As requested yesterday.

The ALAC has discussed the compromise recommendation proposed by the RC/IOC DT via e-mail over the last week, generating more traffic on a single topic than I can recall in recent history. The issue was also discussed at length during the ALAC Teleconference on 25 September, 2012.

The was a strong consensus or perhaps unanimity that in the long-term issue (that is past new gTLD round 1), the issue should be addressed by a PDP.

The positions regarding temporary protections pending the outcome of a PDP were far more varied. Virtually all ALAC members who voiced an opinion felt that the RC and the IOC should never have been dealt with as a single issue, but rather should have been subject to separate evaluations and recommendations. Specifically, there was a strong belief that humanitarian organizations might deserve a different level of protection than other types of organizations. Some ALAC members expressed the view that on balance, no interim protection should be offered. Others felt that there was sufficient merit in granting the RC protection that the proposed compromise position should be supported.

A formal vote was taken and the outcome was that the ALAC did support the recommendations.
