Purpose: As required by the IANA Naming Function Process for Amending the IANA Naming SLAs, the purpose of this public comment proceeding is to obtain community input on a proposed new SLA which would define expectations of request processing timeliness for Label Generation Rulesets (LGRs). If adopted, the new requirements will be added to the performance metrics as defined in the Service Level Agreements for the IANA Naming Functions Contract. The Repository of IDN Practices supports internationalized domain names (IDNs) by promoting the sharing of registry IDN policies. The IDN Repository houses the IDN tables or LGRs for registries that offer IDN registrations. The IANA naming functions include maintaining the LGRs through processing requests for the publication or modification of the rulesets for each TLD registry.
Current Status: According to the Process for Amending the IANA Naming SLAs, the Customer Standing Committee, PTI, and ICANN have agreed upon the new metrics, and now seek community consultation through this public comment process.
Next Steps: Feedback from this public comment period will be considered for the final SLA recommendation.
