TechOps is an initiative first founded in April 2017 by the ICANN Registrar Stakeholder Group 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 is necessary. Our joint goal is to create an open space to exchange experiences, to discuss ideas, and ideally to create best practices. In September 2017, the joint group was kicked off 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 and/or other colleagues want to join, please contact the respective Secretaries.
What is the workflow and what are the next steps for our own documents? It usually starts with a discussion, then we start drafting a first paper, which we iteratively improve. If we think it is good enough, we are publishing it. Work that we are supporting are usually discussed and then we provide feedback.
