Dear all,
Greetings! I hope you all had safe and pleasant trips home from the ICANN meetings in Addis. It was great meeting all of you, and have very uplifting discussions.
Speaking of ICANN, I am writing to inform you that unfortunately, the ICANN Support Application Review Panel (SARP) has declined our application for financial support for our .UMMAH gTLD application, and further, our application is being dropped from the gTLD application process (http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applicants/candidate-support/sarp-results-12mar13-en.pdf). As you can imagine, this is quite shocking news, given especially that as things are, we would not even be allowed to seek funding from elsewhere. Despite this, I am exploring the possibility of our being allowed to seek funding from elsewhere. It's not easy, and will never be!

That's about it for now. Have a great weekend, and best wishes!
