With the community’s IANA stewardship transition plan now completed and submitted, it’s a good time to reflect that this process didn’t just start when the US government made its announcement in March 2014.
Since the creation of ICANN in 1998, the community has fervently supported this transition. For more than 10 years, APNIC and the RIR communities have actively advocated for the end of a special role by a single government. Here are some historical highlights of the last 10 years of the IANA stewardship transition from an APNIC and number community perspective.
