Dear all, At the GNSO Council call 19 October it was decided to re-launch this working group to address IDN policy issues in relation to new gTLDs. Minutes from this meeting are not available yet, but there is an MP3 recording at: http://gnso-audio.icann.org/GNSO-Council-20061019.mp3 . (For the agenda see: http://gnso.icann.org/calendar/#oct )

To provide some input for a first call, I have drafted the attached discussion paper, expanding a little on the more imminent tasks in the Terms of Reference that were discussed at the Council meeting (the ToR are also annexed to the discussion paper).
Also, Tina Dam recently alerted me to brand new draft technical documents that would constitute important background reading in this context, notably:
Hoping this will be useful to you, I'm looking forward to working closely with you on these topics in the near future. Very best regards Olof
