>From your explanation, can I understand it to be interest to add an item for

I understand that you are talking specifically about the Arabic script, am
trying to generalize what you are saying into an item for discussion for
With regards to Arabic script specifically, can you share with us perhaps
whether you think that the policies should be applied across ccTLDs and
gTLDs alike when Arabic IDNs are concerned? and why...
The JIG is intended to be a group to discuss issues that are common (or
should be viewed as common or leads to an inter-relation) across IDN ccTLDs
and IDN gTLDs. Especially policy implementation issues at the root and
those which ICANN (or IANA for that matter) would concern itself with in
coordinating the security and stability of the DNS. [[Others please correct
or add to this :-)]]

Greetings Edmon and Members of the JIG working group,
First of all, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Fahd, and I represent
JO (Jordan). I am one of the additions from the ccNSO.
Since I am a member of the Arabic Script community, one challenge we are
facing is the issue of digit mixing. Other issues that have been discussed
and resolved are the usage of diacritics, as well as zero-width joiners and
Since I am not aware of other scripts or languages other than the Arabic
script, and since I am not sure if the items I mentioned are of concern to
this working group, just thought of bringing them up in case...

One of the discussions we had in Seoul (during the GNSO/ccNSO launch) was
that we anticipate the release of a report from the staff IDN team shortly
(regarding IDN TLD length and variant management). It may be useful for this
group to observe some of the outcomes from that effort as well.
I wonder if anyone can provide some update on the release of that report?
Based on previous discussions the 2 items that we have identified as items
of common interest were in fact:
1. Length of IDN TLD strings (ccTLD vs. gTLD)
2. Variant implementation at the root (for IDN TLD strings)
Does anyone have any suggestion on other potential items to discuss?
