More tales of woe at ICANN.

ICANN Suspends Digital Archery Part Of New gTLD Program [icann.org]
Operation of the digital archery portion of the New Generic Top-level Domain Program has been suspended.

The primary reason is that applicants have reported that the timestamp system returns unexpected results depending on circumstances. Independent analysis also confirmed the variances, some as a result of network latency, others as a result of how the timestamp system responds under differing circumstances.

The timestamp window was due to close on 28 June. As of 23 June, approximately 20 percent of applications had a registered timestamp.

Given public comment regarding the timestamp process and that many applicants had yet to register a timestamp, the decision was taken to suspend the system now, pending further analysis of the process.

I had no idea what this was about, so I went looking for an explanation of "Digital Archery"...
