1net Discuss Participants -

Folks may be aware that after the NTIA announcement,  ICANN released
a draft timeline for development of an IANA oversight transition plan -


Today at ICANN 49 in Singapore, there was a session which discussed 
the need to develop an IANA Accountability plan, as it will be necessary 
to provide NTIA with a community-wide plan for transition of the oversight 
duties which they presently perform.

ICANN is coordinating the effort to develop this plan for IANA transition,
and the first step is establishing a formal timeline and process for plan 

ICANN has provided a mail list for expedited input on the _process_ to be 
used for IANA transition plan development. This includes items such as 
feedback on the timeline document above, engagement processes, etc.

The list is here: <ianatransition at icann.org>  (An public archive is also 
available here: <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/ianatransition/>)

Note that the goal is to gather the input on the plan development process to 
be used by 27 March 2014, and then combine the mail list discussion and the 
discussions happening at ICANN 49, with the resulting timeline and next steps
to be released for public comment and community feedback on 7 April 2014.  

If you have specific views on process for development of the IANA transition 
plan, I would suggest that you contribute promptly.  If I see an official ICANN
announcement on this matter, I will forward to 1net and you can discard this
