The 2 types of structure of the ccSO proposed by the ccTLDs are individual and regional.
After discussing the advantages and disadvantages of the two types of membership, it was greatly favored to have individual memberships with the members able to give their proxies to regional or "other" groupings within the ccSO.
Discussion continued on policy and structure of ccSO including working closely with ICANN stakeholders.
The final outcome of the resolution on policy, structure and consensus building with ICANN stakeholders is in ccTLD Communique 20010909.ccTLDmontevideo-communique.html present to ICANN Board of Directors during ICANN Public Forum on Sep. 9, 2001.
The meeting also agreed to change the Stockholm resolution 20010601.ccTLDstockholm-communique.html to a correct fiscal year (from June 30, 2001 to December 31, 2001). Therefore, ccTLD Constituency will continue to fund the DNSO until December 31, 2001.
ccTLD Names Council will vote for one ICANN Board of Directors seat which will be held on September 9, 2001. The meeting agreed to give guidance to our NC.
Therefore, it conducted two polls:
In favor 19
In favor 12 (secret vote)
Against 10 (open vote)
ccTLDs decided to invite all the candidates present in Montevideo and (will) ask them questions tomorrow (Sep. 7) so that ccTLD managers can decide who to choose. The questions were sent to the candidates who were not present at Montevideo to answer via email to be presented to the meeting.
Discussions regarding ICANN Board seats for ccSO, if formed within ICANN, were made. Here are the propositions:
There was no consensus reached on this issue.
Bernard Turcott, CEO of CIRA(.ca) and Maureen Cubberley, CIRA Board, have given the meeting an update on negotiation of agreement with ICANN which has not yet been finalized.
ccTLD Constituency invited other constituencies of DNSO to our meeting to discuss on ccSO Formation. They were all very supportive and wanted to keep communication channels open.
ccTLD Constituency will also be in touch with ASO and PSO.
The ICANN Board and Staff (Amadeu Abril I Abril, Andrew McLaughlin, Herbert Vizthum) presented their views on ccSO Formation.
We have also invited the At Large Study Committee (Carl Bildt, Pindar Wong, Esther Dyson, Chuck Costello) to give us their perspective on why they chose to go with "Individual Domain Name Holders" as a mean of participation in ICANN process.
Amadeu Abril i Abril and Paul Kane were the only two candidates to be at our meeting to answer the questions.
Jefsey Morfin sent in the questionnaire late and could not be presented to the meeting.
After their answers, ccTLD managers voted behind closed door and final results were:
Amadeu Abril i Abril: 34 votes
Paul Kane: 25 votes
Joanna Lane: 0
Jefsey Morfin: 0
Paul Kane: 46
Joanna Lane: 2
Jefsey Morfin: 9
Joanna Lane: 15
Jefsey Morfin: 15
Amadeu Abril i Abril was chosen to be the first choice of candidate for ccTLD Names Council to vote for ICANN Board and Paul Kane as the second choice.
Since there was a tie in third round, it will be up to Names Council to choose between Joanna Lane and Jefsey Morfin.
Note that on Sep. 8 from 9:30 - 12:00, Herbert Vitzthum of ICANN has organized the IANA Workshop for ccTLD managers. 29 ccTLD representatives attended.
After this meeting, the ccTLD managers drafted the statement 20010909.ccTLDmontevideo-IANA-communique.html expressing their concerns on slow actions by IANA. This was presented to ICANN Board during ICANN Public Forum by Pilar Luque.
