TechOps is an initiative first founded in April 2017 by the ICANN Registrar Stakeholder Group (RrSG) to address technical and operational needs and challenges. In this process, it became clear that an additional joint initiative with the ICANN Registry Stakeholder Group (RySG) is necessary. Our mutual goal is to create an open space to exchange experiences, to discuss ideas, and ideally to create best practices. In September 2017, the RrSG and RySG kicked off the joint group with its first remote meeting. Since that time, we had many calls and face to face meetings, during those we have been working on many topics, such as Maintenance, Reports, Domain Transfers.
If you are a member of the RySG or RrSG and some of your software developers, product managers, or other colleagues want to join, please contact your respective Secretaries.
What is the workflow, and what are the next steps for our documents? It usually starts with a discussion, and then we begin drafting a first paper, which we iteratively improve. If we think it is good enough, we are publishing it. We usually discuss the work we are supporting, and then we provide feedback.
