Hi Edmon, for the TLD acceptance program - this was started back in 2003 or 
2004 and was an early project for Karen Lentz and myself. For the limited 
purpose \at that time I believe we found it successful to some extend - but 
more needs to be done.

For this coming FY this is a new project we are taking up (should have been in 
the last 6months bit was de-prioritized due to lack of funding) so new 
initiatives are coming that way. In the last 6 months we solely participated in 
a few apps events, and remotely due to budget issues. But with the new FY 
coming up we hope to be able to provide more focus on it.

It will likely be run by me, but we need to make staff and resource decisions 
here mid-end july.

> For IDN TLD Variant:

>       - who is working on it?
>       - has the program been useful?
>       - what has worked and what has not worked in the past?
>       - how can we improve it / add IDN TLDs to it?
>       - how can we broaden the outreach for it?
>       - (the last 2 may essentially be what this group would further
> discuss on, but would be good to get some thoughts from staff as well
> if possible)
> Also as discussed, will look to continue with our biweekly conference

> Jian and I will draft a document for consideration regarding the Single
> Character IDN TLD issue shortly so we can get the discussions started

> Gabi/Gisella,
> Please help setup the call and send notice out.  Thanks in advance. :-)
