Today’s Names Council telephone conference recording is now available for download. George Kirikos has listened to it and has posted a summary of the part of the call concerning the Wait Listing Service. Also, some additional material for the Task Force’s report is available. This includes a statement from the IPC, a statement from the gTLDs, and a collection of supporting material.

Update: Jeff Neumann (the gTLD registry constituency‘s chair, but not a member of the council) has posted a follow-up in which he states that the Names Council’s vote was a recognition that the report adequatley represents the view of those that participated in the Task Force. It was not approval for the substance contained within the report. I can offer no clarification on this myself since I did not participate in the conference call (other obligations took priority), and have not found the time to listen to the recording. It seems like we’ll have to wait for the call’s official minutes.
