Verisign has set up a Technical Review Panel that is chartered to look at implementation issues, to determine what enhancements could be made to improve the service, and to report the observed implementation issues to VeriSign along with any data supporting such issues. The committee is chaired by GNSO chair and SecSAC member Bruce Tonkin (Melbourne IT; conflict of interest statement; Melbourne IT letter to ICANN).This committee looks like another attempt by Verisign to distract people into discussions about implementation details of the Sitefinder service (there’s certainly room for improvement), in order to avoid the architectural concerns (which can only be addressed by dropping the service entirely).See also: Ross Rader’s take of the issue.
