The new gTLD info for Thursday, March 31st

This is the recap of the day for new gTLDs NEWS. We added info from yesterday as we could not post anything. There is a petition to develop a new geographic/community TLD.
We have seen many projects of this kind in Round one of the ICANN new gTLD program and we hope a funding will be found. We faced this stage of a new gTLD project when hunting for money for the dotVinum project in Round one. It really is the hardest part: not to forget that this TLD could already be added to the list of an ultra rich applicant preparing for Round 2...

The problem with initiating such communication so early is that it gives ideas to others: when the first .WINE and .GREEN projects were launched, they thought that they would be alone to submit their application.
