    According to the May 1, 2018 auDA Policy Review Panel agenda the panel is finalising the direct registration rules:
    However, in a letter from auDA to Members on 18 April, 2018 the auDA Chair Chris Leptos wrote:

    I'm confused, which is it - is the Policy Review Panel's work on direct .au registration policy on hold, or proceeding full stead ahead?

    It appears to be the latter, and without proper multi-stakeholder bottom up consensus policy development.

    Is this more puffery from the auDA propaganda machine?

    Is the agenda out of date perhaps? (i.e. written before the board decision)

    Very hard to know what is going on when the PRP seems to have slipped into the same dark place as the auDA board in terms of minutes not coming out in a timely manner. Still waiting on March minutes.

    Still they have a way to go to catch auDA itself who haven't yet released minutes from 13th November 2017. That got to be some kind of record.

    Regarding direct registrations I believe they intend to start this all up again in 12 months, that is what they put on paper. That is why it is so important that these directors (who don't listen and are only interest in saving their own jobs) be removed at the upcoming SGM.

    Surely this is more of auDA stuff up and not real.

    Everyone needs to keep an eye on this issue.

    The Commonwealth report is very clear. auDA needs to start listening and get back to basics. They must cease all activities and plans for more profiteering which harm the stability & security of the existing .au namespace.

    Why auDA must publish minutes includes a written agreement to Government to do it.

    https://www.auda.org.au/pdf/auda-govt-report.pdf

    "Transfer of Authority for the .au ccTLD Report on auDA's Achievements and Capacity to Manage Domain Names in Australia 9 October 2000

    The auDA Board strives to ensure that it conducts business in an open and accountable manner, including regularly publishing minutes of meetings and making all relevant documents available to members and the general public."
