About Inip-discuss
English (USA)

INIP-discuss is the public discussion list for Internet Names and Identifiers Program. See the full description at

The inip-discuss list is an open-subscription list, sponsored by the IAB, intended to be an open venue for discussion of the topics covered in the scope description for the IAB Internet Names and Identifiers Program ( These topics broadly include the use and evolution of naming systems for the Internet, including but not limited to DNS and other protocols that use domain names. Contributions will be covered by the IETF Note Well (

The list is intended to provide input and perspective, at the architectural level, to discussions in current or potential IETF, IAB, or IRTF activities on the topics the Program was formed to address. It is not intended to replace or supersede discussions in the IETF on specific protocol matters, such as those addressed in the charter for the DNSOP WG. It is also not intended to replace or supersede having a formal membership and deliverables for the IAB program, which is managed at the discretion of the IAB.
