Brief Overview: The Integration Panel (IP) has successfully evaluated the Root Zone Label Generation Rules (LGR) proposals for 10 additional scripts, including Devanagari, Gujarati, Gurmukhi, Hebrew, Kannada, Malayalam, Oriya, Sinhala, Tamil and Telugu. These proposals were finalized and submitted by the respective Generation Panels (GPs), following the release of the individual proposals for public comments. The IP has integrated these proposals, along with Arabic, Ethiopic, Georgian, Khmer, Lao and Thai scripts already integrated into the second version of the Root Zone LGR (RZ-LGR-2), to develop the third version of the Root Zone LGR (RZ-LGR-3). As per the Procedure to Develop and Maintain the Label Generation Rules for the Root Zone in Respect of IDNA Labels, the RZ-LGR-3 is being released for public comments to gather community feedback for its finalization. RZ-LGR will be used to determine valid top-level Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) labels and their variant labels.
