Update on ".travel"
In its role as the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority , ICANN issued a report 5 August 2005 recommending the addition of ".travel" to the root, and recommending the delegation by ICANN to the Tralliance Corp. subsidiary of TheGlobe.com / Voiceglo of authority over ".travel policies. The IANA report fails to mention that ICANN's decision to approve and delegate ".travel" is subject to my pending request for independent review and stay pendcing independent review. Nor does the IANA report consider the implications of having to remove ".travel" from the root, or stay its approval and/or delegation, if the independent review panel eventually upholds my request.
I've still received no notice of any action by ICANN on my request for independent review of whether ICANN's decision on ".travel" was made in accordance with ICANN's bylaws on openness and ytransparency; no notice of any action on my request for a stay pending independent review; no response to my request for a copy of any ICANN policies and procedures for independent review; no notice of any meeting of ICANN or any ICANN body to consider either these requests or ICANN policies and procedures for independent review; and no response or acknowledgement of any kind of my request to the USA Department of Commerce not to approve the addition of ".travel" to the root servers.Link | Posted by Edward on Tuesday, 16 August 2005, 15:13 ( 3:13 PM)
