Jack will be in the room for a few minutes at the beginning of the session. He said this in email:

“The objective of the draft is to be informative, to represent CIRA’s implementation, and to be used as a reference for/and we’re going to
seek publication in the EPP Extensions Registry.

I don’t see any overlap with any other draft because it reflects specially our implementation.”

Can anyone speak to draft-wilcox-cira-idn-eppext at the meeting?

Thanks for bring this summary forward.

We just need to consider what to do with respect to the Wilcox document.

I will be speaking to draft-gould-idn-table at meeting.  I haven’t
reviewed draft-wilcox-cira-idn-eppext, so I’m unsure of the overlap with
draft-ietf-eppext-idnmap and draft-gould-idn-table.   The authors of
draft-ietf-eppext-idnmap and I created draft-gould-idn-table to address
one key item missing from draft-ietf-eppext-idnmap which was how to
identify the valid set of table identifiers to pass using
draft-ietf-eppext-idnmap for an IDN domain name.  We discussed the issue
on the list over a period of time, where I was proposing to use language
instead of a table identifier.  We agreed to stick with the table
identifier, but we needed a reliable way to determine the table
identifiers specific to the server, which is addressed with
draft-gould-idn-table.  Both draft-ietf-eppext-idnmap and
draft-gould-idn-table have been implemented in the Verisign EPP SDK that
includes a client and server implementation.  Ideally
draft-gould-idn-table and draft-ietf-eppext-idnmap would move up
together, but if not draft-gould-idn-table should be included in the
next set of working group documents.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

A question that will be asked in the working group meeting today is
what to do about IDN tables?

There is a working group document that has recently expired:


This document is languishing because Francisco has not gotten the
required implementation statements yet.  We can certainly revive it
but we may need to consider moving forward with incomplete
implementation reports.

In addition, there were two related individual submissions that have
also recently expired:


These three documents are not all the same but they are related.  The
question is how to move forward.

Are Gould and Wilcox withdrawing their documents?  Are they going to
seek publication in the EPP Extensions Registry?

If they want to seek being adopted by the working group then we will
need to address the apparent relationship with the existing working
group document.

Comments and suggestions are welcome.
