[AfrICANN-discuss] Management of African ccTLDs: Panne du .td?

We got a report of this issue at .td at the AFTLD Annual Meeting in Livingstone, Zambia 
in July 2012 and many of us have attempted to get in touch with .td without much success.

What may also be noted is that it seems that there have been not complaints or reports 
from within Chad. It hence seems necessary to ask whether this is a problem for the 
Internet community within Chad. Are there "significantly interested parties" in this 
issue within Chad?

We have also tried to contact those that seem to have been running the secondary DNS 
services, not much luck there either - no one replies to the addresses in the SOA, even 
from servers on .fr - so why were they chosen to run secondary DNS services?

The FOIWG of the ccNSO is discussing what may be interpretted as "substantial 
misbehaviour" of a ccTLD manager and the conditions that must exist for them to be 
interpretted as adequate for IANA intervention as stipulated in RFC1591. Are we there yet 
for this case?
