Purpose (Brief):

To facilitate and improve consistency of testing and stability of registry operations of new gTLDs, ICANN is developing reference Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) tables in machine readable format, called Label Generation Rulesets (LGRs) for the second level, for use in Pre-Delegation Testing (PDT) and the Registry Service Evaluation Process (RSEP). Based on the process finalized after public comment, as the first step ICANN is releasing the Guidelines for Developing Reference LGRs for the Second Level [PDF, 544 KB].  The community is requested to review and provide feedback on the effectiveness of these guidelines for the development of the reference second level LGRs, and propose any further improvements.
