  I wish to request a summary from IETF for the purpose of reporting to ALAC and to the at-Large structures through the RALOs about the status of completion of technical tasks related to IDN implementation. IETF has done exhaustive work in this area and at-Large has been informed about the recent internet drafts https://st.icann.org/idn-policy/index.cgi?at_large_idn_policy

Could I just emphasize Shiva's point and urge for some kind of summary to be drafted if possible ? Apart from a select number of people at ICANN who follow the IETF process first-hand, very few are aware of the great progress that has been made. In the last ICANN Sydney conference, questions were asked at the GNSO but also at the GAC and nobody had authoritative answers. The response was more among the lines of "we'll put together a working group to find that out" rather than a direct pointer to a document. Time consuming, but also frustrating, to say the least...

Is this something that's workable?

Kind regards,

(ISOC England, but also EURALO Board :-) )
