At the Brussels meeting, the ccNSO requested that ITEMS International publish an addendum [PDF, 648 KB] to its report which would extensively disclose all results of the survey/interviews.

Moreover, the questions raised during the exchange at ICANN's 38 meeting indicated that the initial timeline allocated for the public comment process would not provide the ccTLDs with sufficient time to submit their written responses to the report.

In light of this request for additional time, the WG Members unanimously decided to extend the public comment period to 15 September 2010.
