.. - WHOIS
The WHOIS task force has been meeting somewhat less frequently than in the past. Much of its recent discussion has focused on a proposal advanced by Ross Rader (Tucows, registrar constituency), to replace existing contacts of a WHOIS record with an "Operational Point of Contact" <http://code.byte.org/blog/_archives/2005/11/28/1426464.html>. We're assessing the necessity of each piece of data collected against this and other proposals.
On research, I've gotten little follow-up from others in outlining a research plan of action. It appears, further, that ALAC lacks the capacity to implement anything we recommend, so the value of planning depends on working closely with staff. I hope one of our new temporary staff members will be able to join these discussions.
I will likely be unable to make the call.
