ICANN has officially killed off the Digital Archery program in an announcement today.
“”Resolved the New gTLD Program Committee directs the President and CEO to terminate the Digital Archery process as approved in Resolutions 2011.12.08.04-2011.12.08.07.”
Rationale for Resolution:
“To remain accountable to the ICANN community, after careful consideration of the objections raised to the digital archery process, and following the suspension of the process after identification of a technical issue, the New gTLD Program Committee’s decision provides finality to the community on the status of the digital archery process.”
“This decision will not have any impact on the security, stability or resiliency of the DNS as a result of this decision.”
