[DNS] re-delegation of .au

There is, I think, a fundamental misunderstanding about what is going on
here and this is not helped by press articles that incorrectly state the

auDA has formally applied to IANA to re-delegate .au. This is the first step
in a formal process which involves Robert Elz. It is NOT an attempt to 'go
around' him or exclude him or force the re-delegation. He received copies of
all documents and was asked for input and his opinion. He has chosen so far
not to respond and that is his prerogative. ICANN will be contacting him as
part of the process.

auDA will be posting copies of all the documents on the web site in the next
few days and a formal media release will be sent out as soon as possible.

Robert Elz has been involved at all stages of auDA's development. He has
been asked to participate in the Panels. auDA has attempted to deal with all
his requests and to act on all his input.

In respect to .org.au, auDA is receiving an average of 5 queries a day from
people who are dissatisfied with the .org.au service. We tell everyone the
same thing and have now placed that explanation on the site. I'm sorry of
this is perceived as a personal attack on Robert Elz. It is not and is not
intended to be. It is merely a statement of fact.

I hope this clarifies the situation. I will be happy to answer any queries
posted to the list or sent to me directly.
