New gTLDs: Adopted Board Resolutions

In each ICANN meetings, working groups and the board gather to take decisions.

This document is a long one to extract the information related to new gTLDs "only" but here is some of it. There is a lot about the CPE process (Community Priority Evaluation) but I even if the document is entitled "adopted board resolution", I saw nothing "adopted". Note that the ICANN uses the words "resolve" but it does not necessarily mean that a case ends when it has been resolved. A good way to read this document in an efficient way is to use the search field of the browser and enter the word "Resolved". It is what I did and here is the result.

I found adopted board resolutions for some Top-Level Domains, they are dated 15 March 2018 so I guess that they are of interest:
  1. On the Community Priority Evaluation:
    1. Resolved (2018.03.15.09), the Board concludes that, as a result of the findings in the CPE Process Review Reports, no overhaul or change to the CPE process for this current round of the New gTLD Program is necessary.
    2. Resolved (2018.03.15.10), the Board declares that the CPE Process Review has been completed.
  2. On .PRESIANGULF new gTLD:
    1. Resolved (2018.03.15.13), the Board directs the President and CEO, or his designee(s), to take all steps necessary to reimburse the GCC in the amount of US$107,924.16 in furtherance of the IRP Panel's Costs Declaration upon demonstration by the GCC that these incurred costs have been paid.
    2. Resolved (2018.03.15.14), the Board directs the BAMC: to follow the steps required as if the GAC provided non-consensus advice to the Board pursuant to Module 3.1 (subparagraph II) of the Applicant Guidebook regarding .PERSIANGULF; to review and consider the relevant materials related to the .PERSIANGULF matter; and to provide a recommendation to the Board as to whether or not the application for .PERSIANGULF should proceed.
