Dear All,

As you might be aware, ICANN is in the process of transitioning all Socialtext 
Wikis over to Confluence Wiki (by Atlassian). Next up are the GNSO related 
workspaces (WG wikis, GNSO Council wiki, etc.) We expect this to be a gradual 
transition with a final completion date of 30 June 2011 at which stage all 
Socialtext Wikis will have been migrated and will retire.

What does this mean for you? In due time you will be informed by the 
responsible ICANN policy staff that your respective workspace has migrated and 
you can start using the new Confluence wiki. At that stage you will also 
receive your log-in details which will give you editing rights to your 
respective Confluence pages. All the informationthat was available on the 
Socialtext wiki will also be available on the newConfluence site, albeit with a 
different layout format.

How can you lean more about Confluence? To learn more about Confluence and the 
new functionalities offered, please see 
http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+User%27s+Guide. Attached 
you will also find an introduction to the basic functions of Confluence.

Confluence Training Session: For those interested, a training session will be 
organized at the next ICANN meeting in San Francisco. If you are interested to 
participate, please inform the GNSO Secretariat at 
gnso.secretariat@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:gnso.secretariat@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> as soon 
as possible.

If you already want to have a look at the new ICANN Community Wiki space, 
please see https://community.icann.org/. Please note that for now you'll only 
find the ALAC wikis and access to board resolutions there. To access the 
existing GNSO wikis at Socialtext, please go to 

We hope that the transition will be smooth, without any major interruptions, 
and anticipate that the move to Confluencewill enhance the options for on-line 
collaboration as a result of the enhanced features offered.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

With best regards,
