Dot Root Consortium
= an Internet Global Community test bed for the DNS root system evolution
URL = http://dot-root.com/
"To research, develop and validate responses to the current DNS root server system and to support studies in the evolution and extension of the DNS, the dot-root proposition consists of organizing a multiple clustering of experimental parallel and asynchronous root servers, allowing their total mutual control in real-time.
It is to be a non-profit Global Internet Community project open to every Internet participant from every nation, culture and interest. It is to be jointly managed by its Name Server Managers gathered by root server systems. It is to be advised by the most competent and responsible persons and by the whole interested public."
