As an outcome of a meeting of approximately 40 registration operators 
on March 24, 2010 (coincident with IETF 77) a new mail list has been 
established for the discussion of Internet Registration Operations 

The kinds of operators that may be interested in the discussions on 
this list include:

    Regional Internet Registries
    Domain Name registries (such as gTLD , ccTLD)
    Resellers of domain names
    National Internet Registries
    Local Internet Registries (including Internet Service Providers)
    Managed DNS service operators
    and possibly others

Examples of acceptable topics for the list:

    Transfer of DNSSEC (and DNS) parameters into registries
    Determining means to measure registration-related performance
    Issues with provisioning protocols, including EPP extensions
    Directory Inspection (aka WhoIs) methods
    Escrow policies (*)
    Discussion of threats involving the registration system

Although these registration services involve the operations of DNS, this list
is not intended to be a primary discussion venue for the DNS even if DNS
is a common theme.

The discussion on the list is considered public and will encourage 
the development of work efforts directed towards the IETF when 
appropriate and/or other organizations.

Oh, the name of the list is regops at nlnetlabs.nl
Subscription address: regops-request at nlnetlabs.nl

Please allow some time for discussion to begin.

* - There is an active effort to establish IETF work on escrow on ire at ietf.org.

As with IPv6, the problem with the deployment of frictionless surfaces is
that they're not getting traction.
