we are entering what may be the final stages of the compilation of the proposal for a post-US government stewardship of the IANA functions.

Like the numbering and protocol parameters groups before them, the names community are in the final phases of compiling a proposal for that final piece of IANA. Their proposal has gone out for public comment, see:

I therefore encourage you to participate in this community exercise.

A huge thank you must go to everyone who participated in the proposal development for the numbers community (via the CRISP team from the RIRs) and the protocol parameters community (via ianaplan from the IETF). Those proposals are comprehensive indeed:

Numbers, ie RIR:
Protocols, ie IETF:

We will be moving into the final phase soon, so I will need people's thoughts on the overall system proposal: is it appropriate?
Have the processes been rigorous and dealt with issues raised within standing community processes?
Are the proposals consistent with each other?
Will they work together?

Is anything missing?

Best regards

Been a few years since this was my regular #commute and it's just as #gorgeous as ever. Had a quick nod to the #traditional #dancers at the Quay and now floating home. Best way to get to work ever!
