Hi Romeo & NCC DNS team - first of all, congrats to the addition of resilience to the NCC's DNS services! Good to have this aboard these days, I (unfortunately have to) think...

If not, is it a contract (draft) that has been put on the table by the NCC? Or, vice versa, VeriSign's standard contract for such services? Or rather - as a result of heavy negotiations in smoke filled rooms behind closed doors ;-) - an amalgam of both? Also, how (far) the three final bidders met the RfP requirements would be interesting. I don't mind if the names of the non-winning two would be anonymized. Thanks & best, -C.
