Hello, This is Sarves from LKNIC, Sri Lanka. ICANN has approved our .ලංකා and .இலங்கை IDNs and now we have started issues these domains. For your information : http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-4-23mar10-en.htm Our NIC site - www.nic.lk Could you please enable .ලංකා and .இலங்கை TLDs in Firefox and other Mozilla products. We also have localised versions of Firefox in Sinhala and Tamil (Sri Lanka). Please enable these IDNs in those localised versions too. Thanks Sarves -- K. Sarveswaran Systems Engineer LK Domain Registry c/o Department of Computer Science and Engineering University of Moratuwa Sri Lanka Mob : +94-77-224-4192 Office : +94-11-421-6061 Fax : +94-11-265-0912 Web : http://www.nic.lk Gerv's note: These are .xn--fzc2c9e2c and .xn--xkc2al3hye2a. The first step in meeting this request is checking their character lists and homograph policy. Gerv
I haven't found a document on http://www.nic.lk that explains what characters are allowed in domain names (.lk, .ලංකා and .இலங்கை) and what are not.
I will reach out to Gihan (admin) about Sarves' request and see if they have their list of allowed characters defined yet, and let them know to provide it.
Yes we have a allowed character list. without defining that we would not have passed ICANN's string evaluation phase. I will post the list tomorrow after getting the consent from Prof. Gihan Dias. fyi : http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/resolutions-05aug10-en.htm#2.c.i
Sarves: are you able to show us a public copy of the character list? Gerv
Sarves: this bug is waiting for input from you; no progress can be made without an answer to the question in comment #4. Gerv
Resolved INCOMPLETE due to no input from registry. Please reopen when the character list is available. Gerv
Reopening per bug 633165.
Here's their policy: http://www.nic.lk/index.php/en/idn-policy . Looks good to me; I don't see significant homographs, and they bundle ZWJ. Gerv
Created attachment 519699 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v.1
Many thanks to the team!
Just a further note: We still need to update the IDN Enabled list http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/tld-idn-policy-list.html with two entries, .xn--fzc2c9e2c and .xn--xkc2al3hye2a. The Registry URL is: http://nic.lk The Policy URL is: http://www.nic.lk/index.php/en/idn-policy I am on an IDN Panel with Sarves at the upcoming ICANN meeting in Singapore, and I'd like to make the changes to the web page so that they are included there as well.

Verified for 188.8.131.52 by verifying checkin in source.
Today I tried with Firefox 5. Still I see that both IDNs are not white-listed. I installed the Firefox 5 Tamil version. Will that be an issue? Sarves
Sarves: can you give a link to an example domain which doesn't work? I can't find any registered domains under either TLD using Google's site-specific search. Gerv
Gerv : We have many government sites and cooperate sites with IDN. Please see some of them : தளம்.அரசு.இலங்கை தளம்.ஆள்களமையம்.இலங்கை தளம்.லக்செயலிகள்.இலங்கை தளம்.லக்செயலிகள்.இலங்கை தளம்.தகவல்.அரசு.இலங்கை தளம்.பாராளுமன்றம்.இலங்கை වෙබ්.රජය.ලංකා වෙබ්.ලක්වසම.ලංකා වෙබ්.ලක්යෙදුම්.ලංකා වෙබ්.තොරතුරු.රජය.ලංකා වෙබ්.පාර්ලිමේන්තුව.ලංකා I am not sure why Google does not point to any of these. I checked about:config on Firefox 5, however I do not see that .lanka (.xn--fzc2c9e2c) and .ilangai (.xn--xkc2al3hye2a) are whitelisted. Thanks, Sarves
Hmm. Yes, I missed a branch :-( I checked it in on trunk, 4.0, 3.6 and 3.5 but missed 5.0. I'm not totally sure how to nominate it now, and whether there is any follow-up release planned on the 5.0 branch, but let's try setting this flag. Gerv
leaving this nominated for tracking 5 until we know if we're doing a 5 respin/chemspill. if we don't do a chemspill 5.0.x, we'll minus this when we ship 6.
Asa: dveditz policy with older branches is to permit checkins of bugs like this, and if it turns out that we never ship, then no harm done. See comment 14 for an example - we have no plans to ship again off 1.9.1. Is the policy different for more recent branches? Gerv
Gerv, yeah. New policy because we've got an entirely different build set-up for the new channels system.
