The .org applicants’ comments on the preliminary staff report have been posted to the ICANN web site. From a quick first glance on some of the reports, several (if not most) applicants were not at all amused by the process and by the quality of the underlying evaluations, offering detailed comments and corrections. I’m looking forward for the responses from those who did the evaluation. But maybe this entire process is unnecessary anyway.
For some nice quotes picked from the individual comments, I’d recommend you read this selection which was just posted to the GA list.
