15 July 2021

Open Date: 15 July 2021

Close Date: 26 August 2021

Originating Organization: Global Domains and Strategy (GDS)


The purpose of this Public Comment proceeding is to obtain community input on the proposal for Greek Script Root Zone Label Generation Rules (RZ-LGR) developed by the Greek Script Generation Panel (GP). As per the LGR Procedure, the proposal (Proposal and Supporting Document) have been posted for community review. Based on the feedback received, the Greek Script GP will finalize and submit the proposal for integration into the Label Generation Rules for the Root Zone (RZ-LGR).

Current Status

Currently, there are multiple script communities that have formed Generation Panels and are actively working towards finalizing Label Generation Rules (LGRs) for the root zone including Japanese, Latin, and Myanmar scripts. LGRs for the following 18 scripts have already been completed and integrated: Arabic, Bangla, Chinese, Devanagari, Ethiopic, Georgian, Gujarati, Gurmukhi, Hebrew, Kannada, Khmer, Lao, Malayalam, Oriya, Sinhala, Tamil, Telugu, and Thai. In addition, Armenian, Cyrillic, and Korean scripts have also been completed and are waiting to be integrated.

Next Steps

Following the Public Comment period and submission of the proposal by the Greek Script GP, which will reflect any changes due to community feedback, the Integration Panel (IP) will evaluate the proposal. If the proposal is successfully evaluated, it will be integrated into a subsequent version of the RZ-LGR. If not, the proposal will be sent back to the Greek Script GP with comments for further consideration and revision.
