Information Transparency Initiative Update: New Content Available on Preview for Your Feedback

As ICANN org President and CEO G?ran Marby wrote about in his May 2020 blog, the Information Transparency Initiative (ITI) team is releasing new content to https://preview.icann.org?on a regular basis. This https://icann.org content has been improved with ITI’s enhanced search features. Today, we added new content and improved previously released content including:

  • Correspondence - New findability improvements include keyword(s) search allowing you to narrow your search within Correspondence files, an advanced year selector, a helpful sub-navigation menu, and an improved table layout to enhance accessibility and readability.
  • Board Meeting Materials - We’ve made upgrades to this content type since the May 2020 release. The keyword(s) search has been implemented and improved, and most Board Meeting files and pages from 1998-2019 are now available via filtered or keyword search.
  • Acronyms and Terms - Enhancements to the existing release include alignment with ITI’s new user experience, additional terms added in all six U.N. languages, and a new sub-navigation menu.

We Need Your Feedback

The entire ITI team thanks the community for your feedback on our previous releases. If you missed the feedback webinars, you can access the recordings here and here. To support our current release, we invite the community to join us for two upcoming webinars. The team will demonstrate the enhancements to Correspondence, Board Materials, and Acronyms and Terms, and answer any questions.

Take the time to review the experience on the current https://icann.org and then experiment with the improved content available via http://preview.icann.org. Some of the questions to think about when you are trying out the new content include:

  • Are we on the right track?
  • Are the search filters useful?
  • Are there filters you would like to add?

If you can’t attend the webinars, the sessions will be recorded and posted to https://feedback.icann.org. If you prefer to make your comments anonymously, you can complete a survey about the release, which is also available on the feedback site.

As I’ve written about before but it bears repeating, the ITI team cannot do this without your feedback, and we are thankful for your encouraging input and helpful recommendations.

We look forward to speaking with you at our upcoming webinars, and don’t forget to register.

Background

ITI is an operational activity to improve ICANN’s content governance and infrastructure. ITI's goals include:

  • Creating an integrated ongoing, operational process to govern, preserve, organize, and secure ICANN's public content.
  • Implementing this governance through a new document management system (DMS), the content foundation for ICANN ecosystem-wide governance.
  • Surfacing this content through a new content management system (CMS), which will serve as the backbone for ICANN's external web properties.
  • Enabling a multilingual user experience (in the U.N. six languages) and aim to adhere to W3C AA accessibility standards.
  • Upgrading and establish a future-proof and content agnostic technology landscape.

    Domain Name System
    Internationalized Domain Name ,IDN,"IDNs are domain names that include characters used in the local representation of languages that are not written with the twenty-six letters of the basic Latin alphabet ""a-z"". An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European ""0-9"". The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domain names, termed ""ASCII characters"" (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of ""Unicode characters"" that provides the basis for IDNs. The ""hostname rule"" requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the hyphen ""-"". The Unicode form of an IDN therefore requires special encoding before it is entered into the DNS. The following terminology is used when distinguishing between these forms: A domain name consists of a series of ""labels"" (separated by ""dots""). The ASCII form of an IDN label is termed an ""A-label"". All operations defined in the DNS protocol use A-labels exclusively. The Unicode form, which a user expects to be displayed, is termed a ""U-label"". The difference may be illustrated with the Hindi word for ""test"" — ????? — appearing here as a U-label would (in the Devanagari script). A special form of ""ASCII compatible encoding"" (abbreviated ACE) is applied to this to produce the corresponding A-label: xn--11b5bs1di. A domain name that only includes ASCII letters, digits, and hyphens is termed an ""LDH label"". Although the definitions of A-labels and LDH-labels overlap, a name consisting exclusively of LDH labels, such as""icann.org"" is not an IDN."
