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 ([1]http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applicants/candidate-support/s
arp-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!
