The GNSO Council adopted both the Transfers and WHOIS Task Force
reports. WHOIS was adopted with the votes of the gTLD registries,
but against the votes of the non-commercial users' constituency,
after it had been clarified which of the Task Force's
recommendations are consensus policies and which are just general
recommendations (and *not* binding).
I also understand that the agenda for the Council's next meeting now
includes the initiation of a policy-development process on WHOIS
privacy, for which an issues paper will have to be prepared --
either by the Task Force, or by some other body.
