Dear At-Large Colleagues,

The ALAC is preparing a statement on the topic of ccTLD "revocation", which
refers to a process where the IANA Operator rescinds the responsibility for
the management of a ccTLD from the manager.  In such a situation, a country
code Top Level Domain will be re-delegated without the consent of the
incumbent ccTLD manager in cases where there are “persistent problems with
the operations of the domain” and where there continues to be “substantial
misbehavior” on the part of ccTLD managers despite the IANA Operator’s best
efforts to stop the misconduct.

A draft statement has been prepared and is available for your input/comment
on the following wikipage:

If you have thoughts or opinions on this topic, please do provide your
input/comments on the wikipage.

Thank you.

Best regards,
