Today at ICANN 49 in Singapore, there was a session which discussed the 
need to develop an IANA Accountability plan, as it will be necessary to
provide NTIA with a community-wide plan for transition of the oversight 
duties which they presently perform.

ICANN is coordinating the effort to develop this plan for IANA transition,
and the first step is establishing a formal timeline and process for plan 

ICANN has provided a mail list for expedited input on the _process_ to be 
used for IANA transition plan development. This includes items such as 
feedback on the timeline document noted above, engagement processes, etc.

The list is here: <ianatransition at icann.org>  (An public archive is also 
available here: <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/ianatransition/>)

The goal is to gather the input by 27 March 2014, and then combine the 
mail list discussion and the discussions happening at ICANN 49, with
the resulting timeline and next steps to be released for public comment 
and community feedback on 7 April 2014.

If you have specific views on the process for development of the IANA 
transition plan, please contribute promptly.

Thank you!
