Hello everyone,

Staff understanding is that the list Avri mentions is the list of the
actual DNS labels that directly correspond to the list of IGO names and
acronyms that the Board had agreed to protect on a temporary basis, per
its June resolution:

The Board's New gTLD Program Committee (NGPC) is definitely aware that
this WG is about to finalize its recommendations. Staff plans to formally
send the finalized recommendations to the NGPC immediately upon their
publication for public comment, either today or tomorrow (per the WG
discussion yesterday).

I hope this is helpful.
