Subject: Convening the NA-RALO Puerto Rico ccTLD .PR "task force"

> Hello Eduardo, Garth, Gareth and all. This note is meant to convene the 
> "task force" on the Puerto Rico ccTLD issue. I have cc'd the NA-RALO list 
> in case I have missed anyone with interest, or forgottenn expressions of 
> interest in previous calls. Please join us if you want to get involved or 
> remind me if you want to be part of the effort going forward!
> To jog memories, or if you are new to the issue...there's an article (a 
> bit old now, and in Spanish) here:
> http://www.vocero.com/puerto-rico-es/se-llevan-dominio-www-gobierno-pr-sin-autorizacion
> I have also attached a copy of the lawsuit, translated into English, 
> courtesy of Danny Younger. Eduardo probably has more current information 
> on this now, but it's a bit of background.
> I recommend we take the following actions:
> * Prepare a brief statement that the NA-RALO can make prior to Dakar. If 
> Eduardo can point me to, or send me, a summary of the latest facts in the 
> case I can use that. Or Eduardo and Garth might want to take a crack at 
> writing the statement, if that's the case let me know.
> * Ask Garth to put this in perspective of other research that's been done 
> by Knujon and others on the ccTLD space, with an eye towards producing a 
> small report or a statement to the effect that "what's going on with 
> Puerto Rico's country-code level domain may seem unusual, but considering 
> these other things happening with ccTLDS, it's not so unusual." That can 
> be the basis of possibly getting some press, because we are going to need 
> that, or at least the possibility of it, to get that community to take 
> notice and get ICANN/IANA to take the matter seriously.
> * Make a determination prior to Dakar of what the appropriate channels are 
> to raise concerns about this, so that we can send some communication up 
> those channels prior to Dakar.
> Seems to me like those are some concrete first steps to get things 
> started. Feel free to add or offer other ideas. I think we have an 
> opportunity here since Garth will be joining us in Dakar.
> Best,
> Beau
