now; preliminary timelines
have already been reviewed. Parts of the timeline, such as application
processing times, have already been published in companion documents.


4. The roadmap will:
a. Detail the next steps and timelines
b. Assess implications to applicants
c. Assess risks to the program

The roadmap will show how the separate schedules for evaluation applications,
possible dates for GAC input, comment & objection periods, and other program
elements fit together. The plan will demonstrate interdependencies, indicate
risk areas, describe schedule uncertainty, and indicate how applicants might be
affected by changes to the plan.

The roadmap will be released by the week of August 6, 2012.

"without affecting current schedules."

Personally, I would rather this take a little longer and ICANN got it right.

Few of you see the risk that Verisign are unlikely to have their feet contractually held to the fire.
