Sarmad Hussain from the IDN Program at ICANN has confessed that he is truly satisfied: “On behalf of ICANN we are grateful the Thai script community for volunteering to improve the Thai LGR call for the Root Zone,” “and the Electronic Transactions Development Agency of Thailand for organizing and hosting this panel.”

MSR is the basis of any Generation Panel’s work as the LGR Procedure specifies and since 27 April 2015, MSR-2 too. Who needs to know all the particularities of Generation Panel’s tasks can search in the LGR Procedure, particularly in Section B.3 “Variant Rule Generation Procedure”.
