The ICANN board today Approved a resolution that would push off a vote on the approval of the the new gTLD program today in its meeting in Colombia to the San Fransisco ICANN Meeting in March.
Under the resolution The ICANN board will hold an meeting sometime in February 2011 with the Government Advisory Council (the GAC) to hear their final thoughts on the Guidebook.
Moreover under the resolution ICANN is directing its staff to put together a report and a summary of all the comments that were submitted to ICANN under the comment period.
ICANN agreed to provide details regarding its rational for making some of the decisions they have made, regarding the economic interest study and the registrar/registry decision it made last month.
It seems like this will be an ongoing process and as mostly everyone predicted that no final decision would be made at this meeting.
There were certainly many issues with the latest Guidebook so I think it was a proper decision.
We filed out comments on the Guidebook last night
