ICANN: Out of "Resources"

A new ICANN Staff-issued report to the GNSO (prepared by Maria Farrell) reveals the existence of "Non-active projects: approved but not resourced". Specifically the document points to a PDP that was passed by the GNSO Names Council on 13 January 2005 for which ICANN has no available resources -- the issue: "Problems caused by contention for domain names made available by a gTLD registry". Each PDP involves a staff-prepared Issue Report that according to the bylaws is supposed to be completed within 15 days. Yet even after announcing the hiring of five new staff members, ICANN claims it still doesn't have the resources to draft a simple report. Pretty pathetic, don't you think? If Louis Touton was still with the organization we could have fired a good two dozen staff members and still have gotten the job done.
