DEAR BC MEMBERSThe BC members had significant concerns about digital archery.

applications in a single batch, and simultaneous release of results. ICANN
believes this approach is consistent with the constraints that various parts of
the community have in performing their respective roles in the evaluation
process, and with the feedback received from the community at the Prague
