ICANN ASO - Website and Discussion Lists
This is an announcement to all parties with interests in management of Internet Address space and related resources.
The Address Supporting Organisation of ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) was established last year, and has assumed its responsibilities under the ICANN Bylaws for coordination of global policy development in relation to Internet Addresses and related resources. The nine-member Address Council has also been established, in accordance with the ASO MoU and ICANN Bylaws.
Since its establishment, the ASO has established mailing lists and a website to ensure that its processes are open and transparent, and accessible to all parties with an interest in Internet resource management issues.
Three ASO mailing lists are now available for public access to ASO information, and for input into the ASO process:
aso-announce for announcements and other information relating to the ASO (read only list) aso-policy for open discussion on policy and other ASO matters (open subscription list) aso-comment for comment and input of any kind (no subscription necessary)
The ASO website is also now available, at http://www.aso.icann.org, and carries information relating to the ASO, Address Council, and policy matters which may be under consideration; as well as complete archives of the above mailing lists.
At this time the Address Council is seeking participants in the ASO process, and encourages all interested parties to subscribe to the mailing lists above. To subscribe, send a message to <firstname.lastname@example.org> containing the text "subscribe <list name>", for instance "subscribe aso-policy".
We look forward to your participation!
for the ASO Address Council.
