You know the rule about not renewing until 90 days from expiry?Can anyone tell me why the status of domains has gone from OK to serverRenewProhibted. I'm seeing it with a bunch of domains. What does this mean? Is auda in a legal dispute with the ATO?
"This status code indicates your domain's Registry Operator will not allow your registrar to renew your domain. It is an uncommon status that is usually enacted during legal disputes or when your domain is subject to deletion."

Well Afilias’ implementation is to add a serverRenewProhibited status instead of “ok” and “inactive”.
The domains can still be transferred (in theory) some registrars still looking for “ok” and “inactive” need to update their systems.
It is causing lots of problems and no amount of protesting from me during OTE could convince them to not use it.
There are a few more status changes like pendingDelete (Client requested delete) and pendingDelete (Client requested policy delete) have been replaced by just pendingDelete in whois and pendingDelete (redemption) in EPP. No amount of protesting or saying it was part of policy could get them to change that either.
