Answer received from the French GAC regarding .VIN

This answer follows my previous post entitled "French GAC Early Warning for the .VIN new gTLD" dated 27 of November.

A question was asked to the French GAC on the reason why .VIN received an Early Warning and .WINE did not?

With the approval for publication of Camille Angue, Diplomate - Ministère français des affaires étrangères - Numérique & Gouvernance d'internet, here is the answer I received:

"Pour votre information, les early warning n'ont pas été déclenchés par le MAE (1) ou Bercy (2), mais font toujours suite à une demande émanant du ministère technique en charge du dossier concerné (ici, l'agriculture)".


" liste finale a été arrêtée lors d'une réunion interministérielle à Matignon (3)".


The .VIN GAC Early Warning was submitted by the Ministry of Agriculture after ministries met with the Prime minister during a meeting. Apparently a list of new gTLD applications was drafted and a selection was made for Early Warnings. At least this is how I understand it but I cannot tell if .WINE was on that list.

I was invited to discuss this...

A few definitions (since you are supposed to know all acronyms above):
  1. "MAE", pick-up one here (but I suggest "Ministry of Foreign Affairs");
  2. "Bercy", pick-up one here (but I suggest "Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry");
  3. "Matignon", pick-ip one here (but I suggest "the office of our Prime Minister").
