"Following the request of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) for ICANN to “convene a multistakeholder process to develop a plan to transition the U.S. government stewardship role” with regard to the IANA Functions and related root zone management, a Cross Community Working Group (CWG-Stewardship) was formed with the purpose of developing a consolidated transition proposal for the elements of the IANA Functions relating to domain names... The CWG-Stewardship will present substantial information regarding current progress as well as the key issues under consideration, in order to provide the community a preview in advance of further detailed work during the ICANN 52 Meeting in Singapore."
