An update from the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).

IANA is continuing to provide the neutral, central coordinating

As we await the United States government's final statement on the
"Improvement of Technical Management of Internet Names and Addresses"
(also known as the "Green Paper"), we are in the process of
reorganizing and restructuring the IANA organization. This process
will create an independent, not-for-profit corporation. The new IANA
will establish separate offices from the University of Southern

We are selecting legal representation and preparing initial bylaws and
articles of incorporation. The bylaws are being constructed to allow
for international representation on the board of directors by address
registries, domain name registries and registrars, protocol
organizations, and the user/industry community. Since the deadline for
having this organized may not permit a fully representative board to be
in place initially, we expect to create a transitional board who will
then conduct a process to establish the first fully functioning board
with world-wide representation of all constituencies.

In the spirit of community self-governance, we welcome your advice and
