|IANA Transition: CCWG-Accountability Schedule (source: ICANN.org)|
People are working overtime, ICANN has hired professional writers ("Writing team" in schedule above) to finish the job, and hopefully, the Chartering organizations will timely approve the coming 3rd Draft Proposal so it may be transmitted by ICANN to the NTIA in January, 2016. At least that's the Plan.
While some CCWG participants have questioned the CCWG timeline--see, e.g., here and here--so far, it's pedal to the metal as the steamroller moves on! Stay tuned--Domain Mondo is following this one closely.
